London-based producer, composer and pianist Dominic Canning is a founding member of the groundbreaking Steam Down collective, Project Karnak and Triforce and also Musical Director for Brit Award-winning Celeste. In 2019, Dominic launched his first solo project under the name Doom Cannon.
This will be the first time the project has featured as part of EFG London Jazz Festival, building on Doom Cannon's SXSW appearance via Abbey Road Studios, one of Popwire's artist picks.
Doom Cannon's music attempts to capture/reflect the inflections of beauty existing alongside the injustice and terror of our postmodern world; drawing as he does on his experience as a young British Black man.
Having spent years touring globally, Dominic has already won two Jazz FM Awards with Steam Down, as well as performing live at Brit Awards and Later with Jools with Celeste. With a debut album synthesising profound melodic/harmonic foundations, due for release later this year, Doom Cannon is carving out a place for himself in the British Jazz scene and has set himself up as one watch.
