‘A knockout, as dynamic a personality as he is virtuosic on the keys’ – WhatsOnStage

‘A fascinating name to follow in any context’ – All About Jazz

Mathis Picard is a pianist, composer and producer. Based in New York City and from both France and Madagascar, Mathis honours his multi-cultural background by merging musical influences and elevating sonic synchronicity. Named a “rising star” by The Scotsman, Mathis is an ASCAP Next Generation of Songwriters Recipient, a member of the Montreux Jazz Foundation, and a Juilliard Alumni under the mentorship of Kenny Barron.

His band The Sound Orchestra has performed all over the USA from NuBlu in New York to Black Cat in San Francisco. Their debut genre-bending EP World Unity came out in 2020 on Outside In Music Records which put him on the map as “a fascinating name to follow in any context” (All About Jazz). Mathis has shared the stage with artists such as Braxton Cook, Ron Carter, Lillias White, Lee Ritenour, Kindness, Wynton Marsalis, Veronica Swift, Etienne Charles and many more.

Rooted in the tradition of live acoustic performance and deemed as “one to watch” by Jazz Wise magazine, Mathis also shines as a solo pianist, having performed at NY Fashion Week, Little Island, Umbria Jazz Festival and NPR. Mathis will release his long-awaited debut solo piano album titled Live at the Museum in the winter of 2022. Recorded with a live audience at the National Jazz Museum of Harlem in New York City, Live at the Museum is a sonic journey through which Mathis explores the museum of his own life in music, a dedication to his roots in jazz, classical and electronic music.
