Doomcannon

DoomCannon (aka Dominic Canning) is a London-based composer, producer, arranger, pianist/keyboardist and educator. His work melds organic and synthetic sounds in a collision of jazz from neo-bop to contemporary to modal jazz, with copious intersections between drums and electronic beats alongside textures from classical and film music, and West African and Caribbean styles. Canning spearheaded several forward-thinking, jazz-inspired outfits on London's vitally creative scene, including the Steam Down collective, Project Karnak, and Triforce. He served as musical director for neo-soul singer Celeste. DoomCannon's first single, 2021's live "Amalgamation," wed progressive jazz, skittering beats, and South and West African harmonics. He signed to Brownswood and issued a dramatic studio version with an octet in February 2022. He followed with the singles "Times" in March and "Black Liberation" in May. Alongside six others, all three tracks appeared on the full-length album Renaissance that July.
