Originally from Créteil, France, jazz pianist and composer Simon Denizart now calls Montréal, Québec home. He arrived in 2011 and quickly made a name for himself as one of the cities top players. With a nod to World Music, his style and repertoire can be soft, sensitive and energizing with subtle and accessible melodies. His first three releases (labels 270 Sessions and Laborie Jazz) were all nominated for ADISQ Awards in the Album of the Year category, jazz. Selected for the 2014 Rimouski Festival's next generation competition, he won the audience prize which enabled him to travel and perform throughout Québec. He received significant praise and recognition from CBC/SRC having been chosen as one of their rising stars with the Radio Canada Revelation Award which highlights and encourages the next generation of emerging artists.
Signed to Justin Time Records world wide – Simon’s fifth album ‘Piece of Mind’ will be available March 29th, 2024 and will be preceded by 5 singles – the first of which will be available November 10th, 2023.
