Gary Tobin - Guitar
Being the beneficiary of a musical family,
Gary started his musical journey at 6 with
formal lessons on violin (from Dr. Robert
Emile) which grew into self-taught guitar
starting in 7th grade.
Over years with the help of mentors like
guitarist Cornell John Tannesy, Hollywood
composer David Connor (and others),
Gary grew into a competent sideman
working with other like-minded studio
musicians in the Los Angeles area and many other notable artists over
the last 4 decades. This exposure has contributed to his compositional
vocabulary in jazz, Latin jazz, fusion, orchestral works, electronica and other genres that led to many opportunities as an original Artist as a guitarist, jazz violinist and composer providing compositional work for the City Of Seattle, Microsoft, Asymetrix, the U.S. Forestry Service, various corporations, and many others.
His experience and consistent drive to grow and develop new ideas and technical approach to production precipitated the formation of many excellent groups including the group, Cascadia Groove (CG).
CG is the prime vehicle for Gary’s output of jazz, Latin jazz, and other instrumental works.
