Friday, September 16, 2022
7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Description

Three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated Bali-born pianist Joey Alexander has accrued a lifetime of accolades. The pianist, composer and bandleader is one of the most emotive and compelling pianist-composers active on the scene today—including being the youngest artist ever nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in a jazz category, topping the Billboard Jazz Albums chart on multiple releases, earning profiles in The New York Times and 60 Minutes, and most recently being signed to Mack Avenue Records.

 At the young age of 18, Alexander has already performed at the 58th GRAMMY Awards and performed with Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding for the Obamas at the White House. He was the youngest artist ever invited to lead a band at the Newport Jazz Festival, sold out both his debut at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall and the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Since moving to New York City from Indonesia in 2014, Alexander has been a renowned headliner at festivals and concert halls around the globe. What has remained consistent throughout his career is a steadfast dedication to his craft as a serious composer, improviser and technician. In 2021, he followed his major-label debut album, WARNA (Verve Records), with three new singles: SALTUnder the Sun and Summer Rising on Verve. He also recently released his debut ORIGIN, an album of all original compositions (Mack Avenue Records, May 2022). On Spotify alone, the young pianist averages 350K listeners per month – something not regularly seen in instrumental music on the streaming giant.
