Kerry Galloway Biography
Kerry’s thirty years of experience as a musician and musical educator is anchored in over three decades of industry experience in roles from bassist to producer to copyist to composer. His experience spans styles from rap (Sweatshop Union) to pop-opera (Canadian Tenors) to fusion jazz (New Noakes Quartet), country (k.d. lang), klezmer (Olam), “Buddha Bar” style lounge/chillout (Astrid), latin (Gabriel Palatchi Trio), funk, R&B, reggae, Brazilian, salsa and many others. He is the musical director of Steelin' In The Years, Vancouver's tribute to Steely Dan.


Kerry’s extensive teaching experience includes Bass PMI at Capilano College (including the creation of their first jury requirements for degree studies in bass performance), the Courtney Youth Music Center and the New Westminster Jazz Clinic, and courses ranging from Theory of Record Production, Electronic Music and Music Theory at the Pacific Audio Visual and Harbourside Institutes. Kerry’s roster of private bass students have included such now-nationally-renowned bassists Marc Rogers, Andre Lachance and Darren Radtke. He was a co-founder of the Vancouver Bass Conference (a 3 day "bass boot camp”) and the Pacific Jazz Inventors Association, has worked both locally and internationally as a clinician, was a one-time collaborator on Logic Networks (a third-party manual for an earlier version of Apple Logic) and is currently authoring his own text called Bare Knuckle Music Theory, a "graphic novel of Music Theory". His online lessons at activebass.com have garnered a staggering 1,000,000+ page views and remained consistently in activebass.com’s “Top 10 Most Popular Lessons” out of 9000+ for a decade.


Kerry has been studio bassist on hundreds of albums spanning a compendium of styles for artists such as Sweatshop Union (Local 604), Curtis (Portrait Of The Artist), Dan Mangan (Postcards and Daydreaming), M (a.k.a. Robin Scott ("Pop Music"), Gabriel Palatchi Trio (Trivolution). He has served as tour bassist with artists ranging from the Canadian Tenors, k.d. lang (including performances on The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson) and Leon Bibb; live performances with the Vancouver Symphony, Rolf Harris, Bob Hope, and is a veteran of fourteen European tours as featured soloist with the Paris-based New Noakes Quartet.

on the other side of the glass -

Kerry’s productions range from acoustic folk (Michael Friedman "Random Acts Of Tuning"), electronica/lounge (Astrid "Red Umbrella"), offbeat klezmer (Olam. "Foreign Dreams"), driving R&B jazz (Steve Hilliam "Inside The Lines") and zany-meets sultry cabaret (Libeatos, "Libeatos"). Hhis work for film and TV has included music editing for the Cartoon Network’s #1 series Ed, Edd and Eddy; his “miscellaneous musical duties” have ranged from ghostwriting cues for film and television to the creation of the accompanying charts and transcriptions for Randy Bachman’s DVD/book release "Every Song Tells A Story".
