Leonieke Scheuble started to play piano after being inspired by “Ray,” a movie based on the life of Ray Charles. Without any prior musical training, she began to spend great lengths of time at the piano creating pieces that were rhythmically interesting and compositionally balanced. She was 5 or 6 at the time. At age 7, Leonieke recorded a handful of pieces including two of her own compositions. In October of 2013, Leonieke was one of two musicians featured for an hour long special called “The Future of Jazz” over radio station WBGO. In September 2015, Leonieke was named “Best Up and Coming Young Artist”- Hothouse NYC Fans Decision Awards. Most recently, she was honored to be selected by Carnegie Hall/Weill Music Institute as an alternate musician for their 2018 NYO JAZZ season. She can be seen performing regularly as a featured artist or leading her trio at many of New York and New Jersey’s finest jazz venues.
