Julian Shore

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Julian Shore began playing piano at a young age. Starting out playing blues, pop and classical repertoire he found jazz when he began high school and has since made that a focus of sorts. He began to study improvisation and composition with famed jazz educator Hal Crook at 17, and soon after was awarded a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music. Since then he's had the opportunity to perform or record with musicians such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Gretchen Parlato, Myron Walden, Gilad Hekselman, Kendrick Scott, Mark Giuliana, Ferenc Nemeth and Hal Crook among many others....

“Filaments is an assured, organic debut from a pianist/composer who beyond the obvious elegance of his playing has a clear sense of the bigger artistic picture.” - Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen

“There literally isn’t a bad song on it. It’s a step in an auspicious direction: let’s hope there’s more where this came from.” -Lucid Culture

“A fluid player with a sure touch and modernist appeal... his solos are clean and graceful and he gives his band generous room that encourages sparkling interplay... Shore is definitely one to watch.” - Nick Bewsey, ICON

“Adaptable and strong writing... One of those charming albums [which] ends up getting played an awful lot more than some of the big-name releases.” - Peter Bacon, thejazzbreakfast.com

“Julian Shore has composed a thoughtful group of pieces... Both [Filaments and Star of Jupiter] are built around new forms of jazz that will not please those dedicated to standards. But it does show how freshness keeps music alive.” Bob Karlovitis, Pittsburgh Tribune Review
