D. J. Sparr
As one of Americas preeminent composer-performers, D. J. Sparr has caught the attention of critics with his eclectic style, described as “pop-Romantic… iridescent and wondrous” (Mercury News) and “suits the boundary erasing spirit of today’s new-music world” (New York Times). The Los Angeles Times praises him as “an excellent soloist” and the Santa Cruz Sentinel says that he “wowed an enthusiastic audience…Sparr’s guitar sang in a near-human voice.” In 2011, D. J. was named one of NPR Music listeners “favorite composers under 40.” D. J. has composed-for and performed-with internationally renowned ensembles such as the London Symphony, Washington National Opera, and eighth blackbird. His music has received awards from BMI, New Music USA, and the League of Composers/ISCM. He lives in the mystical high plains of the wild west with his wife Kimberly, their son Harris, and Nanette the hound dog.
