Our sister publication Keyboard Magazine says, “Calling Jordan Rudess a legend is an understatement.” The keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist for platinum-selling, Grammy nominated band Dream Theater has also been voted the “Best Keyboardist of All Time” in certain polls. Not only a virtuoso musician, Jordan Rudess is also a composer, advocate for alternative musical controllers, and a music app developer through his company Wizdom Music.
Now Rudess has embarked on a solo piano tour titled From Bach to Rock: A Musician’s Journey through the U.S. West Coast and Europe. The tour wraps its American leg tonight in Seattle before landing in Europe from March 30 through mid-April, 2018.
Rudess’ solo concert travels via pinao through his personal musical evolution – from a young Juilliard piano prodigy destined for a classical music career to a metamorphosis into a keyboard rock-star phenomenon.
“Jordan Rudess has journeyed from the depths of tradition to the ever-expanding outer limits of musical possibility, inviting listeners along for the ride. The results are, unsurprisingly, consistently beyond world-class.” The Musical Melting Pot

ABOUT JORDAN RUDESS
Voted "Best Keyboardist of All Time" (Music Radar Magazine), Jordan Rudess is best known as the keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire for platinum-selling Grammy- nominated prog rock band, Dream Theater. He trained at the world-renowned Juilliard School of Music, where he first studied as a child prodigy at age nine. As a teen, he defected to synthesizers in a classic act of rock ’n’ roll rebellion. In 1994, Keyboard readers voted him “best new talent,” and since then has become the universally acknowledged heir to the shredding throne of such prog-rock royalty as Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman. He is renowned for his unique fusion of classical technique and influences with rock sensibilities.
In addition to playing in Dream Theater, Jordan has worked with a wide range of artists including David Bowie, Jan Hammer, Enrique Iglesias, the Paul Winter Consort, Annie Haslam, LMR, his side project with Tony Levin and Marco Minneman, Liquid Tension Experiment, Steven Wilson, Aviv Geffen, the Dixie Dregs, Rod Morgenstein, and Tony Williams, among others. Jordan’s interest in state-of-the-art keyboard controllers and music apps are another area of his career in which he has achieved success. Jordan owns the successful App development company Wizdom Music, creators of award-winning apps such as MorphWiz, SampleWiz, and Geo Synthesizer. Wizdom Music’s latest app, GeoShred, was created in collaboration with moForte, founding members of Stanford University’s Sondius team.
