Born and raised in Germany and now residing in Newfoundland, Juno award-winning jazz pianist/composer Florian Hoefner draws from a myriad of influences that cumulate in his unique brand of modern jazz. Praised as a “composer-bandleader of insightful resolve” by the New York Times and a “harmonically daring pianist […] reaching toward new sonic territory” by Downbeat Magazine, Hoefner has released three albums that have received rave reviews around the globe. As a member of the Germany-based collective, Subtone, he has released four critically acclaimed albums, and his work as a sideman includes collaborating with guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. Since 2018, Hoefner has been working with his current sidemen, Andrew Downing on bass and Nick Fraser on drums, creating their 2019 award-winning debut album, First Spring. This album was nominated for a 2021 Juno (“Jazz Album of the Year: Group”), and their follow-up album, Desert Bloom, won the 2023 Juno Award for “Jazz Album of the Year: Group.”
