Ottawa's very own pianist and composer Tim Nast explores his place “Here” on Earth through new album.
Not only will he release his new album Here, but he will also kick off a 12-date, Ottawa Valley-wide tour! To give fans an early taste of what to expect on the album, Nast has been pre-releasing tracks online weekly leading up to the full album release.
The talented pianist and composer took some time out of his busy tour prep and music-making to share with us what inspired the theme of the album, why he’s doing weekly pre-releases ahead of the album release, and what to expect at his upcoming shows.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I started playing the piano at age 6 and, by the time I was 16, I was composing and performing publicly. After high school, I attended university (Uvic and UBC) but ultimately left university to launch a professional music career that found me performing across Canada and Germany – sometimes to standing room only. Through my 20s I composed hundreds of songs and recorded 6 albums.
