John Stetch

Born in Edmonton, John Stetch has emerged on the world stage as one of the finest pianists of his generation. He's a two-time Juno nominee and has earned 2nd Place in the Thelonious Monk Composer's Competition and claimed the 1st Place Prix du Jazz du Maurier at the 1998 Montreal International Jazz Festival. His solo concerts at the Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival were broadcast on Branford Marsalis' NPR show, Jazz Set. In 2002, Stetch released Ukrainianism, a blend of jazz, classical, and world-influenced arrangements. It was hailed by Down Beat magazine as, "one of the best solo piano recordings in recent years." JazzTimes praised Stetch for "possessing an unlimited imagination, unique harmonic and rhythmic conceptions and the digital dexterity to execute any idea he hears." Stetch describes the freedom of solo piano as, "an exhilarating experience that pushes my musicianship to the limit." After hearing Stetch in performance, you’ll wonder where that limit might be.
