Julian Shore


Julian Shore has been called “a pianist/composer who beyond the obvious elegance of his playing has a clear sense of the bigger artistic picture” (Peter Hum, Ottowa Times). An "extremely precocious, serious musician” (JAZZIZ) he "riffs and waxes with a sense of space usually reserved for more veteran players." (DownBeat) From Narragansett, Rhode Island, Shore grew up listening to his father playing Bach on his home piano and would often sing along as a toddler. After starting piano lessons at a young age he began studies with famed educator Hal Crook as a teenager. Shortly thereafter Shore was awarded a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music where he entered in Fall 2005
