Montreal-based drummer-composer Aaron Dolman weaves together myriad influences - from Folk to Jazz - to create music that sways between evocative melodies, energetic improvisations and ethereal soundscapes. It is 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.

My deepest thanks to Sarah Rossy, David Ryshpan, John Hollenbeck and Kevin Dean for gifting me with their insight, encouragement and experience. // To my dad Howard, sister Rachel and partner Nathalie, for endless love and support. // To the band and my entire creative team for your artistry and friendship.

Most of all, I thank my mom, Shirley, for her relentless kindness. This music is dedicated to her memory.


The child in this photo is my mom. The photo was taken at her 3rd birthday party.
