John Proulx (Set 1)
Performance of the Month

The jazz scene is abuzz about singer/pianist/composer John Proulx (pronounced "Proo"). His piano playing is hot and swinging, and his voice recalls the smooth, mellow sounds of a young Chet Baker. John is also a Grammy-winning composer. John's most recent collaboration includes a song co-written with Melissa Manchester for her recent CD, "You Gotta Love The Life", featuring Melissa along with Al Jarreau on vocals. John began his formal musical education at the age of 3 in Grand Rapids, MI on Suzuki violin, but quickly switched to classical piano lessons. His grandfather, Clyde Proulx, was a jazz guitarist with the Clyde McCoy Big Band, and introduced him to the world of jazz. Hooked on the freedom of improvisation, his education took him to Chicago to study at Roosevelt University’s Chicago School of Performing Arts. In 2001, John moved to Los Angeles to further his musical pursuits. He has emerged as a young talent on the Los Angeles jazz scene and loves the wide range of opportunities the city has to offer.
