Dobson has been turning heads on the scene since winning his first participation trophy in Grade 11 jazz band. Since then he has been catapulting to the top of Canada’s diverse music industry at breakneck speed
At a performance at in Toronto with Canadian psych-rock outfit, Old Man Canyon, one review noted that, “the bassist was a really good guy.” Recently performing in Pop Montreal with local electronic RnB group, soclose, one french review (through Google translate) described Dobson as, “completely in control of his instrument, he took us out of the concert some very juicy bass lines.” The reviewer went on to call the show, “an adequate performance of correct music.”
There is no doubt that this glowing praise comes from Dobson’s multi-instrumental training (having toured professionally as a bassist, guitarist, keyboardist, and vocalist) and composition/production background (Dobson holds a BMus in Jazz Studies – Composition, and is currently studying at the University of Victory for his MMus in Music Technology).
These skills have brought Dobson to legendary venues like Toronto’s Lee’s Palace, LA’s The Troubadour, Chicago’s Lincoln Hall, and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg; opening for and kind-of-hanging-out-with world-renown acts like Neko Case, Foster The People, Bahamas, Sharon Van Etten, The Paper Kites, and Milky Chance
This cat really lays it down, man.
