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 progressed into self-taught
guitar starting at 12yo.
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 publishing opportunities as an original Artist 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 approaches to production precipitated the formation of many excellent groups including Cascadia Groove.
Cascadia Groove is the first live performance vehicle for Gary's compositions.
