Although he began playing piano at age three, smooth jazz pianist Perry Joslin spent the better part of his adult life working outside of the music industry. A business major in college, Joslin continued to perform jazz and graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1983, adding a minor in music to his resume. Despite his love of composition and jazz improvisation, his business interests eventually led him to work in the brokerage industry and finally to success as Partner/Managing Director for the State of Florida at the KPMG LLP tax, audit, consulting firm.
However, as Joslin never gave up performing, he embarked on a serious music career in his early ’40s, releasing his first CD of all-original material Perry Joslin Project on Palmstone Productions in 2003. Joslin is a Grammy-nominated artist who was voted as one of the Top 10 Jazz Pianists in America.
