Stephen Trohoske was born into a family who loved music, and grew up to the sounds of many different styles, evolving into a deep love and devotion to Jazz, World, Dub, Reggae, Avant Jazz, Black Rock, Funk, ECM, Brit Blues, Punk & Post Punk. Much of this music included melodic bass lines, walking lines, riffs, dub bass & deep ostinatos that would become part of Stephen's trademark sound.
His first introduction to performing was singing in Post punk Bands at the age of 14. Stephen often stood outside of clubs to hear the bands play before he was of age to go inside. There he met many great local Jazz players who would hang with him on their breaks. Stephen's love for the bass guitar would eventually lead him to study the instrument under one of those musicians, guitarist/multi instrumentalist Frank Singer (Berklee Grad, Charlie Banacos Grad). Stephen expanded his studies to include electric bass playing, music theory, and jazz improvisation.
Inspired by his studies and a huge library of recordings, Stephen pursued a career as a professional bassist and has played with some of the top Jazz artists in the world. These experiences led to the formation of his own groups playing his original compositions. Stephen's Bands have included Art Groupies, Hands Of Thieves, Is What It Is, Ahimsa Beat, 3bop, Aziz and SoulClap. He has toured with The Foley Project, worked with dance companies, and composed a piece for a Toronto-based dance company in 2005. Stephen has performed and recorded or shared the stage with such artists as Ernest Dawkins, Poet Monica Igras, G.Calvin Weston, Kelvyn Bell, Dwayne Dolphin, Dave Shiavone, Christian Howes, Corey Wilkes, Lou Stelutte, Eddie Baccus Jr., Greg Bandy, Chris Hemmingway, Tony Grey, David "Fuze" Fiuczynski, Robbie "SuperSax" Edwards, Foley, Cecil Ruckers, Dr. Nathan Davis, Rodger Humphries, Blood Ulmer, Claire Daly, Chelsea Baratz, Marcus Belgrave, Uhmar Raheem, Cheryl Hodge, DJ Logic, Willie Waldman, John Shannon's Wings of Sound and Todd Clouser's Love Electric.
