About Phil Dwyer:
In 2013 Multi-instrumentalist Phil Dwyer was appointed as a Member of the Order Of Canada for “his contributions to jazz as a performer, composer and producer, and for increasing access to music education in his community.” In January 2015, he was recognized by the Royal Conservatory of Music as an Honorary Fellow. These distinctions arise from an illustrious thirty-year career collaborating with a storied roster of great musical artists, crossing stylistic and geographic borders. Phil has appeared on ten Juno Award-winning recordings, and over thirty nominated recordings. He is also a recipient of the prestigious K.M. Hunter Prize for excellence in the arts.
Ben Dwyer is a freelance musician who has performed in many cities in North America and Europe with various ensembles in different genres. He is also a co-founder of the geographically-divergent collective Nomad. Ben provides a contrastingly complementary voice to Phil’s powerful, virtuosic saxophone and piano playing.
Alan Jones has been performed with Phil Dwyer across US and Canada for over 3 decades. Based in Portland Oregon, Alan has a storied and successful career as a touring drummer and recording artist. He has a reputation for teaching generations of the best and brightest musicians at his Academy of Music.
