Young Belgian pianist Bram De Looze is one the latest sensations on the international jazz scene. Already hailed as the “the new Keith Jarrett”, Bram has earned considerable acclaim both for solo improvisation projects on different types of pianos and for his high calibre jazz collaborations across Europe. In 2013 he released the trio album Vice Versa with NY master drummer Eric McPherson and Berlin bass player Felix Henkelhausen. A fourth solo album will follow in 2024 on the occasion of his first tour down under.

“Living up to his reputation as free spirit, Bram De Looze has produced a deeply personal work that is at once innovative and profound.” – Jazzhalo

Bram’s Australian tour has been generously supported by “Flanders state of the art”.

Artist Bram De Looze, piano


Belgian pianist Bram De Looze is one of those musicians who is always on the lookout for new options, detours and possibilities to expand his art. His solo career began in a surprising way with ‘Piano e forte‘ (2016), a project for which he approached historical instruments from a contemporary perspective. The switch to Chris Maene’s Straight Strung Grand Piano (created by Daniel Barenboim) for ‘Switch The Stream‘ (2018) indicated a renewed search for movement, evolution and introspection. With ‘Colour Talk‘ (2020), he continued this solo trajectory on an already revolutionary piano model, again seeking innovation from within.
