PIERRE EUGENE -
Pierre Eugene was at the age of four when he started playing himself alypso guitar with his older brother's band so he could stay up late. Pierre took his music in Boston as a teenager, blending the mystical rhythms with sophisticated jazz sounds. Still without formal teaching, he later adopted the piano and synthesisers into his repertoire.
'Once you have an ear for it, it's pretty easy', he says.
For the Caribbean-born pianist, guitarist and vocalist, that was an other step in an entertainment career that has taken him from the US to Japan, and from Europe to Australia.
Pierre, has done everything from session work for Motown records in Hollywood to singing in Tokyo nightclubs.Over recent years he's established himself as one of Australian's best lounge musicians, including seven years working at the Hyatts in Sydney and Adelaide.
Pierre has had a taste of acting- as a waiter in the Tia Maria television ad- and has released an atmosphere, meditative album Tranquil Nights.
When asked if there are any ambitions he hasn't fulfilled, he says'lots'.
Pierre Eugene is unforgettable, in every way.
