Band/artist history
I began to play the piano in at age five. Born and raised walking distance from Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, I began studying jazz at the New England Conservatory of Music Preparatory School in September, 1993. Now, over eleven years later, music continues to play an important role in my life.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I play regularly in the metropolitan Washington, DC, area. Not all gigs are public performances; in addition to concerts and private functions, I also play at a few restaurants around town. I love to perform live, and try to do so any chance I get.
Your musical influences
Most of my influences lie within the jazz idiom. Pianists that have had the greatest influence on me are Bud Powell, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Kenny Kirkland, and most recently, Robert Glasper and Gene Harris. As far as non-pianists go, I get a lot out of listening to (aside from the obvious like Miles Davis and John Coltrane) Kenny Garrett, Chris Potter, Maria Schneider, and Stefon Harris.
What equipment do you use?
My Primary Keyboard is my Clavia-Nord Stage 88, and I run it through a Motion Sound KP-200S amplifier. I also own a Kurzweil PC-88mx, a Korg MicroKorg Synth/Vocoder, and a Fender Rhodes Suitcase Piano. For fun, I own A Roland AX-1 Keytar but I try not to be seen in public with it.
