Catherine Hiltz on SoundBetter

Looking for some diversity? Session bassist with Tegan and Sara; sessions with Sylvia Massey, Alex Hope (Alanis Morisette), and Howard Redekopp (Mother Mother, New Pornographers). 15+ years of touring and session experience, multi-instrumentalist and production.

Hi folks! I am a session multi-instrumentalist, producer, and composer from Treaty 6 territory Edmonton, AB, currently working on unceded and occupied Coast Salish Territories in Vancouver BC.

As a session musician, I've recorded with artists Tegan and Sara and Rae Spoon. I've done sessions with producers Sylvia Massey (Johnny Cash, Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Alex Hope (Tegan and Sara, Alannis Morisette), and Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother, The New Pornographers). I play in LGBTQ2S+ event band Queer As Funk, and Loose Fang (with former Matthew Good Band drummer Ian Browne). I tour with a number of artists including Mathew V and The Katherines (604 Records). I have performed in groups with members of KMFDM, The Matthew Good Band, and Mother Mother, and have a history of international touring opening for Steve Vai, Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings, The Electric Six, Ria Mae, Blue Rodeo, Stars, The Ataris, and many more. I have a jazz school background with a deep love for The Beatles and Radiohead.

I also work as a composer, producer, transcriber and engraver.

I love dogs and cats equally, and am a big fan of retro video games. I look forward to meeting you!
