Artist Feature: Jerry Impini

We’ve been giving Jerry Impini’s latest track “Good Time Woman” a lot of airplay on Phoenix FM recently – and we caught up with Jerry to talk about his love of music and his inspirations.

When did you start to develop a passion for music?

From a very early age. I took classical piano lessons when I was 6 at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music in New York, auditioned and was accepted as a sophomore at Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music and the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center in New York City when I was 15.

Where did this lead to?

I was the keyboardist for the “Strangleweed 2006” live shows on Channel 11 Morning News in Dallas, Texas and was contracted with the Armed Forces Entertainment division of the U.S. Military whom we have performed live for in Singapore and on the island of Diego Garcia.

We eventually ended opening for the Sony Music band “The Romantics” in Corpus Christi, Texas where I also performed live for and did session work for the Josh Davis Band on a few of the tracks on the album which charted respectably well on the Texas Music Charts.

At one point I was also a full time dueling piano player nationally in the the U.S. for dueling piano venues. Some of my dueling piano experiences while on the road will reflect on an upcoming track from my next Spinnup/Universal Music release: (Vol. 2) which should be due to arrive sometime next month.

Which artists did you listen to while growing up?

I had an older brother that would always play old Elton John, Pink Floyd, and Beatles records when I was just around 5 years old. That and the music of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and Led Zeppelin moved me in such a way that it really struck a nerve deep within me while awakening a creative side of me that I gradually became more and more receptive to over the years.

What music have you recorded and released to date?

Lady’s Freaky (on Distrokid), Lose This Love, New Life, and Good Time Woman (on Spinnup/Universal), Been Bad For Me – a pre-release of a song I wrote that is actually a new music genre I created called “dueling piano rock”. You can check out the story behind it on Bandcamp which is right now exclusively available for pre-order but only for a limited time.

How would you describe your sound?

I suppose the best way to describe my music is that it would consist of a series of emotions that I’ve had in my personal life that I feel we all have experienced in our personal lives as well at one time or another which people can feel a connection with or can relate to in some way which in the end I believe is what makes us all human.

Who would your dream collaboration be with?

I love and appreciate all genres of music that illicit emotion regardless of where or who it comes from. My dream collaboration would most definitely be with Rock Guitar Legend Eric Clapton or the Rolling Stones.

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to possibly expand on the new music genre I created called “dueling piano rock” through my new dueling piano song “Been Bad For Me” and write more originals centred around 2 pianos. We’ll see where it leads.

As well as his Bandcamp page, you can find Jerry on Spotify and YouTube too.
