Dominic John Marshall – Pianist/composer/beatmaker from Wiltshire, England. After studying classical piano for 10 years with his father Mark Marshall, Dominic was awarded the Alan Hawkshaw scholarship to study jazz at Leeds College of Music. By summer 2010 his graduation recital had won him the LCM Piano Prize.
After being accepted on to the Masters course at Conservatorium van Amsterdam in autumn of the same year, Dominic was lucky enough to receive guidance from the likes of Kurt Rosenwinkel, Brad Mehldau and Ambrose Akinmusire. His first trio CD The Oneness was recorded, self-produced and released in this time, Chris Parker of LondonJazz calling it ‘a striking debut’.
In April 2011 Dominic received The Countess of Munster Musical Trust Award for young British musicians of exceptional ability to finance the final year of his postgrad. After graduating Cum Laude in May 2012 with a 10, his second trio CD Icaros was released on the F-IRE Label (‘…certainly on a par with any other piano trio I’ve heard this year, if not better. A five-star offering if ever there was one.’ – JJ Wheeler). Icaros was awarded ‘Best International Jazz Album 2012’ by the highly-esteemed Japan-based blog TokyoJazzNotes.
