Dan Loomis

Bassist Daniel Loomis currently resides in New York City where he is rapidly becoming one of the city's most in-demand bassists.

Daniel grew up and learned his trade in St. Louis, playing professionally with the city’s best musicians from a young age. In 1998 he enrolled in Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville where he had the opportunity to study with the renowned jazz bassist Tom Kennedy, pianist Reggie Thomas and guitarist Rick Haydon. The musicians had a strong influence on Daniel’s musical thinking, imbuing him with a strong respect for groove and tradition while reminding him to always keep an open ear and mind. During his time at SIUE Daniel began teaching during the summers at the Birch Creek Music Academy, a selective jazz summer academy in Door County, Wisconsin. Here he met bassist Jeff Campbell, who was to become his teacher and a major influence upon his playing.
