Anomalie
Anomalie
Anomalie is the live electronic project of Nicolas Dupuis, a classically trained keyboardist and producer based in Montreal, QC.

After the release of his style-defining project Metropole in June 2017, Anomalie will release the highly anticipated follow-up, Metropole Part II, on Fri Oct 5th, 2018, completing his EP series inspired by the feelings evoked by his hometown of Montreal.

While Anomalie is an independent artist, his music has grown to international recognition and has set the stage to tour the world as ‘Anomalie Live,’ his 4-piece band recreating his music production on stage with energy-driven arrangements and original interpretations. His shows have included a sold-out North American tour, festivals such as Summercamp, Montreal Jazz Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, and opening slots for Kamasi Washington and the Glitch Mob.

His independent success is a result of both acclaims from international music blogs and the reach of his self-made viral videos showcasing Metropole’s music and his own keyboard skills. The videos have reached millions of views worldwide and earned praise and attention from notable musicians such as Charlie Puth, Austin Mahone, FKJ, Tom Misch, Bruno Major, Thundercat, Electro Deluxe, Lido, Big Wild, Big Gigantic, and more.

For Dupuis, music has been in his blood since an early age, leading to more than 18 years of experience studying classical and jazz piano performance. This led him to become the first person to be awarded the Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestre Métropolitain, Rotterdams Philharmonisch) excellence grant in 2012. Anomalie also has been a guest instructor at Berklee School of Music in Boston and the Nexus Institute in the UK.

Rob started taking classical piano lessons at age 5, eventually coming to study under Ida Trebecka and playing competitively throughout middle and high school. While studying Biology at Cornell University, Rob was exposed to and particularly intrigued by jazz and hip-hop, and worked for several years to form a unique musical voice colored by these influences.

Rob began a doctorate degree in 2016, but withdrew shortly after to pursue music full time. Since then, Rob has worked and performed with a wide variety of artists including Tom Misch, Masego, ELEW, MonoNeon, and many others. Rob currently resides in Los Angeles, California, doing work as a keyboardist, composer, producer, and teacher.

Ian Ewing
Ian grew up a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who has always been hungry to create musical ideas of his own. Upon entering college, he fell in love with hip hop and the history behind it. This was his gateway into electronic beat production where he finds himself today, as he strives to create ambient compositions of sample-based sounds blended with his own instrumentation. While he claims to be “the official soundtrack of hummus everywhere”, this has yet to be confirmed.
