Inviting both the trio and listener on a unique musical journey, this project paints a joyous portrait of the musical community that the pianist has built over a decade in The United States, whist bringing Picard's newest compositions to the forefront. Mathis Picard, born May 30th, 1995, is a French-Malagasy pianist, composer, producer, and bandleader who currently resides in New York City. Rooted in the tradition of live acoustic performance while incorporating the latest technology, Mathis creates his own musical style that is influenced by his multinational background. Mathis, who began playing the piano at the age of 3, was immediately passionate about music's healing quality and now focuses on sharing that passion globally. Mathis currently leads a solo project, a trio project and his orchestra, "The Sound Orchestra".
