Dan Wilkins' musical journey started at home, playing with his father, pianist Skip Wilkins. First taken by the haunting ballads of Stan Getz and Dexter Gordon, Wilkins naturally took to the tenor saxophone. Teachings of David and Caris Liebman, proved invaluable to his continuous musical pursuit. In 2008, Wilkins moved to New York City to attend the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with saxophonists Steve Wilson and Rich Perry, and pianists Garry Dial and Phil Markowitz.
Throughout his tenure at MSM, Wilkins worked and toured with the collaborative group COLONY, performing around the New York area at 92nd St Y Tribeca, Cornelia St. Cafe, and the Iridium Jazz Club, among others. In October 2012, Wilkins was featured as Artist of the Month at the Deer Head Inn in Delaware Water Gap. Internationally, Wilkins has been performing at clubs and festivals around the Czech Republic, Germany, and Greece and educating at summer Festivals such as the Czech Jazz Workshop 2012 and 2013, and the Kryoneri Jazz Workshop 2013.
