Doron Segal was seven years old when he started taking piano lessons at the Karmiel conservatory in northern Israel. At the conservatory, he spent nine years studying classical piano playing. Then, at the age of sixteen, he was introduced to jazz music by his brother who gave him recordings of jazz music played by Michel Petrucciani, Chick Corea and Oscar Peterson. He became fascinated by the atmosphere of jazz music and began playing in jazz groups. In the years that followed, he played jazz music in various projects, competitions and bands in Israel. At the age of twenty-one, Doron started studying at the Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem, majoring in Jazz Piano, studying with Avi Adrian and Yuval Cohen. Towards his graduation, Doron was awarded a scholarship of excellence from The Israeli Union Of Performing Artists. At the end of 2014 Doron moved to Berlin in order to form his own trio. He became a part of the Berlin music scene, participating in different projects and working with many local and international artists, playing in Berlin as well as in other European cities and most recently in South East Asia. Towards the end of 2017 Doron recorded his debut album with his trio, which consists of his own compositions and arrangements, as well as a cover of Sound Garden’s ‘Black Hole Sun’. The album will be released by Village Live Records on CD, Vinyl & Digital formats in February 2018.
