Influences: Elton John, Marc Cohn, Sting, Don Henley, U2, Prince, Van Morrison
Since I was about 7 when I first tinkering on the piano. Semi pro experience for 20 years. I have played as lead vocalist and guitarist in a country band, and as lead vocalist and pianist in a band playing music typical of Sting (jazz-rock influenced). I have extensive experience playing weddings and similar gigs. My warm, resonant and steady voice is my strength, naturally Bass (D2 to E4) but with falsetto extending to D5 when needed. I have written many songs and also some classical pieces for piano (impressionist style). You can best describe my playing style as similar to Elton John, i am not overtly jazzy. My solo repertoire is over 200 songs and I can improvise many others with chord progressions typical of popular pieces. I sing best tunes from Prince, Elton john, Billy Joel, Sting, the Stones, the Beatles, Van Morrison, Joshua Kadison, John Legend...i think you get the picture.
