Bret Higgins’ Atlas Revolt is the brainchild of the Toronto bassist and created as a vehicle for his original instrumental compositions.  Formed in 2013, the group explores genre-defying music that draws inspiration largely from film scores, jazz, rock, surf, and elements of Eastern European, African and South American music. Notably gaining the attention of New York saxophonist-composer John Zorn, their first CD was released on his Tzadik Records in 2015 and has been received with glowing reviews.  Although a collective of seasoned touring musicians make up the project, this is the groups first  North American tour.
