Andy Milne

Toronto native Andy Milne draws inspiration from various forms of music, politics, philosophy, comedy, and science fiction. Some of his musical influences include Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum, Herbie Nichols, Bela Bartok, Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder. Considered one of the most important and respected voices in jazz today, Milne is the recipient of numerous awards and commissions, including the prestigious Civitella Fellowship in 2011. In 2012 he was commissioned by The Japan Foundation and New Music USA to create Strings and Serpents; a multi-disciplinary project featuring artists from Japan, France, Canada and the US. He recently composed and produced the film score for seven documentary films directed by William Shatner. In 2013, Milne was selected to compose an orchestral work for The American Composers Orchestra as part of their JCOI New Music Readings. His highly recognizable group Dapp Theory will release their newest CD, Forward in All Directions, produced by multiple Grammy winner, Jimmy Haslip, in September 2014
