Since I was a baby, notable musicians would visit the house on occasion, and play and sing. I've seen a lot of performances- I don't recall the first one.
What gear do you use?
I have a Petrof upright grand. I love it. It's my best friend.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Mostly Gospel music, and the golden oldies. Does anyone remember record players? My family had one. So I listen to the records my parents had. Once I became a teenager, I was into my classical piano studies...and listening to Simon and Garfunkel when everyone else was wild about Nirvana.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I have a band. They are called "The Boys On Brill" and they are exceptional.

You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Only one album for an extended period of time...kill me now.
