Pop/jazz pianist and singer Peter Cincotti displayed a talent for music after being given a toy piano by his grandmother at age three. 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. At 12, he turned professional and began playing in clubs in New York. He began singing to his own accompaniment in 1999. He was signed to Concord Records, and his self-titled debut album, produced by Phil Ramone, was released in March 2003. ~ William Ruhlmann
