Bassist-composer Solon McDade grew up on stage and has developed into a versatile performer, equally able to unleash his "complex and literate bass playing" (Dirty Linen Magazine) in jazz clubs, blues bars, and at folk and bluegrass festivals. He has been a part of numerous tours in North America, Europe and China and his distinctive melodic and powerful bass playing provides the foundation on which the sound of many recordings are built. His group The McDades won a 2006 Juno Award their album "Bloom" and his entire recording catalog features over twenty nominations for various awards.

Solon is pleased to share his most recent musical creations featuring some of Canada's best jazz musicians - Solon's brother Jeremiah McDade on tenor sax and Montrealers Donny Kennedy on alto sax, Paul Shrofel at the piano and Rich Irwin on drums.
