Dante Milano

DANTE MILANO is a Chicago-born keyboardist performing, producing, and experimenting with jazz, R&B, and neo-soul genres. Rooted in the blues, he began studying with Chicago blues legends at an early age and has since performed Black American Music both in the U.S. and internationally. A graduate of the Brubeck Institute at the University of the Pacific, MILANO released his debut album in 2021, “DANTE.” He has played and produced with artists of varying genres such as Carl Allen, Lewis Nash, Terrell Stafford, Rodney Whittaker, Omar Apollo, Kenny Beats, Chance the Rapper, Peter Cottontail, New Direction, and more. With an exhibited fluency in leaping between genres, some of his major influences include John Hicks, Art Blakey, J Dilla, Roy Hargrove, Chopin, John P. Kee, Hiatus Kaiyote, and Miles Davis.

William Corduroy, A.K.A. Xach Wagner, is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and musician hailing from Northern California. At 23 years old, he has produced and played on countless albums, adding his own musical flare to his collaborations. While his main instrument is guitar, he is equally skilled on electric bass, showcasing his versatility through original projects with his group SOUR FUNK. He now resides in Chicago, Illinois, and is working as a musician, both in the field and in the studio.

Jeremy Joél Warren is a drummer, percussionist, composer, and band leader based in Chicago, Illinois. With a background in jazz, gospel, blues, and many other Black American-influenced genres, Jeremy studied under the mentorship of jazz greats Dana Hall, Charles Heath, Ernie Adams, and Kendrick Scott.

Combining genre-bending melodies, soulful chops, and an unfettered sonic curiosity, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Ian Santillano honors the roots of the jazz, funk, and soul sounds in his music. The son of first-generation Filipino immigrants, Ian attended Santa Clara University where he studied jazz guitar and music theory. Ian released his debut album entitled “Intropy” in September 2022. Today, Ian leads a 10-piece band that performs live arrangements throughout the Bay Area.
