The Sledge has enabled me with unprecedented flexibility in shaping new sounds on the fly, while maintaining all of the versatility only a digital board can offer. It has quickly become one of the centerpieces of my creation process both on tour and in the studio.
Pier Luigi Salami is a pianist, keyboardist, composer, and producer.
A dedicated leader of original projects such as the modern jazz ensemble PLS.trio, and an in-demand session musician both in studio and on the road, Pier's versatility can be appreciated in the music he writes as well as the wide range of projects he is called to be a part of. Spanning from jazz to hip/hop, electronic music, and everything in between, his recent studio, touring, and writing credits include such artists as Chris Brown, Tyga, Emel Mathlouthi, Amy Vachal, and Chloe Angelides.
Born in the north of Italy in the late 80s, Pier moved to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, from which he graduated with honors in 2010. Most recently he was a finalist in the solo instrumental section of the 2015 "Made In NY" Jazz competition. His PLS.trio debut release "East River" received a nomination for both Best Debut and New Release at the 2015 NPR Jazz Critic Poll, and a 5-star review on All About Jazz. Pier currently lives, records, and plays in New York when not on the road.
