As I get closer to the studio recording session, I get more and more excited about what these incredible musicians will bring to the table. I am excited to present to you our amazing pianist: Addison Frei.
At his relatively young age, Addison has accomplished much. He has won many awards for his compositions and playing, taken part in various prestigious workshops, and been featured as a guest artist at multiple universities. The truth is, nice as they are, I don't need to read about all those things to know how deeply talented Addison is, because I feel it every time I get to play with him. He is influenced by so many angles on music that you never know where he's going to go with his solos, and it's always a thrill to see where he will take you. A truly gifted musician, Addison is an incredibly fun guy to work with. Addison's trio, AMP Trio, has performed all over the country and is an up-and-coming group in the musical landscape of today.
But my favorite thing about Addison is his quality of character and his level of serious artistry. You see, he not only plays piano with skill, but with emotional depth and integrity.
