With his unique voice, virtuosic piano chops and dapper sense of style, Jon Batiste transcends music genres and has ignited the NYC music scene. Raised among the sounds and rhythms of New Orleans, Bastiste comes from a renowned lineage of performers.

At 25, he has performed in over 40 countries, playing everywhere from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to the Kennedy Center and Concertgebouw. With his modern take on American music, and clever use of the harmonaboard, Batiste has collaborated with musicians from across the spectrum - Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Buffett, Harry Connick Jr., Roy Hargrove, Cassandra Wilson, Mark O'Connnor and Asher Roth among them.
