Joel Lyssarides

Piano | Sweden

Joel Lyssarides is already one of the most listened-to artists in European jazz. The recordings of his Joel Lyssarides Trio have already been listened to over 50 million times on Spotify alone. For Lyssarides, the time is ripe to step onto the international stage. In January 2022, Joel released his first album 'Stay Now' on ACT Music. The huge listener numbers that Lyssarides' music has reached are not the result of any calculation, audience targeting or 'crowd-pleasing' on the pianist's part. He explains: “As happy as I am, that a lot of people obviously enjoy my music so much that they want to hear it repeatedly – the creative impulse always comes from within. Me and my piano, that's the center of my musical world.” And from this starting-point Joel Lyssarides‘ journey has already taken him in several interesting directions. To the stages of jazz clubs and festivals, into the studio as an arranger for ABBA's Benny Anderson and on tours with classical, blues and pop artists.

For Joel Lyssarides jazz is above all a language, a tool for uniquely personal expression. He composed the pieces for “Stay Now” in a remote house in the forest, a good half-hour outside Stockholm. And by preference at night, in silence, darkness and deep concentration. The atmosphere of this place is audibly reflected in the music, which is strongly influenced by space, sound and mood - reinforced by the highly concentrated, differentiated, subtle interplay of pianist Lyssarides with bassist Niklas Fernqvist and drummer Rasmus Blixt.
