Peter Cincotti Releases New Album

Singer-songwriter-pianist Peter Cincotti released East Of Angel Town this week via Warner Bros. East Of Angel Town marks 25-year-old Cincotti's first work of all original material, and explores musical styles that blend pop, rock, blues, funk and jazz. Cincotti's percussive piano playing and rich vocals infuse each song with a startling energy. The realization of East Of Angel Town began when Cincotti teamed up with noted producer and 14-time Grammy winner David Foster, producer Humberto Gatica and producer / sound designer Jochem van der Saag to create a dynamic sound that is simultaneously classic and modern.

Cincotti has been combining the old and new ever since he burst onto the scene at the age of 19 when his self-titled debut album filled with stellar interpretations of jazz standards led him to become the youngest musician ever to claim the top spot on Billboard's Jazz chart. Following his breakout success, The New York Times called him "one of the most promising singer-pianists of the next generation."
