Biography

Born: February 28, 1972
Trumpeter/Composer Liam Sillery was born in a New Jersey suburb outside of New York City. His uncle, also a trumpet player, introduced him to music at an early age. Liam considers himself fortunate to have been surrounded by great teachers/musicians throughout the years. However, most significant was his acquaintance with the great tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson during his undergraduate studies at the University Of South Florida. Since, Liam performed as a freelance musician until 2002 when he attended the Manhattan School Of Music. At MSM studies had included such notables as Cecil Bridgewater, Dave Liebman, Phil Markowitz, Joan Stiles, Mark Soskin, and Garry Dial. In 2004 Liam released his first recording as a leader, Minor Changes (OA2 22020). Liam’s second cd, On The Fly (OA2 22030,) recorded with the David Sills Quartet was released on October 17, 2006. Liam has performed with musicians such as Max Wild, Richard Huntley, David Sills, John Ellis, Tony Moreno, Soren Moller, Josh Ginsberg, Matt Aronoff, Jesse Stacken, Thomas Morgan, and others. During the summer of 2007, Liam recorded his third cd with Matt Blostein, Jesse Stacken, Thomas Morgan, and Vinnie Sperazza. The new disc Outskirts was released in January.

MUSIC REVIEW: Liam Sillery, “Outskirts”
by Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide

On a third release for Origin’s more exploratory arm OA2, trumpeter Liam Sillery moves slightly toward the realm of free jazz. The pieces are not entirely improvised, nor are they fully charted.
