The Ultimate Tribute to the Music of Billy Joel

If you consider the definition of "Tribute" as being an acknowledgment of respect and admiration, you can understand what has driven band leader Tony Monaco to form Turnstiles. As a young man, Monaco became an inspired, lifelong fan of the Piano Man and he used that inspiration to grow as a pianist, vocalist, and songwriter. As a result, Billy's style has been forever imprinted on his musical soul, much like that of Ray Charles and many others have been imprinted on that of Billy Joel.

Jackie Evancho

Since she first dazzled American television audiences at the age of 10 – gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC’s America’s Got Talent – Jackie Evancho has released a string of platinum and gold albums, with sales of over 2.5 million in the U.S. Along the way, she has also made history – the youngest solo platinum artist, the youngest “Top 5” debut artist ever in the U.K, the youngest person to give solo concert at Lincoln Center, the highest-ranking debut artist of 2010. With the release of Two Hearts, the amazing journey of Jackie Evancho reaches an exciting new place, both creatively and personally. The album’s title says a lot about growth: Jackie’s heart is always in the classical crossover singing her fans love, but she is discovering another facet of her work, her range and, thus, her heart – a love of songwriting and a new, expressive pop sound. Jackie Evancho is any many ways a typical teenager: she lives in Pittsburgh with her family, where she recently got her driver’s license. She is continuing her education in the midst of touring and recording. And her heart opens itself to more than music: Jackie is a proud supporter of her transgender sister Juliet and the struggle for transgender equality.
