After more than a decade of being a session bassist in both Vancouver and Kelowna, Jonathan Tromsness wanted to do more to express his individual voice. He always wrote songs on the side but never thought about recording or releasing them. After finishing a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Studies at Capilano University and writing compositions for TV commercials, he grew confident in his ability to write, produce, and record.
