Matt Pease credits his musical eccentricity to growing up with a jazz musician father and playing in punk bands.


In addition to performing with Brishen, Matt plays with the Capital City Syncopators, a prohibition era swing band.  He has also performed with such artists as Daniel Lapp, Mark Atkinson, Michael Kaeshammer, Juno award winner Lee Aaron, Hugh Fraser, Oliver Swain, Zora Young, Louise Rose, Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne, Brian Nova, Ian McDougall, James Harman and the Twisters. Matt has previously played at the DuMaurier and Toronto Dominion JazzFests and many other jazz, blues and folk festivals around western Canada. When Matt was just starting out he shared a stage with Edgar Winter, the Wailers, and Green Day as a member of the Victoria band Fungkus.


Matt studied with the great Canadian drummer Claude Ranger. He is known for his musicality and, through his many years of experience, the ability to play confidently in any style.
