Hailed in the Canadian press as "a jazz genius to call our own" (MacLean's Magazine), two-time Juno Award winning pianist and composer David Braid has a style described by Paris Transatlantic Magazine as “refreshingly uncategorizable.” Braid has performed across The United States, Canada, Western Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Australia, and Brazil. Combining harmonic intricacies fundamental to European classical music, the spontaneity of American jazz, and the cultural open-mindedness of Canada, Braid's original music impresses audiences with its originality, melodic lyricism, and compositional logic.
