Myriad3 was an accident. Chris, Dan, and Ernesto had never played together until a few substitutions and a twist of fate put them on stage together for the first time in late 2010. Since then, the trio has completed multiple tours of Canada, the US and Europe, including a performances at the Tokyo Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott’s International Jazz Piano Trio Festival, two tours of Canadian jazz festivals in 2014 and 2017, and a showcase performance at Jazzahead! in Bremen, Germany.
The band is a true collective. Each member acts simultaneously as a leader and as a sideman. They play mostly original music that features different aspects of jazz improvisation, ensemble performance and contemporary composition. The band has released 5 albums on Alma Records/Universal: Tell (2012); The Where (2014); Tell((Chip)) (2015); Moons (2016); and Vera (2018.) The Where was nominated for a 2015 Juno Award and a Sirius Radio XM Indie Music Award in 2015.
