Anna Ruddick


Anna Ruddick grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and began her career at age 16, performing with the South Saskatchewan Youth Orchestra. Anna soon advanced to McGill University to complete a Jazz Performance degree, during which time she integrated herself into Montreal’s internationally significant indie rock/pop scene of the 2000s, parlaying her formal training into a reputation for skill in any musical context. Anna has risen to become one of the most in-demand, versatile bassists in Canada. She has performed on over sixty studio and live records (and earned several Junos) and has toured with a who’s-who of Canadian talent, including Randy Bachman, Bry Webb, Paul Reddick, City and Colour, Fefe Dobson, Amanda Rheaume, Ben Caplan, Erin Costelo and Ian Blurton.

Training: McGill University, Jazz Performance (2006). Banff Centre of the Arts, Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music (2007)
