JESSICA ACKERLEY TRIO




Jessica Ackerley - guitar
Mat Muntz - bass
Zack O'Farrill - drums

In the past decade, Jessica Ackerley has already established herself on the Canadian and American rock and jazz scene as a unique guitarist, composer and band leader. Born and raised in Alberta, Jessica now resides in New York City where she has worked alongside notable musicians such as Tyshawn Sorey and Martin Bisi, as well as had the opportunity to perform at established venues like John Zorn's The Stone, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Blue Note.

Her musical palette is diverse, drawing from highly-refined compositional structure to free improvisation and jazz, with a slight nod to no wave and avant garde soundscapes. All About Jazz has stated upon the release of her debut album that "her work demonstrates her independence and refusal to conform, yet it is rooted firmly in that which has influenced her. If she maintains this course Ackerley has a brilliant career ahead of her."

Jessica continuously tries to expand her musical horizons with various projects across Canada and the U.S. For her trio’s Yardbird Suite debut, she is accompanied by Mat Muntz on bass and Zack O’Farrill on drums.

Tickets are $24, plus applicable fees. Members will be reimbursed at the door.
