Australian-British pianist Jayson Gillham has emerged as one of the finest pianists of his generation. Internationally regarded for his compelling performances, Jayson has received numerous awards and prizes reaching the finals of some of the world's leading piano competitions including Leeds, Van Cliburn, and the Chopin Competition. In June 2014, Jayson was awarded First Prize in the Montreal International Music Competition. His outstanding performance of Beethoven Piano Concerto No.4 was described in the Huffington Post as being performed ‘with such streamlined patrician elegance that he took home the 1st Prize and a string of engagements to follow' and The Montreal Gazette reported that ‘Jayson Gillham earned his win with absorbing and relentless elegance'.

Jayson now performs across the globe with recent and future highlights including concerto engagements with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Halle Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall, Melbourne and Queensland Symphony Orchestras, Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, Orchestra Filarmonica Marchigiana and Wuhan Philharmonic. In recital, Jayson performs at some of the world's most prestigious venues including the Wigmore Hall and Louvre Auditorium amongst others.

A graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, where he studied with Leah Horwitz, Jayson relocated to London in 2007 to pursue a Master's degree at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) with Christopher Elton. In 2012 Jayson was named Commonwealth Musician of the Year and Gold Medalist of the Royal Over-Seas League 60th Annual Music Competition. Jayson is the Cultural Ambassador of the Hearts for Africa (Amani) Foundation, an NGO which empowers local people to overcome poverty in rural central Tanzania.
