Biography

Hiromi Uehara - known professionally by her first name - is a jazz pianist who has achieved international success playing with established artists as well as her own releases. Born on March 26, 1979, in the coastal city of Hamamatsu on the Japanese island of Honshu, she took piano lessons from the age of six and studied at the Yamaha School of Music. After a couple of years writing jingles for Japanese firms, she moved to America in 1999 and graduated from Boston's Berklee College of Music. A teacher there - jazz bassist named Richard Evans - introduced her to pianist and bandleader Ahmad Jamal and they co-produced her debut album Another Mind (2003), which was followed a year later by the album Brain (2004). Her third album Spiral went to number 31 on the Jazz Chart in 2006. She then recorded two albums with her band Sonicbloom: Time Control (2007) and Beyond Standard (2008). In 2009, she worked with Chick Corea on a two-disc live album Duet and on Stanley Clarke's 2010 album The Stanley Clarke Band, which won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. Hiromi’s third solo album, Place to Be, was released in 2009 and reached number 24 on Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart. She formed The Trio Project with bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips and released the albums Voice (2011), Move (2012), Alive (2014), and Spark (2015), which reached number 1 on the Jazz Albums chart. She also found time to collaborate on recordings by the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, Akiko Yano, and Kelly Peterson. Live in Montreal, her collaboration with harpist Edmar Castañeda, reached number 15 in 2017. Hiromi returned to her solo career with the album Spectrum (2019) before forming The Piano Quinet and issuing the album Silver Lining Suite in 2021. She formed a new ensemble called Hiromi’s Sonicwonder and released the album Sonicwonderland in 2023.
