Jérémie Piazza is a drummer, guitarist, improviser and composer.

He was born in Le Havre in 1984.

As a kid, he was fascinated by the music of his uncle, the rock singer Little Bob, whom he often saw in concert.

At the age of five, he made a guitar out of cardboard. A red one. Later he starts to play the drums in a self-taught way by playing along all the discs that fall under his hand. 

He enters the Conservatory of Rouen in classical percussion and jazz classes. His taste for early music and contemporary music led him to obtain a Bachelor of Musicology in 2006.

His drumming  has its source in the music that inspires him, from Gospel to traditional Japanese music.

Throughout his career and his many encounters, his passion for improvisation grows, crossing musical codes and genres.

Jérémie Piazza is a member of the multidisciplinary artist collective Les Vibrants Défricheurs. 

He was drums teacher and accompanied dance classes in the Conservatory of Rouen between 2007 and 2015. He lives in Brussels since 2014.

He is part of Papanosh, a jazz quintet that is famous on jazz scenes around the world and collaborates with artists such as Roy Nathanson, Marc Ribot, Napoleon Maddox, Fidel Fourneyron and 

André Minvielle. Papanosh's records are acclaimed by critics (“CHOC” Jazz Magazine, “Indispensable” Jazz News, “ELU” Citizen Jazz ...).

He also played with artists such as Little Bob, Brad Scott, Ramsay Midwood, both in France and abroad.

You may have heard him play in big bands with Tous Dehors, La Compagnie Lubat, and now in Le Sacre

du Tympan by Fred Pallem or L'Orchestre National de Jazz by Frédéric Maurin.

He gives solo concerts, performing a totally improvised and intimate repertoire.
