TJ Whitelaw '11

Toronto Musician and Guitar Player makes a living as a sought-after side guy

Excerpt from Fall 2017 issue of The Link:

TJ Whitelaw '11 opted for a Gap Year after graduating from CDS and hasn’t looked back since. For the next three years, he played all the time with classmate and best friend, JP Saxe, on JP’s debut album. JP is now recording in LA, and TJ has been playing with seasoned players in Toronto doing a lot of club gigs and corporate/wedding events.

“It’s nice because it gives me time to be creative by day without having to hold down a full-time job,” explains TJ. “It’s a pretty crazy life in terms of all the gigs you pack into a year. If I had to put a list of things that I have recorded – I couldn’t remember even one because there is so much.”
