Chicago-born Dan Berkson has been a professional musician since his mid teens. He spent his early years as a piano player, playing six nights a week in Chicago theatre shows by the age of 16. He entered the New England Conservatory of Music after High School and quickly immersed himself in the world of jazz. While at NEC, he studied with jazz greats such as Danilo Perez, Cecil McBee and George Russell.
Dan then turned his hand to electronic music and production, relocating to London and spending 10 years releasing records and performing live electronic sets around the world, from Sonar Music Festival in Barcelona to Tel-Aviv and Peru.
Dan has now returned to his roots, reconnecting with Jazz piano and making a name for himself in London’s thriving jazz scene. He has recently completed an MFA from Trinity Laban Conservatoire in South London, and is working on an album with his trio.
