Bram De Looze is an extremely talented piano player.
Even at a young age, everyone was talking about him as a jazz pianist.
He studied jazz piano at the Lemmens Instituut in Leuven (BE) with Ron Van Rossum and at the Conservatory of Antwerp (BE) with Erik Vermeulen.
In 2012 he moved to New York - together with Lander Gyselinck - where he studied at the prestigious New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and was taught by great jazz masters such as Marc Copland, Reggie Workman, Uri Caine and many others.
He’s a jack of many trades. He is a member of different bands including Pentadox, LABtrio, Stéphane Galland & The Mystery of KEM, Dre Hocevar Trio, De Looze – Verheyen – Baron, Stephanos Chytiris’ Flux, De Looze / Machtel / De Waele, Piano e Forte and Septych. He has also performed with Bert Joris, Dré Pallemaerts, Ben Sluijs, Nic Thys, Brussels Jazz Orchestra with Maria Joao & David Linx and a collaboration with bassist Greg Cohen for the Jazz Middelheim Festival.
In addition, he’s composer-pianist of his own international project, a promising septet, “Septych” and conquers international stages with his solo project “Piano e forte”.
At Gent Jazz 2016 he won the SABAM Jazz Award for ‘Young Talent’., and in 2018 a Klara award as young promising talent.
Improvisation is the core fundament of Bram’s piano playing. Beside the dominant role of jazz, he finds his inspiration in creative, historical and abstract contemporary, classical music.
In other words, the sky is the limit. Combined with his natural flair, it makes him the extraordinary talent he is.
