Myk Freedman is a 32-year-old Canada Council grant recipient, lap steel player, composer, arranger, and band leader. In 2003 he moved from Toronto to NYC to study music and has since performed with John Zorn, William Parker, Elliot Sharp, Cyro Baptista and Kenney Wessel, as well as with countless others. Myk’s compositions have been recorded by many of his own groups, as well as by ensembles: The MK Groove Orchestra, In a China Shop, and Laila and Smitty. In 2008, MARTIN & HAYNES, a Toronto duo made up of Justin Haynes and Jean Martin, released an entire record dedicated to his music, entitled FREEDMAN. In 2009 they enlisted Ryan Driver to play the “ruler bass” to record and release a second album of his music entitled FREEDMAN Live at the Western Front. His arrangements have been premiered at world famous venues such as The Blue Note, John Zorn’s The Stone, The Knitting Factory and the 2004 Distillery Jazz Festival where he was nominated for the Emerging Artist Award. In 2008, Myk worked with iconoclast John Oswald, arranging Strauss’ music for the Sun Ra Solar Arkestra.
