TMT NEWS – The Manhattan Transfer’s Tim Hauser will be at home until the new year, in order to fully recover from a recent spinal surgery. We’re sending lots of love and healing thoughts Tim’s way. For the next couple of months we are pleased to share the stage with another remarkably talented bass, Trist Curless…
Trist Ethan Curless – A native of Cheyenne, WY, Trist is no stranger to vocal harmonies! He attended the University of Northern Colorado, majoring in music education. In 1995, he co-founded the pop-jazz vocal group m-pact, with which Trist has performed in festivals and concert halls around the world. He’s also written, arranged and produced many of the group’s songs. www.m-pact.com
Trist can be found on the other side of the microphone as well, working as an audio engineer for several vocal groups and bands, including Straight No Chaser and Take 6.
When he’s not performing and mixing, Trist also finds time to teach private voice and participate as a clinician and adjudicator in clinics and festivals worldwide.
Trist is having the time of his life making music with m-pact, Straight No Chaser, Take 6, Bobby McFerrin, New York Voices, Vox Audio, VoicePlay, and now The Manhattan Transfer!
TMT is so excited to be performing at the 12th Annual Tokyo Jazz Festival tomorrow ~ Sunday, September 8th!
Hope to see you all there!
