Considered by many to be the most innovative and uplifting band on the scene today, Batiste and his band have one of the most musical and entertaining live shows today and are revered for their unique approach blending many genres to create a musical mash-up that they call "social music."

Jon Batiste and Stay Human's new album 'Social Music' is out  (Razor & Tie), and critics from the The New York Times to NPR to Esquire are giving Batiste the highest praise.

"Although heavily rooted in jazz, ‘Social Music’ is not about any particular musical tradition more than it is about the intent of the music itself. The purpose of this music is to bring people together from all walks of life by creating a montage of many different music traditions and playing it with the spirit of inclusiveness," says Jon Batiste.

With his soulful voice, virtuosic piano chops and dapper sense of style, Jon Batiste has ignited the music scene. Although he comes from a renowned lineage of New Orleans musicians in his family, over the last decade he has forged his own artistic path by indelibly fusing himself within the fabric of New York City culture. At 26, Jon is the Artistic Director At Large of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and has also received a Masters Degree from the Juilliard School for piano. Batiste brings to mind a young Ray Charles on 'Social Music' as he reinterprets America's richest musical traditions through a contemporary lens.

Deeply rooted in the musical traditions of his native New Orleans, where he grew up playing with his family’s well-known band, pianist/harmonaboardist Jon Batiste has developed a uniquely current, uplifting, and playful brand of jazz that integrates his classical Juilliard training with contemporary mainstream sounds. He is currently touring with his band, Stay Human, whose mission is to bring the joy of jazz to the masses, transforming each space they play by breaking down the barriers between audience and performer, and inviting people to experience the music as they never thought it could be played. They released their first studio album, Social Music, in October 2013.
