A stalwart of the Brooklyn creative music scene, Dan Loomis is a daring leader, a sought-after sideman, and a prolific composer whose unique view of the world and music has led to the creation of innovative and moving works. Loomis has produced over a dozen recordings as leader and co-leader of collective ensembles including Spoke and The Wee Trio. In 2020, he released the project “Job’s Trials: A Jazz Song Cycle”, an original musical/theatrical presentation which earned glowing praise from the press. A song from “Job’s Trials” went on to become the title track on the album“Abundance”, earning Loomis a Juno Award with Turboprop. Loomis is also consistently in demand as a recording artist and sideman, most notably with The Joel Frahm Trio and Vadim Neselovskyi trio, which recently recorded with John Zorn on his Book of Beriah release.


“Songs for the Mother Tree”, a suite of Tree-born songs dives into the unique personalities and wisdoms of trees. Building on the recent explosion of new scientific discoveries about the communications, intelligences, and communal lives of trees, these songs combine text and music to create an immersive experience, inviting the audiences to see the world from a viewpoint of a tree.



Nilsson is a prolific composer and flute player with a socially integrated approach to music making. Her most recent release is “Pulses”, a Chamber Music America New Jazz works piece exploring the intersection between Jazz phrasing and spoken language through the voice of Dr Maya Angelou. Nilsson is currently working on a song cycle exploring the concept of “Lullabies For A World On Fire”. It is a collection of songs to celebrate the beauty found in the cracks. Like the flower that fought its way through concrete to reach for the sun with the joy of its entire being. Lullabies themselves are songs that exist in transition. They are meant to take us from one state to another, from awake to asleep, alert to relaxed, on edge to a sense of safety. In this collection of songs it is not her intent to gloss over the brutality of the world, the darkness and horror of the realities we live through in this time of climate collapse, war, political extremity and division. The intent here is to create something that holds space for both the beauty and brutality of it all. Our world is on fire, and these songs are meant to be a balm to soothe when things feel overwhelming in the hope to cultivate the strength we need in order to continue face what is coming.
