John Stetch
Stetch grew up in the clean and cold suburbs of Edmonton, and was heavily involved in the Ukrainian community which is so rich in the Canadian prairies. Half a century ago, his Grandmother Savella wrote the definitive Ukrainian cookbook, and Grandfather Julian wrote the definitive Ukrainian Grammar textbook which was used in many universities. At age 9, John was given his father Myron's clarinet along with some lessons. There were many jazz records in the home and his dad tuned in to the local jazz radio station whenever they drove anywhere. Stetch played in a Ukrainian wedding band for many years which led to one of his most praised albums "Ukrainianism". In his late teens, Stetch became fascinated by the rhythmic and harmonic possibilities and overall beauty and completeness of the piano, and in his late teens, switched to it and managed to attain a music degree from McGill University a few years after.

In 1993 he moved to NYC where he became the pianist in Rufus Reid's band, while living with roommate Seamus Blake. He found a classical teacher that changed his life - Burton Hatheway, (now 88 years old) who studied with Dora Zaslawski at the Manhattan School of Music. Burton's students of note include 3-time Grammy winner Lisa Kaplan and rising star Felix Jarrar.

When recording albums or booking tours in the 90's, Stetch collaborated with greats such as Jeff Ballard, Mark Turner, Chris Cheek, Joe Martin, Jorge Rossy, Mike Murley, Rodney Green, and Bill McHenry. Out of 15 CDs, 6 were Juno nominated, including "TV Trio" which contains re-arranged TV themes, and Off With The Cuffs which features Stetchs radical re-interpretations of Chopin, Bach, Mozart and Shostakovich.

Steinway Artist Stetch now divides his time between Vancouver, where his partner Joanna is, and NYC where his flagship group is  VulneraVille", featuring Steve Kortyka, Ben Tiberio and Philippe Lemm. Says Stetch: "Never before have I had such great chemistry and devotion".
