Peter Cincotti

Pop/jazz pianist and singer Peter Cincotti was born in the Park Avenue apartment of his parents. He displayed a talent for music after being given a toy piano by his grandmother at age three, and when he was four he began taking piano lessons. At seven, he attracted the attention of Harry Connick, Jr., who had him sit in at a show at Bally's Grand in Atlantic City, NJ. He studied classical piano at the Manhattan School of Music and studied jazz piano privately with Ellis Marsalis, among other teachers. At 12, he turned professional and began playing in clubs in New York. He began singing to his own accompaniment in 1999. That summer, he toured with Connick Jr. In 2000, he appeared at the Montreux Jazz Festival, winning a prize in a piano competition. In 2001, he performed in the off-Broadway production of Our Sinatra. That year, he graduated from the Horace Mann School and, in the fall, enrolled as a freshman at Columbia University. In February 2002, at 18, he became the youngest performer to headline at the prestigious Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel in New York. He was signed to Concord Records, and his self-titled debut album, produced by Phil Ramone, was released in March 2003. His sophomore effort, On the Moon debuted at number two on Billboard's Jazz Charts in late 2004. The album earned Cincotti his first gold record in France and was supported by a succesful worldwide tour. Since that time, he has continued to record, releasing Goodbye Philadelphia in 2007. Late that year it was announced a new album, East of Angel Town, would be released in early 2008. The album was recorded in part with legendary producer David Foster.
