SEPTEMBER 4: Ee Jeng trio at No Black Tie

Feat. Ee Jeng (keys), Daniel Foong (bass) and Arthur Kam (drums).

Hin Ee Jeng, born in Kuala Lumpur, is a contemporary pianist and keyboardist, who draws many genres in his learning of performing. In the age of 5, he started learning classical under Royal School of Music London and Yamaha Music School, Later, he continued his musical journey and pursued a degree under University Westminster in International College of music, where he was introduced to play contemporary music in general.

 

 

He credits his jazz exposure to Keith Jarrett and Michel Camilo. And instead of heading down the heady road of pure jazz, he has pushed the envelope with his love for all things contemporary, throwing in musical genres like neo-soul and hip hop to come up with a unique sound. But later on, he started to try new things by putting the synthesis sounds that can be well blend with the jazz settings.

Currently, he has his own project band trio. Besides that, he is also working and performing together with the John Thomas Trio and Junkofunc.
