David Budway

David Budway is one of the most distinctive pianists on today's international jazz scene. While deeply rooted in classical music and rock and roll music, his masterful command for the modern jazz vocabulary has propelled him into the midst of present-day jazz pioneers. He is quickly becoming a highly sought-after accompanist, arranger, film composer, and songwriter.

As a child his Pittsburgh home was filled with the sounds of the Beatles, Mozart and Bach, as well as classical Arabic music coming from his father's violin. These early influences led him to begin classical piano study at age five and to eventually earn a Masters Degree in Classical Piano at Duquesne University, where he later taught Jazz and Classical piano for 15 years. It was during this time in Pittsburgh that he recorded his first jazz album in 1989 with sister Maureen entitled “Jazz, the Budway”.
