ABOUT

I am a freelance bassist, educator, composer and band leader who has been performing in and around the greater Tidewater area of Virginia since 1994. I earned my bachelors degree in Music Education from Old Dominion University in August 2000. I taught in the Virginia public school system as an orchestra director for thirteen years and as an adjunct jazz bass professor at William and Mary College and Christopher Newport University.

For over 20 years I have had the pleasure of being a member of the Virginia Symphony Jazz Orchestra, Roy Muth Big Band and Eddie Williams Quartet. You can also find me performing with my own ensembles, Left of Center, the Chris Brydge trio/ quartet, Liz Terrell Quartet and as part of the bass and voice duo Liz & Brydge.

Some of the people I have had the honor to share the stage and perform with are Sheila Jordan, Brianna Thomas, John Abercrombie, Joe Magnarelli, Steve Wilson, Joe Locke, Frank Foster, Byron Stripling, John Goldsby, Carmen Bradford, Karrin Allyson, Rene Marie, Dominique Eade, Melanie Charles, Alan Parker, Justin Kauflin, Daniel Clarke, John D’Earth,  John Toomey, Hod O’Brien, Woody Beckner, Stephanie Nakasian, Freda Payne, Lorna Luft, Debbie Boone, Shirley Jones, Bernadette Peters and many other international jazz and pop artists.
