Piano Guys - Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson discuss mixing careers & family life / billboard

Bookmark and Share

John Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson of the pop/classical collective THE PIANO GUYS perform and discuss mixing their careers with family life "I think we could write a book on serendipity, I think we really can. Just all the way through: how we met, how we came together, the tunes we put out and the ideas that come." That's John Schmidt, a, well, piano guy, who, along with partner Steven Sharp Nelson (a cello guy …), recently visited Billboard's New York studios. Together the duo forms the backbone of the Piano Guys, a collective from Utah that's built an audience of more than 1.75 million on YouTube – a bigger following on the platform than Justin Timberlake or Jennifer Lopez.
