Chad McCullough
Trumpter Chad McCullough has had a busy 2010 and things haven't been letting up.

After a January spent performing in Europe under his own name, touring and recording earlier this year with Andrew Olivers Kora Band, McCullough is currently on an 14 city tour across Canada and the western U.S. with the international cooperative group Tunnel Six featuring Ben Dietschi, saxophones (Toronto, ON); Andrew Oliver, piano (Portland, OR); Brian Seligman, guitar (Toronto, ON); Ron Hynes, bass (Halifax, NS) and Tyson Stubelek, drums (New York City, NY). The group formed last year when McCullough and company were at the Banff Center for the Arts.

Speaking from a stop in Brandon, Manitoba, McCullough said, “This tour has allowed us to develop our sound, build on the existing chemistry, and take this music to a deeper level then any project I've ever been apart of."

Tunnel Six performs in Seattle next Monday, May 31st at Tulas Jazz Club. A complete tour schedule can be found here.

On the recording front, McCullough recorded a new CD with Slovakian pianist Michal Vanoucek, Mark Taylor, Matt Jorgensen and Dave Captein earlier this year and will enter the studio in June for a new project with with Belgian pianist Bram Weijters, accompanied by John Bishop and Chuck Deardorf.

“I'm pretty excited by all of the artistically rewarding things going on right now. This [Tunnel Six] tour has been amazing. I'll be going to the JazzWeek conference in Rochester with Origin Records and doing a West Coast tour with Portland-based pianist Ben Darwish in support of his new record. I'm just really humbled by all of the great experiences that I get to be apart of. I can't think of anything Id rather be doing right now!"
