My name is Thomas Lesnick. At 26 years old, I've done more in my decade of professional playing that most people wouldn't do in a life time. I've performed on dozens of records, toured the world, played hundreds of concerts, and worked with a number of Juno and Grammy winning producers.
I graduated from York University with my Bachelor of Fine Arts; Music in Jazz Percussion and attended The University of British Columbia for my Masters in Jazz Percussion. I've studied with Larnell Lewis, Barry Romberg, Anthony Michelli, Steve Mancuso, and Paul Delong.
The producers I've worked with include David Bradstreet (Juno-winning songwriter), Dave Baksh (Sum 41, Brown Brigade), and Steve MacKinnon (Olivia Newton John, Serena Ryder).
I'm fortunate enough to have shared the stage with a number of incredible artists, including Burton Cummings, Big Wreck, and Treble Charger.
