Jan Preston, the knockout boogie woogie pianist with the rich resonant voice, captures audiences with her mastery of boogie woogie and honky-tonk piano style.
She has recently been described in the press as ‘an inspirational and gifted pianist, performer and entertainer with grace, unbelievable dexterity, warmth and poignancy…..a remarkable evening that touched us all and will not soon be forgotten.’
Winner of 4 Best Female Blues and Blues Artist of the Year Awards, Jan plays festivals and concerts throughout Australia, NZ, and Europe, tours her own shows and writes music for films.
Her original piano composition was used as the Theme to ABC’s Australian Story for 6 years.
Known as Australia's Queen of the Boogie Piano, she has a reputation as a magnetic live performer, and her renditions of original piano boogie compositions and songs, as well as tunes such as the ‘Black and White Rag’ and ‘Bumble Boogie’ are astonishing.
Jan is currently working on a new show called ‘My Life As A Piano’.
