Brislin Touring with Renaissance this Spring
DOVER, NJ, February 16, 2017 - This February, Casio America, Inc., a leading innovator of electronic music instruments, is pleased to spotlight the multi-talented Tom Brislin as part of its Artist Program. Casio’s Artist Program looks to support both aspiring and established musicians by providing the best tools and technology available, allowing them to easily fulfill their love and passion for music.New Jersey native Brislin is an award-winning musician, composer, and producer that grew up playing the piano and knew from a very young age that he wanted to pursue music. Influenced by his older siblings' classic rock record collections and his love for various music styles including pop, classical, jazz, progressive and indie, he would eventually find himself performing in all of these genres. He has toured and recorded with several notable rock and pop artists including Yes, Meat Loaf and Debbie Harry of Blondie. However, this spring he will be taking on the role of an entire orchestra as the keyboardist for the classic progressive rock band Renaissance as they tour Brazil. “Casio has such tremendous support for artists and is really great at making equipment that we can use in the real world," said Brislin. “For instance, the Priva PX-5Shas traveled with me on multiple tours, as it is extremely portable and ideal for the road. The entire Privia line of digital keyboards comes with an incredible feel and sound. They are just all around amazing keyboards." Brislin who has been working and performing with Casio since 2007 is also a Senior Correspondent for Keyboard Magazine and has co-founded, Accessing Music Promoting Success (AMPS). AMPS is a program that enables individuals with disabilities to make music using the latest advances in technology in a group setting regardless of their skill or ability levels. “Casio is very proud to be a part of a musical career as diverse and creative as Tom’s," said Stephen Schmidt, Vice President of Casio’s Electronic Musical Instrument division. “All of the artists featured in our Artist Program bring their own unique talents and passions to the industry and Casio is thrilled to be able to take part in their musical accomplishments." Brislin is part of the current roster of Casio artists including Eldar Djangirov, Jonatha Brooke, Kyle Morrison, Steve Weingart and more.
