Time On My Hands (Brendan Rothwell)

Brendan Rothwell is an accomplished Canadian bassist, composer, and producer. He believes in bucking the trend of the bass being in the background, preferring to optimize the tone, scale, feeling and musicality of the instrument.

His playing demonstrates meaning and depth Brendan describes the 1986 album from Miles Davis, Tutu, featuring the great Marcus Miller, as the trigger and driving force for his decision to play the bass.

The art of business and leadership is inextricably linked in all of Brendan’s projects, and he firmly believes in applying a business mindset to the industry of music.
