Daniel Gassin I Pianist and Composer
Daniel Gassin is an Australian pianist and composer of Franco-American descent based in Paris.
Before relocating to France in 2013, Daniel garnered both local and international acclaim in his hometown of Melbourne, releasing three albums. He was a finalist in the Jazz Solo Piano Competition at the iconic Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007 and the Australian National Jazz Awards in 2013, and was nominated for the prestigious Freedman Fellowship in 2016.
Since his move to France, Daniel has added an international dimension to his career, as well as becoming an integral part of the Paris jazz scene. He became the first pianist to perform at Quincy Jones’ new club in Dubaï, and has toured widely, in particular across Europe and Africa.
Daniel’s new Crossover Band has performed at festivals in France, Ukraine and Romania, and in 2021 released its debut album ‘Change of Heart’.
