Graham has more than two decades of professional experience performing on both double bass and electric bass. His freelance career involves performing and recording in diverse settings from orchestral and chamber to jazz, musical theatre, and contemporary popular and world music styles.  The breadth of Graham's experience speaks to his highly adaptable playing style and desire to always be learning.

Ongoing activities include frequent performances with Dreamer: The Supertramp Experience, and appearances in the double bass sections of various orchestras such as the Kingston Symphony and Niagara Symphony Orchestras.

Graham has been featured with tribute acts such as Absolute Journey, Just Journey, and Absolute Leppard.  Other notable past activities have included performing with singer-songwriter Jeffery Straker, and playing in the pit orchestras for the highly acclaimed new musical Life After (winner of six Dora awards), Sheridan College's production of The Phantom of the Opera, The Secret Garden and Rent with Mainstage Theatre, and The Immigrant: A Musical for Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company.

As a composer, Graham has broad interests, spanning from the neo-baroque to twelve-tone technique and contemporary jazz styles. He is also in demand as an arranger, transcriber, and copyist. Composition highlights include a sixty-minute requiem mass for large orchestra and mixed SATB chorus, and a three-movement suite for 18-piece jazz ensemble, as well as several chamber and solo works. Graham was a featured composer for Art Song Lab in Vancouver, BC where his piece Shadow Street was premiered.

Music education forms the backbone of Graham's musical life.  He enjoys working with young musicians and adults alike, in both private instruction and group settings. With nearly two decades of teaching experience he welcomes students of all levels and all ages.  Currently on faculty at Branksome Hall's Music Conservatory, and maintaining his own studio in central Toronto, Graham offers instruction on the double bass and electric bass, and in all areas of music theory and composition.  His studio is fully equipped for high-end virtual instruction and he has students as far away as BC.  Former students have gone on to study at prestigious institutions such as Berklee College of Music in Boston and the University of Toronto.  Graham is also a faculty member at National Music Camp of Canada as double bass and composition instructor. 

Graham received his PhD from York University. He was awarded a prestigious SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship for his dissertation research which focuses on the requiem mass. Graham also holds an MA from York and a BMus from Queen’s University in Kingston, ON. He has been the recipient of numerous awards during his university studies including the Lawrence Heisey Graduate Award at York, and the Graham George Memorial Scholarship in Composition at Queen's.
