Juno Award-winner Chris Tarry is a prominent bassists in the modern jazz scene. Although based in New York City, Tarry was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, on August 24, 1970. In 1993 he formed his own group, called — obviously — the Chris Tarry Group, and with said group recorded and released eight albums over the course of the ensemble's 15-year career. The lineups of Tarry's bands have been ever-changing, resulting in different sounds, but also nearly always resulting in award nominations. In 2007 the Chris Tarry Group released the album Almost Certainly Dreaming, which garnered Tarry a Juno Award nomination for 2008. Tarry won the award in an earlier instance, as a member of the group Metalwood, which featured prominent players Mike Murley, Ian Froman, and Brad Turner. He joined that group in 1996.
