Internationally respected composer, Jeff van Dyck was born and raised in Vancouver Canada. He was mentored by a childhood spent in studios with his father Ralph Dyck, also a composer and technology specialist. "My Dad worked in R & D for Roland and was pivotal in designing the modern sequencer as we know it today. I got to hang around when he worked with artists such as Toto and Michael Jackson. I didn't know who those people were at the time, but I was constantly surrounded by music and the creation process. It was inevitable that creating music would become my life too."
