Jérôme Beaulieu

1987 -

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Jazz

Born in 1987, composer and pianist Jérôme Beaulieu learned his chops at Université de Montréal, where he met future musical mates Philippe Leduc (double bass) and William Côté (drums). The young trio quickly made a name for itself, winning Montreal contest Jazz en Rafale and the Grand Prix du Festi-Jazz in Rimouski in the same year. A debut album, entitled L'Homme sur la lune, was launched in the spring of 2012 and nominated for the Opus Prize for jazz album of the year. The following year, the trio launched Chercher l'Équilibre, taking home the 2014 Félix for jazz album of the year at the Gala de l'ADISQ. Named Jazz Discovery of the 2013-2014 by Radio-Canada, the trio stands out for its musical experimentation and a modern jazz repertoire boasting varied influences: acoustic music enhanced with electronic rhythms and textures, a palette of diverse textures accented with samples, eccentric percussion, effects and prepared instruments.
