Toronto-based drummer, composer and producer Robert Diack has announced the independent release of his second album as a bandleader, Small Bridges.

The new release follows Diack’s 2018 debut Lost Villages, a concept album that sonically details a series of townships lost to catastrophic flooding.

Small Bridges was written shortly after Diack’s arrival in New York to pursue further education at The New School. Diack’s compositions reflect on a period of isolation and challenges arising from his relocation from Canada to the U.S.

Diack, who participated in JAZZ.FM91’s Jazzology program in 2021, aims to broadly display the range of his body of work, blending a wide spectrum of genres including traditional and contemporary jazz, post-rock, electronic music and country.
