Born in Ottawa, NICK MACLEAN is “one of the most gifted young Toronto pianists to come along in the last few years ” (Adrean Farrugia, Juno winning jazz pianist) and has quickly become one of the most in demand 20-something piano players in that city’s bustling jazz scene.
Nick leads two critically acclaimed ensembles, the funkified electric jazz group SNAGGLE and the hard-swinging modern jazz group NICK MACLEAN QUARTET. Both groups have released multi-award winning albums and with them Nick has toured right across Canada as well as internationally, performing for countless audiences as well as running jazz improvisation workshops for students and listeners eager to learn more about the artform.
Most recently Nick has been hard at work on a debut solo piano album called “Can You Hear Me?” which features a collection of originals, standards, and spontaneous improvisations. “Can You Hear Me?” is due for release on Browntasauras Records in the fall of 2021. From Miles Davis & Herbie Hancock to Weather Report & Snarky Puppy, Maclean’s musical influences are diverse.
