Soon after an LDS rapper beat out stars like Drake, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar by landing third on the iTunes hip-hop charts, another LDS artist has topped the iTunes charts. Pianist Jason Lyle Black has come in at no. 1 for his debut album, Piano Preludes, on the New Age charts.
An award-winning concert pianist, a composer, an arranger, a stage performer, a popular YouTuber, and a bit of a comedian, Black does it all. Known as the "Backwards Piano Man," his often comedic videos have garnered over 30 million views on YouTube and even earned him a spot on the Ellen show.
Black recently landed a record deal with Stone Angel Music, and his debut album was released May 6.
Check out this stunning song, "Winter's Passing," from Black's no. 1 album, Piano Preludes.
