Mercer Shavelson grew up in Long Island, NY and has been around music all of his life. His late mother and jazz singer Rebecca Dorsey gigged throughout his childhood, and in fact even while pregnant with him. So it was no surprise when he started playing music at the age of six, first on drums, before switching to violin and then eventually taking up the piano by age nine. Shavelson played his first local gig while in middle school, and by the time he was fifteen worked regularly as a keyboardist, playing in both Jazz and R&B groups around Long Island. Later on, in the Spring of 2017, Shavelson was admitted to the New School for Jazz on full academic scholarship, at the age of 17. Since then, he has gotten his feet wet in the New York City scene, bringing his own groups to venues such as The Bitter End, Williamsburg Music Center and Shapeshifter Lab. Shavelson has received instruction from numerous jazz masters, including Reggie Workman, Joanne Brackeen, Aaron Goldberg and Kris Davis, and looks forward to continuing his studies into his sophomore year of college. Currently residing in Brooklyn, NY, he aims to approach music progressively and creatively, challenging listeners with unique instrumentation, grooves, harmony, and other elements.
