“British composer/pianist Simon Lasky is the real deal.”

— Judy Carmichael
host of U.S NPR’s weekly ‘Jazz Inspired’ show

Award winning artist

Recipient of a 2019 Fellowship to study jazz composition with Chuck Owen at the University of South Florida, and winner of the 2018 British Composer Award for ‘Jazz Composition for Small Ensemble, Simon Lasky juggles a busy career as a composer, pianist, NPR jazz host and recording artist on both sides of the Atlantic.

“Lasky has a classical grounding and it shows but he also understands jazz and there is a freshness to this music which is lacking in many contemporaries.” 

— Sammy Stein, Kind Of Jazz


“Uplifting improvisational grooves, classy chops and exotic percussion, there’s no shortage of beautifully striking moments.”
