Ottawa New Music Creators


Greggory Clark

Greggory Clark is an award-winning trombonist and bassist, writer and producer. His research and thesis re: music education and third-culture kids is mostly informed (or, biased) by his own experiences as a child of Canadian parents, raised in countries and cultures foreign to either. With teacher and bandleader Ken MacKay, his musical journey began in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. He holds a baccalaureate from the École international de Bruxelles, where Clark studied with Alisa Jimenez, Dr. Eric Delson and Clay Wacholz, and for a short while he taught at the school in his adopted hometown. He has since earned degrees and certificates from the Brighton Institute of Modern Music, the University of Ottawa, and Humber College. Clark has performed and/or recorded with musicians including Drew Zaremba, Matthew Watanabe, Cameron Hill, Julien Dussault, Fritz Bayer & Philip Schwendke–who were members of the AMIS Big Band Jazz ensemble touring Europe and Japan during 2005/06–Jeff Kingsbury, Yolande Laroche, Yuri Bakker, Michael Powell & Jeremy Jordan. He is a member of Pony Girl and founder of Ottawa’s Pop Drone music label.
