ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Toronto solo bassist Luke Vajsar was born in Prague, Czech Republic on May 17, 1979. In 1989 he immigrated to Hamilton, Canada with his brother and parents. When given the opportunity to play music at the age of 10 in elementary school, he immediately became interested. Even though he selected bass as his instrument he was given the trombone by his teacher in grade 6 and developed his skills on the instrument to a level where he was an important part in the best of big bands in the city of Burlington, Hamilton and neighboring regions; winning national and provincial awards through to 1999. Also, he began playing guitar at this time and kept playing till he finally got his hands on a bass at the age of 13. He transferred his guitar skills to bass playing and became involved with many bands and musicians from his neighborhood. Throughout this time he became inspired to perform solo as well. Solo bass performances led to the recording of eleven solo albums “Rough Times? Good Times?” “In the Loop” “Soundtracks”, “Prospect”, “Electric Eel” “Solus”, “Quakes”, “Flash Visions”, “Selected Poems by Luke Vajsar”, “Rough Around the Edges” and “Adventure”. His first solo album “Rough Times? Good Times” was recorded in 2001 and the release followed with live performances mostly between Toronto and Hamilton area. After a band break-up in 2006, Luke bounced back by immediately releasing an album called “In the Loop” which paved a way to his sound today with the use of loop pedals and other effects. From 2006 to 2009, while feeling inspired, Luke released 8 albums one after the other all in different styles and ideas, experimenting with sounds, genres, effects and melodies. This time period is credited to developing Luke’s tone and unique atmospheric sound. When asked what genre of music he plays the answer most of the time is “Experimental Lounge” though is subject to change, as being tied down to a particular genre and reducing musical freedom is never an option. Luke is now a full-time member of a band named CODEX (www.codexmusic.com) with his close friend, Canada’s drum n’ bass pioneer and producer of his “Adventure” album Luca Hiroyuki d’Addario. He plays live mostly solo bass around the Toronto area in venues such as Tranzac, Aspetta, and The Central, which are hang-outs more open to creative music rather than commercial “cover band” style pubs. However, Luke will usually play anywhere as a challenge to explore the effect of his sound in different surroundings and versatile crowds. He also has a trio under the name “Luke Vajsar's HYPNOTIC SMASH”, which Rogers TV show “Toronto Sessions” has called “One of the funkiest bands Toronto has to offer”. He now resides in Toronto’s Bloordale neighbourhood where he has secured a group of musician contacts and fans that push each other to constantly perform and develop their art to the highest degree.
