Noé Huchard is emerging as one of the top young voices in Jazz piano.
Born in 1999 in the Parisian suburbs, he began the piano with classical music at the age of 4. Noe then developed very soon his interest to other music, specially Jazz and improvised music thanks to his father (the french drummer Stéphane Huchard). He decided in his early teens to practice deeply Jazz music along with his classical training.

After studying with a lot of nationally renowned Jazz musicians at the Conservatory of Val Maubuée and the Regional Conservatory of Paris, Noé joined the Jazz Program at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (National Superior Music and Dance Conservatory of Paris) in 2017, graduating four years later with a Master's Degree (with the highest honors).
Noé has studied with Riccardo Del Fra, Fred Hersch, Hervé Sellin, François Théberge, Eric Legnini among others.

Since the age of 17, Noé has been very present on the French and European scene and has performed in numerous festivals and venues: Jazz in Marciac, Jazz at Vienne, Jazz at Ramatuelle, International Piano Festival of La Roque d'Anthéron, Marseille Jazz des Cinq Continents, Saveurs Jazz Festival, Jazz au Palais (Albi), Salle Cortot, Radio France Studio 104, Théâtre du Châtelet, Le Bal Blomet, Sunset-Sunside, Le Duc des Lombards…
He has also traveled a lot and has been able to tour and perform in Mexico (Zacatecas Festival, Feria San Marco de Aguascalientes, Encuentro Nacional de Jazz Guadalajara), Argentina (diVino International Music Festival), New York City (Consulate General of France), Reunion island (Opus Pocus Festival), Guadeloupe Islands (Les Nuits Caraïbes), Italy (Zafferana Jazz Festival), Germany (Classical Beat Festival), Belgium (Sounds Jazz Club), Luxembourg (CAPE Ettelbruck), Switzerland (Chorus Jazz Club)…

As a leader, he released his debut album "Song for" in 2020, recorded in a trio and solo setting, and mixing original compositions with jazz standards and songs from the Great American Songbook. This record has been widely acclaimed by the press and the French public. He regularly performs as a leader in trio or solo piano.

Among the prizes and awards, Noé has received the First Prize at Chorus Lausanne International Jazz piano competition 2021 (under the honorary presidency of Martial Solal), a pre-nomination at "Les Victoires du Jazz 2020" (French Grammys) for Best New Artist, the "Young Pianist Award 2019", the André Boisseaux Prize 2018 (sponsoring a first album for a young artist), a "Revelation" review in Jazz Magazine, a "3F" review in Télérama magazine…

Alongside his activity as a pianist, his rigorous study of writing and composition techniques at the Paris Conservatory will lead him to write for all kinds of ensembles, from duos to Big Bands, up to the writing of a piece, "Blueberry", for Symphony Orchestra and a Jazz Rhythm section in March 2021.
His willingness to find his voice between his French and European identity and his passion for African-American music makes Noé's playing and writing truly special.

Noé is also a passionate pedagogue who is regularly teaching private lessons to young pianists and musicians.

As a sideman, Noé Huchard is part of the Eric Le Lann Quartet, Cecil L. Recchia & the Gumbo, Pierre Boussaguet & Géraud Portal Quartet, Fabien Mary Quartet, Zoot Collectif, Sandro Zerafa Quartet (with Yoni Zelnik & Francesco Ciniglio), Noé Codjia & Neil Saidi Quintet and performs regularly with Riccardo Del Fra's band (featuring Kurt Rosenwinkel), Minino Garay Quartet, Moutin Factory Quintet, The Amazing Keystone Big Band, Nicolas Folmer's band, Pierre Bertrand "Caja Negra", Paris Jazz Sessions…

"Noé is part of this new generation of musicians that has already incorporated lots of important elements of the Jazz language, tradition and legacy.
I've followed his great evolution since his youth. He already has everything: originality, a great sense of time and an ability to adapt with a disconcerting musicianship."
