New Series: Introducing David Archuleta’s Band

Posted by bebereader on Saturday, April 23, 2011

1. Keyboard Player: Mark Nilan Jr.

He’s David’s new keyboard player and he’s all that jazz! Mark Nilan Jr. was born in 1983 and raised in Detroit in a music loving family. At an early age he became familiar with legends like Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ray Charles and Chick Corea, all who helped bring him to where he is today, an accomplished jazz pianist and composer who is also the studio and on-screen keyboard player for Fox’s hit TV show, “Glee”.

During his high school years, he won awards for ‘best jazz soloist’ at local music festivals, received a spotlight performance at the Detroit International Jazz Festival, played professionally and taught music theory at his school. He received a full scholarship to Wayne State University where he studied jazz piano and was honored in 2004 as Best Jazz Composer. Then he went to Los Angeles and earned a Master’s Degree in jazz piano from the California Institute of the Arts.

One year later in 2009, he wrote his debut album, “Hands On”, containing ten original songs. He said:

“I really wanted to break the smooth jazz stereotype of drum machine grooves and eight bar loops and just write great songs with a live band. My goal is to bring back the fire to jazz—a hot, intense vibe to the contemporary jazz world.”

The master engineer for the project, Ron Boustead knew a good thing when he saw it. “I could tell 30 seconds into the album that this was a high quality project—the tunes, musicianship, recording and mixing are all top notch.”

But Mark Nilan isn’t all about jazz.

”I love music, all genres…I love living in all sorts of musical worlds. During the making of the album I’d go to Paramount for a day of shooting Glee and playing pop tunes and then come home and work on some of my great fresh jazz music.”

He works in a vast range of music including jazz, pop and rap. He’s able to combine jazz with current music to create a unique sound which is why he’s known in the field as a “musical monster“.
