The music world got some very sad news this morning with the announcement that young (and extremely talented) pianist Austin Peralta has passed away. Son of skateboarding legend Stacy Peralta he chose a different path and was already pretty damn successful at it.
At the young age of 22 he already had 3 records released: 2 with Sony in Japan in 2006 and one on Brainfeeder last year.
We almost booked Austin & Thundercat last summer at our 5th year anniversary party at the Montreal Jazz Fest so this news is definitely hitting home.
Our condolences to Austin’s family.
