Bassist and composer Brandi Disterheft is fast becoming one of jazz's brightest lights. Still in her twenties, she's already impressed thousands of listeners for her imaginative live shows and well-conceived recordings.
Brandi's premiere album, Debut, won her the 2008 JUNO award (Canada's Grammy), and her CV already includes concerts in Japan and Haiti, jazz festivals from Vienna to Chicago, and a performance at Carnegie Hall.
It's not only her fiery bass playing and charismatic performances that make people take notice. It's also her innovative writing style, informed by various influences from Mingus to Bjork. As Oscar Peterson said, "She is what we call serious."
