Event Description

On Dec. 30, 2013 Phil Dwyer was appointed as a Member of the Order Of Canada. He was cited for “his contributions to jazz as a performer, composer and producer, and for increasing access to music education in his community.” In January 2015 he was recognized by the Royal Conservatory of Music as an Honorary Fellow. These distinctions come as Dwyer looks back at an illustrious thirty year career which has crossed stylistic and geographic borders and has included collaborations with a storied roster of great musical artists, including appearances on a dozen Juno Award-winning recordings.

Before moving back to the west coast, Phil lived in Toronto from 1988 to 2004. During that time his distinctive saxophone sound was featured on hundreds of recording sessions including Juno Award-winning albums with Hugh Fraser, Dave Young, Guido Basso, and Joe Sealy. He was a first-call sideman in concert halls and jazz clubs with artists such as Red Rodney, Tom Harrell, Randy Brecker, Gino Vannelli, Alain Caron, Don Thompson, Dave Young, Kenny Wheeler, Ingrid Jensen, Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Boz Scaggs among others. During that time he also toured extensively in Canada and has appeared at major clubs and festivals in over 20 other countries.
