“…her writing is phenomenally brilliant. She is a standout talent. Michaud-Gagnon’s music flows masterfully with poise and grace. She commands the piano with elegance, subtlety, and a refined quiet knowing.” — All About Jazz
Award-winning pianist/ composer Gentiane MG perceives music, above all, as a powerful means of expression. Joined by bassist Levi Dover and drummer Louis-Vincent Hamel, two pillars of the Canadian jazz scene, the band has developed its own language, transcending genre and striving for creative freedom. The trio has released three albums: Eternal Cycle (2017), Wonderland (2019), and Walls Made of Glass (2022). She has received several awards for her work with her trio, including the “OPUS Award for Discovery of the Year” in 2020, the “CBC/Radio-Canada Jazz Award” in 2018 and the “François-Marcaurelle de la GMMQ Award” in 2017. MG’s compositions reflect her early development as a classical pianist as well as her background as a jazz pianist. In addition to her own projects, she has played with many musicians as an accompanist such as Christine Jensen, Andre White, Allison Au, Chet Doxas, Jim Doxas, and more.
