Hull Jazz Festival
Bill Laurance: Solo Piano Show
"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 world-renowned multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, dubbed a “jazz maestro” by The Guardian, Laurance is probably best known as a founding member of Snarky Puppy, the Grammy-winning collective based out of Brooklyn.
Autumn 2017 sees Bill exploring his first love, the Piano, with the recording of a solo piano album and a solo piano tour, enhanced with the subtle addition of electronics. It's a further exploration of the meeting of Classical and Jazz, that come together in a deeper way in this brand-new performance.
