WHO IS THIS brilliantfish?

Elusive, neurotic, multi-talented, stubborn, adaptable, dark, comedic, confessional, intense, paradoxical.

The man who is brilliantfish has been called many things, but he is a musician, composer, artist and graphic designer based in Toronto, Canada. Since 1997, he has released 18 recordings ranging from post-industrial rock to dark pop, straight up rock and several stops in between. He is hard to pigeonhole and he wouldn’t have it any other way. The work comes first.

As a drummer/percussionist/vocalist, brilliantfish has worked with dozens of diverse artists whose work spans many genres and many decades. His credits include live and recorded work with CadreDerek Christie, Jonathan Seet, Daniel Joseph (aka Sugarlips), Laurelle Augustyn, Priya Thomas, Clara Engel, Frank Patrick, Jim Field (Northumbria), Meryn Cadell, Sally McKay, Leah Salomaa, Rachel Smith, David Leask, Neil Chapman, Rhea’s Obsession, Vern Cheechoo, David Sereda, Pauline Groen and Sleeps Six, The Diviners, Neotone, Zombo Zombo, Ray Montford and Michael Pickett to name a few and has worked with producers Terry Brown, Michael-Phillip Wojewoda, Peter J. Moore, John Switzer, Kevin Ker and Angelo Oddi.
With this wealth of experience, brilliantfish also works as a ‘virtual session drummer’, working from his home studio to provide world class drum tracks for both indie and professional projects. Click here for ‘drums by fish’.
With his wife sweet T, brilliantfish is also half of the duo Hush & Rust, who released their debut album ‘These blue dreams’ in 2016.

18 releases as of this year, and at least 4 more in production.
