”I feel I’ve been influenced by every great talent I’ve been fortunate enough to work with - whether on the stage or in the studio. Every time I sit at the piano it seems I learn something new – that’s what keeps me coming back for more! It never ceases to amaze me the energy and fulfillment I receive from the creative process. Music fuels the fire inside of me” – Chris Nole
