Ariane Racicot is a Montreal-based jazz pianist and composer who incorporates elements of classical, latin and metal music, creating her unique style. 


She first rose to prominence following the success of her rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody on Youtube in 2013. The video has reached up over 18 million views to date.


Ariane began her training as a classical pianist at the age of 6, before switching to jazz ten years later. She then went on to study at Cégep St-Laurent, University of Montreal and McGill, where she trained with Lorraine Desmarais, Luc Beaugrand, John Roney and Jean-Michel Pilc. 


In 2019, she founded her own trio with Antoine Rochefort on the electric bass and Guillaume Picard on the drums, which led to the release of her first album, Envolée, on the Multiple Chord Music label. Awarded Révélation Jazz Radio-Canada 2022-2023, Ariane was invited to open for Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal the following month.


Since then, Ariane has performed in festivals, cultural centers and jazz clubs in Quebec and Ontario, increasingly sold out. She was recently invited to open for John Scofield at the Quebec Jazz Festival in June, then was also offered carte blanche at Domaine Forget, where she took the opportunity to invite Christine Jensen and Paul Brochu (Uzeb) to play her music.


Very active on social networks, Ariane has more than 22,000 subscribers on her Youtube channel, where we can find several jazz compositions and interpretations.


Her playing is inspired by Hiromi Uehara, Tigran Hamasyan, Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett. Very passionate on stage, she captivates the audience with her emotionality, her energy and her generosity with the public.
