Kieran Overs

Bassist Overs has been part of the Toronto jazz scene for the past twenty years. During this time he played with such visiting artists as Chet Baker, Sonny Stitt, Zoot Sims, George Shearing, Mel Torme, Kenny Wheeler, Sonny Greenwich, Dewey Redman, Junior Mance, Kenny Barron, Barry Harris and Harold Mabern.

He has thus built himself a wide reputation working in these settings and also benefited greatly by taking trips to Denmark to study with Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and perform.

In Toronto he leads groups from a quartet to an octet and also still works as a sideman with other musicians.
