Jon Batiste is a globally celebrated musician, educator, current bandleader of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and television personality whose musical skill, artistic vision and exuberant charisma make him a triple threat with unlimited potential. Recognized for his originality, jaw-dropping talent and dapper sense of style, Jon performs wide-ranging material from commanding the piano with virtuosic skill, to soulfully crooning, to wailing on the “harmonaboard” (a kind of harmonica and keyboard), to curating unique “social music” experiences all over the world. Born into a long lineage of Louisiana musicians, Batiste eventually went on to receive both his undergraduate and master’s degrees in piano from the Juilliard School and formed his band, Stay Human.
