NSTT in 2013 to study jazz at the Manhattan School of Music. In 2014 I returned to Canada and set up shop in Toronto and started putting together a group to play my original music. The group is titled Dog Leg Dilemma. In September of 2015 we were honoured to open up the Sudbury Jazz Festival as the first place winners of the Jazz Sudbury Emerging Artist Competition."  
Thank you,
Peter Bull

Peter and his band launched a crowd funding campaign on indiegogo to help record their first studio album with NS producer, Kevin Brunkhorst.
