BILL LAURANCE piano
After releasing, "Live at Ronnie Scott's" (Flint Music) but unable to tour in 2020 due to recent global events, Bill has decided to explore his first love, the piano. Solo performances put Bill’s focus on the piano and electronics in a further exploration of the meeting of Classical and Jazz.
"It’s a personal exploration. I'm discovering my own voice, my own sound all the time", explains Bill Laurance. "I get a kick out of that journey.”
That journey has led Laurance, an English native currently living in London, across the globe and through a myriad of award-winning musical projects. A three times Grammy winning, world-renowned multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, dubbed a “jazz maestro” by The Guardian. Laurance is also a member of the phenomenon that is Snarky Puppy.
Billboard - "Spellbinding, emotive jazz"
The Guardian - "Jazz Maestro"
Having establishing himself as an expressive composer and proficient bandleader with his 2014 album Flint, Bill Laurance: a London-based pianist and founding member of the three times GRAMMY award-winning fusion powerhouse Snarky Puppy, continues to explore an exciting range of sounds and ensemble combinations.
Bill Laurance is a champion of cutting-edge keyboard developments, and is endorsed by Moog, Mellotron, Sequential, Korg, Nord, Roli Seaboard, Yamaha, Roland, Arp Odyssey, Keyscape, Sound Brenner, Native Instruments and MXR.
