About The Event
Kyle Roussel is a dynamic example of a modern New Orleans musician forging his own path while collaborating with a variety of musical masters. A graduate of the famed New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and the University of New Orleans began playing the piano at age nine; studying classical music before moving on to perform in church and explore jazz in his teenage years.
These days, Kyle is equally adept in the worlds of jazz, classical, funk, gospel, rhythm and blues, and rock- his diverse influences shaping his personal musical identity and providing inspiration at every turn. Kyle currently performs all around the US, with other engagements taking him all over Europe, Asia, South America, Australia, and Africa with stalwarts such as The Headhunters, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irma Thomas, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Christian Scott, Donald Harrison Jr., Delfeayo Marsalis, John Boutte, Kermit Ruffins, Shannon Powell, Roland Guerin, Bonerama, Glen David Andrews, Mia Borders, Khris Royal and Dark Matter, and Topsy Chapman. One thing is clear to anyone who is paying attention: Kyle Roussel has only just begun to leave his mark on the world of music. Stay tuned.
