What can we say about our friend Jeff Heisholt? He's a skilled and creative Canadian musician and keyboardist, who can definitely be considered a true ‘working’ player in the Toronto music scene. He’s spent the last 20 years on the road, throwing down mad ivory playing skills with bands and artists such as The Trews, Peter Elkas, Terra Lightfoot, Skydiggers, and Burt Neilson Band.
We were really excited to sit down with Jeff and discuss his new synthesizer project ‘Current Fantasy’, a project he streams regularly to his Facebook channel, that while all 'Jeff', definitely channels many of his own musical heroes like 808 State, Aphex Twin, The Orb and Tangerine Dream.
We also talk about growing up in a small town, following the musicians touring dream, G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), accretion (bless you), and how recording and playing shows has changed in the middle of a pandemic.
