Aaron Dolman weaves together two of his great musical loves – Folk and Jazz – to create works that sway between evocative melodies, exciting improvisations and ethereal soundscapes. His debut release, “Nostalgia and Other Fantasies”, is a collection of original music inspired by the feelings of nostalgia that are stirred up when sifting through old family photos, driving though the Canadian Prairies or sitting by a quiet lake at midnight.

From an early age Deniz Lim-Sersan was learning piano on the lap of his mother. Exposed to the traditional rhythms and melodies of the Balkans through his father and classical music from his mother, the early fusion of musical influences naturally lead Deniz to jazz music. Enamored with the improvisation and creative process in jazz, Deniz pursued music receiving his Bachelor’s in Performance from Humber College in 2016 studying keyboard and later attended the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music in 2017 under the direction of Vijay Iyer.
To Deniz the mastery of music has always been a pursuit of expression, a venture into art and spirituality. Deniz’s artistic process is unique and brings a depth of experience that enriches the musical experience of any project.
