Storm Nilson

Storm Nilson has been performing, recording, and educating throughout the United States and Canada for the past 13 years. His musical inspiration has been nurtured by opportunities to play with some of the world’s top Jazz musicians such as Wynton Marsalis, Charlie Haden, Steve Cardenas, and his long time friend and mentor, Bruce Forman. As an educator, Storm has taught as a guest artist and traveling clinician for the Monterey Jazz Festival and JazzMaster’s Workshops. He was also recently featured at the 2007 50th Anniversary of the Monterey Jazz Festival and has performed extensively in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Montreal.

In 2001, Storm began pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree at California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles, where he had the great privilege of studying with Larry Koonse, Joe LaBarbera, David Roitstein, Miroslav Tadic, Darek Oles, and Jazz luminary Charlie Haden. In 2007, Storm received the prestigious Schulich Merit Scholarship to attend McGill University in Montreal. While in Montreal, he studied and collaborated with famed Polish pianist/composer Jan Jarczyk, as well as participated in numerous collaborations with acclaimed Canadian tenor players Chet Doxas and Joel Miller, assuming the guitar responsibilities from Kurt Rosenwinkel in Miller’s band Mandala.

In late 2010, Storm signed with f.Boo Music, an indie label located in Los Angeles and has recently released his debut album HOME, a collection of solo acoustic pieces. Additionally being released this spring is the debut album of Red Oak Duo, a jazz/Americana flavored collaboration with pianist Adam Benjamin. Storm currently divides his time between Portland, OR and Los Angeles.
