Born in Denver, Colorado, Shamie Royston, pianist, composer and educator is a unique musician in her own way. She received her Master’s Degree in Music Composition where she won top honors. Most of her acclaim has been noted in her musical compositions as well as her exquisite ability to teach young musicians ranging from elementary school to the college level. She has been known to be one of the top educators in her field at previous educational institutions, and has been honored with awards for her teaching skills. She has given clinics and adjudicated high school and college jazz festivals and has been a clinician for top ensembles. But now Shamie Royston is an up and coming pianist in the New York City jazz scene.

She has an exquisite way of playing the piano, and her compositions are appreciated by many jazz listeners. She has written compositions for trumpeter, Sean Jones, the all women’s group, Sage, and saxophonist, Tia Fuller. Shamie was commissioned by the Penfield School District in New York to arrange an orchestra and big band piece of her original compositions.

Since moving to New Jersey, she has been a steady member of the Tia Fuller Quartet, and has played with many other great artists such as Christian McBride, Lonnie Plaxico, Ron Miles, Ralph Peterson, John Pattuci, Terri Lyne Carrington, Sean Jones and many others. She has also recorded with the Tia Fuller Quartet, and many others. She has toured Europe and the United States with her fiery, yet soulful piano playing and has played at many of the top jazz venues and festivals in the world.

Shamie’s debut CD entitled “Portraits” was released in March 2012, where her compositions and performance are to the highest degree. “She continues to be a leading force and a new voice in the jazz world.”
