Myriad3 exploded onto the international jazz scene with the release of their debut album, Tell, in late 2012. This introduced the world to an exciting new trio whose sound is greater than the sum of its individual seriously-talented parts. The trio comprises pianist Chris Donnelly, bassist Dan Fortin, and drummer Ernesto Cervini. Tell earned Myriad3 impressive airplay in Canada and the U.S. (where it topped the CMJ charts for three weeks). It made the band a critic's favorite, and led to successful tours across Canada, the U.S. and Europe. So Where to next?
Onward and upwards is the answer to that query. Any talk of a sophomore slump or jinx is extinguished upon first listen to the second Myriad3 album, The Where. This is the sound of a group compelled to experiment and progress, not rest on their laurels. Known for their prowess in performance, they've been booked by some major jazz festivals across Canada in June and July. A second U.S tour is set for September, followed by their second foray into Europe.
Myriad3 is a band looking ahead, not back. Following their progress to who knows where is guaranteed to be a really exciting journey.
