The Piano Guys continue their fairytale story of turning a musical hobby and friendship into an extremely successful worldwide career. The four talented dads from Utah have climbed the Great Wall of China for their craft, landed atop Billboard charts, sold out tour dates around the world, accrued a massive social media following and scored YouTube viewership at 730 million-plus views. On November 13, they reach a new career milestone, releasing their first ever live album, The Piano Guys – Live! (Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks). The record is live audio from The Piano Guys’ sold out performance at the world’s most famous concert hall, Carnegie Hall in New York City.

“Playing Carnegie’s stage was an unbelievable experience for us,” says Steven Sharp Nelson. “As we stepped out onto the same wood that has supported the feet of so many “Greats” we were filled with an amalgam of awe, intimidation, and gratitude. And to share the stage with artists we love and admire – Peter Hollens, Julie Nelson and Alex Boye was sublime… We’re thrilled we had the opportunity to record this experience and give it back to everyone that made this journey possible.”

The audio recording from Carnegie Hall features live versions of fan favorites like “Let It Go,” and “What Makes You Beautiful,” plus special arrangements featuring guests like Peter Hollens, Julie Nelson (Steven’s wife) and Alex Boye. TPG’s very own Al van der Beek makes his vocal debut on a gorgeous rendition of “Father’s Eyes.”
