Sue Downs Mix Tape On Yamaha's Piano Radio!

Sue Downs is called "First Lady of the Disklavier" and with good reason. I think it's safe to say that Sue is the premier Disklavier specialist, having performed more concerts, made more videos, and made more appearances on behalf of the Disklavier than any other artist. Her playing is sublime, and as a gifted singer, she is truly a double threat.

With more than 20 PianoSoft collections to her name, Sue Downs is one of the most prolific Disklavier recording artists, as well as one of the most talented. Whether, you're interested in sacred music, standards, or jazz, you're certain to find a Sue Downs recording to suit your mood.

While many people probably think of Sue as a jazz pianist(which she is), her skills are extremely diverse. She is equally proficient in the Classics, Gospel, Jazz – well, just about Anything. Sue started her piano studies at the age of three, and her early studies focused on Classical music. She was a scholarship student at the Curtis Institute, and those Classical roots have their imprint on her excellent pop/jazz performances. She has flawless technique and phrasing and the magnificent feel of a seasoned jazz pianist.

We are proud to announce the brand new Sue Downs Mix Tape Channel on Yamaha's Piano Radio. Now you can experience more than 8 full hours of the First Lady Of Disklavier's best work, 24 hours a day, seven days a week! Sue says it all herself in this on stage inteview below:
