JUNO AWARD nominee RON DAVIS. Pianist, composer, CBC and BBC Radio repeat performer, international favourite, solo artist, critics’ choice.

Ron is a Canadian jazz visionary. His music blends genres and pushes boundaries, building on his jazz and classical training. He seeks new textures, new forms, new compositions, new formations and new ways of presenting his signature sound without losing a connection to audiences. The music is diverse in a characteristically Canadian way.

Ron has released 13 critically acclaimed albums. His 12th, SymphRONica UpfRONt was honoured with a 2020 JUNO AWARD (Canada’s Grammy or BAFTA awards) “INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR” NOMINATION.

Ron has travelled the world playing his innovative, fresh music. From Toronto to Tokyo to London to Edinburgh. He has given repeat performances on BBC Radio 3, and shows for Japanese royalty, audiences in Trafalgar Square for Canada 150 celebrations, and repeat invitations to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Ron is the founder of SYMPHRONICA, which combines a stellar Canadian jazz ensemble with full symphony orchestra or string quartet, playing original compositions. The result is GENRE-DEFYING AND MUSICALLY ELECTRIFYING. 2020 saw SymphRONica launch its 7th season in Toronto.

After early classical studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music with Margaret Parsons Poole and William Andrews, Ron studied with Darwyn Aitken, a student of both Oscar Peterson, and classical great David Saperton (George Gershwin’s brother-in-law).
