Artist Information

Louis Soliano

Louis Soliano takes you on an exhilarating musical ride, spanning the repertoire from his career as a jazz musician in the Singapore music scene. Coming from a famed family of musicians, he embarked on a musical career in the 1960s that saw him tour the Far East and Europe, working with jazz luminaires such as Billy Daniels, Matt Monro, Max Bygraves, Kathy Kirby, Dakota Staton and many others. At the height of the Vietnam War he found himself backing artists like Jane Russell and Bette Davis as they entertained soldiers in the frontline.

 

Returning to Singapore in 1973, Soliano made waves with Louis Soliano Trio, playing commercial jazz in Singapore clubs and around Southeast Asia. He then played drums and percussion with the Singapore Broadcasting Corporation Orchestra for a decade and was a regular feature at the Singapore International Jazz Festival in the 1980s.

 

In 1997, Soliano received the Compass Artistic Excellence Award for his outstanding musicianship. He also received the Cultural Medallion in 2018 and the Compass Meritorius Award in 2019.
