Hi, I’m Will Chernoff! I’m a Canadian jazz bassist from New Westminster, British Columbia. Check out my latest album, Maybe Eventually by William Chernoff.
Playing and teaching
Currently, I play in a jazz trio with Francis Henson on guitar and Carson Tworow on drums.
I made my latest album with the trio, thanks to a FACTOR Artist Development grant.
Find my first album Aim to Stay and my other recordings wherever you stream music, or get them on Bandcamp:
I also teach music lessons independently online.
I’m known for writing about music business and new Canadian releases, always incorporating an active performing artist's perspective.
I publish the media outlet for the Vancouver jazz scene, Rhythm Changes.
Away from Rhythm Changes, my article about how I got on a Spotify editorial playlist for the first time has been viewed by thousands of people worldwide.
I've also written freelance for Jazzfuel, Roots Music Canada, Arts Commons, and more.
