I’ve been using a Nord keyboard for the past few years and it’s definitely the best keyboard I’ve ever had the opportunity to play! The touch is excellent and the sounds quality and variety are awesome! The Nord Stage 2 is now an integral part of the Emie R Roussel Trio’s sound!

Emie R Roussel Trio

Emie R Roussel is a pianist and composer from Quebec, Canada. She discovered the fascinating world of music through her parents, themselves musicians and singers. She began studying classical piano at the age of 5 and continued lessons until she was 13. After a complete two-year break, she decided to follow her instincts and her love of improvisation to begin studying jazz with her father, jazz pianist Martin Roussel. He would be her mentor until she started studies at Cégep de St-Laurent college under the guidance of Lorraine Desmarais. In 2008, Emie made her entrance at Université de Montréal in jazz piano interpretation with Luc Beaugrand and completed in 2011 her bachelor’s degree.

In 2010, Emie founded the Emie R Roussel Trio with whom she recorded her first album that same year, entitled Temps Inégal. Winner of the Félix at l'ADISQ for the 2015 jazz album of the year, which honoured Quantum, their 3rd CD, and the 2013-14 Opus prize for jazz album of the year with their preceding release, TRANSIT, the Emie R Roussel Trio is now an unstoppable force in the current Canadian jazz scene, having experienced a dizzying ascent since 2010. With Emie R Roussel on piano (Revelation Radio-Canada Jazz 2014-2015), Nicolas Bédard on bass and Dominic Cloutier on drums, the group has been doing more and more concerts in Canada and making its mark around the world. The trio performed in ten countries and on four continents (America, Oceania, Europe, Asia). The Emie R Roussel Trio stands out because of its unique musical universe, a blend of their many influences.
