Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys became an Internet sensation through their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. Since joining forces in 2011, they have created over 35, including their hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful, which earned The Guys a self-titled debut album in October 2012.
The group actually consists of only one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. Yet the other three -- Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart and Al van der Beek -- are equally significant members of the group. The Piano Guys spectacular videos have so far netted over 186 million YouTube views (500,000 new views/day) and garnered over 440,000 Facebook fans. The group has performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Today Show” and “Katie.” Their most recent video Mission Impossible featuring YouTube violin sensation Lindsey Stirling, continues to build momentum with over 1.5M views in one month.
