A most excellent new EP from Alessia Cara is now out, and I'm happy to say that I play Double-Bass all over the thing (and a wee bit of bass ukulele).

Tennis Partner is my labour of/or love. My long lost brother. A favourite . . . child?
A place to explore the world of production beyond radio friendly songs.
Somewhere you can find inconceivable sounds and bring them back to your normal life.
Something I like to share with you.
But enough about me, here's some more about me:
Tyler Emond is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and music producer,
who has worked with a broad array of acts found in Canada and
around the globe.
A resident of Toronto, Canada, one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities, Tyler has been performing in genres that run the gamut of Pop/Rock, Classical Arabic, Afro Maqam, Ethiopian Dance and Jazz, Baroque, Flamenco, Balkan folk, Free Improv, American Jazz, Musical Theatre, Blues, Soul/RnB, Singer Songwriters and many many more.
He has toured all over the world with various artists including shows in Germany, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Japan, Scotland, Mexico, Jamaica, USA and Canada.
A devout student of music, Tyler graduated from the Humber music program with their highest distinction, the Oscar Peterson Prize. He then went on to study a classical composition masters at York University. While doing so he was also studying Viola De Gamba and classical double-bass with renowned Baroque music educator Joelle Morton. One of his current focuses is the Arabic Maqam system and it's use of quarter tones and half flats.
He has since been commissioned to write chamber pieces, string arrangements,
and big band charts for Jazz artist Dave Douglas, platinum selling pop singer Tyler Shaw, and Toronto new music institution Spectrum Music.
A player of many instruments, Tyler’s main love is for the Double-Bass. He is also one of the rare examples of a Double-Bassist who tunes his instrument in 5ths. Tyler is often seen playing Electric Bass, lead Electric Guitar, Synthesizers, and running Abelton tracks for pop artists. He has even created some of his own instruments to meet his needs including an 8 string octo-mando bass, 12 string baritone fretless guitar, and electric mandola. In addition to these inventions, Tyler also plays Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo, Viola De Gamba, Drums, and Classical Percussion.
