„Romain Collin er framsýnt tónskáld, stórkostlegur jazzpíanisti og rísandi stjarna sem skín sannarlega skært í jazzheiminum“ skrifaði Jon Weber hjá National Public Radio í Bandaríkjunum. Collin fæddist í Frakklandi og býr nú New York en hann fluttist upphaflega til Bandaríkjanna til að sækja sér menntun við Berklee College of Music í Boston undir handleiðslu Dave Liebman og Joe Lovano meðal annarra.

Árið 2007 útskrifaðist Romain Collin frá hinum virta skóla „Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz“ þar sem hann hlaut fullan námsstyrk sem píanóleikari í hljómsveit sem var sérstaklega sett saman af Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter og Terence Blanchard. Á þessum árum fór Collin í tónleikaferðalög með Hancock og Shorter víða um heim auk þess sem hann spilaði með mönnum eins og Marcus Miller, Jimmy Heath og Terence Blanchard. Síðan þá hefur hann numið undir handleiðslu Larry Goldings, Russell Ferrante, Ron Carter, Charlie Haden, Mulgrew Miller og Wynton Marsalis.

Romain Collin hefur gefið út fjórar plötur sem allar hafa hlotið einróma lof gagnrýnenda. Samhliða því að þróa sinn eigin sólóferil leiðir hann tríó ásamt munnhörpusnillingnum Gregoire Maret og gítarleikaranum Bill Frisell en plata þeirra Americana kom út árið 2019. Auk þess er hann iðinn við kolann sem meðspilari á tónleikum og upptökum með fólki á borð við Mike Stern, John McLaughlin, Christian McBride, Lauryn Hill og Kurt Rosenwinkel.

Þetta eru tónleikar sem enginn vill missa af.

Romain Collin opens his Hannesarholt concert series with a solo piano performance. He will interpret an intimate book of songs, with repertoire ranging from American Jazz Standards to original compositions and current pop hits

Described by NPR as “a visionary composer, an extraordinary jazz pianist and a very bright young rising star in the jazz world”, and touted by the Boston Globe as being “among the leading lights of a new breed of jazz players”, Romain Collin continues to develop “a highly personal and contemporary vision” (A Blog Supreme, NPR), blurring the lines between virtuosic improvisation, sound designing, indie rock and classical music. Originally born in France and now based in New York City, Collin came to the US to attend Berklee College of Music on a scholarship, where he majored in Music Synthesis and studied performance with the likes of Dave Liebman and Joe Lovano. In 2007, Romain graduated from the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz where he held a Full Scholarship. During this time, Collin had the opportunity to tour internationally with Hancock and Shorter and studied with the likes of Larry Goldings, Ron Carter, Charlie Haden and Wynton Marsalis. While furthering his career as a leader, Collin continues to explore various musical genres as a sideman, performing and/or recording alongside artists such as Bill Frisell, Mike Stern, John McLaughlin, Christian McBride and Lauryn Hill.
