While Rhythm Earthsong's piano career is measured in decades—four of them, to be exact—his love for the instrument can only be measured in centuries. In the time since he first started tickling the ivory at the age of six, he's immersed himself in more than 300 years of piano history, listening and playing everything from Bach and Beethoven to Bill Evans and Dave Brubeck. After graduating from piano conservatory, he took to tuning and repairing pianos in his twenties, calibrating the hammers and replacing the strings on every kind of piano imaginable, except those cartoonishly suspended over busy city sidewalks. Along the path between these early projects and his current role as the sole proprietor of Earthsong Piano, he's found himself in the recording dens and on stages alongside some famous clients, including Elton John, Count Basie, Andre-Michel Schub, and Dave Brubeck.
