Winner of the 2015 Félix Award for Jazz Album of the Year for their third album, Quantum, and the 2013-14 Opus Prize for Jazz Album of the Year for their preceding release, TRANSIT, the Emie R. Roussel Trio has experienced a dizzying ascent since 2010, and is now an unstoppable force in the Canadian jazz scene. With Emie R. Roussel on piano, Nicolas Bédard on bass, and Dominic Cloutier on drums, the trio delivers creative and captivating jazz with passion and undeniable chemistry. After a global tour, the Trio – newly inspired, and with a whole new level of complicity and mutual understanding – released Intersections in 2017. The hard-won musical cohesion of the group’s three members puts a particular spotlight on groove and melody via a sound at times more acoustic, at others more electric.
Emie is supported by The Canada Council.
