Thom Golub lives and plays in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He started playing string bass professionally over a decade ago and has never looked back. As years went on he became very interested in writing classical or ’New Music.’ For the last decade he has pursued this avenue and received performances and recordings by local, national and international artists. He has a love of free improvisation in music and has played with many organized as well as ad hoc ensembles to this end. He is a founding member of The Improvised Network (TIN), formed in 2001 with Lane Arndt, David Hoyle and Eric Weiden. He attended the Vancouver Creative Music Institute workshop in 2006 under the musical direction of Marilyn Crispell and Mark Helias.
