Greg Percifield

Dueling Pianist

Hello.  My name is Greg Percifield. Welcome to my website!  You’re certainly welcome here, although I have to say that I’ve really built the site just for myself.  It’s a place for me to stay focused by organizing my thoughts, schedule, and goals.

I’ve found having a blog helps me to stay on track, stay motivated, and stay productive.  Hopefully, you’ll find something here that interests you.  If you do, please be sure to leave a comment.  I love talking with other people about similar interests!

Who am I?  In a nutshell, I’m a nut who enjoys music.  I study piano and voice every day.  I am a dueling pianist.  I enjoy my friends and family.  Sometimes there is alcohol involved, but I tend to regret that the next morning.

But I did say ‘in a nutshell.’  You’ll find more articles about singing, playing piano, and other things that interest me, throughout the site.  And if you’d like to know a bit more about me.  Here is an extended bio.

 

Album Review – Rihanna “Talk That Talk”

Since 2009, Barbados-born Rhianna has been in headlines a whole lot more often for her personal life than for her music. This isn't exactly a unique problem, but most pop-megastars on the world stage have the chops to back it up. Rhianna has had precisely one...

Album Review – Kate Bush “50 Words For Snow”

Nobody would ever accuse Kate Bush of being overly prolific. "50 Words For Snow" is only her 2nd album of original material in 17 years. The last time she released an album, Tori Amos was a young upstart. Florence Welch was 8 years old when "The Red Shoes" came out....

Album Review – Los Campesinos! “Hello Sadness”

Album Review – Drake “Take Care”
