THE MUSIC OF DAVID LANZ

David Lanz has helped transform New Age music by drawing the genre away from meditation music and toward music for the mainstream listener. His album Cristofori's Dream, released in 1988, stayed at the top of the charts for 27 weeks, and many consider his Christmas Eve album a holiday favorite.
Lanz was born in 1950 and was raised in Seattle, Washington. His father, Howard Lanz, owned a beauty salon and was also a self-taught chemist who experimented with his own line of shampoos, conditioners, and beauty products. His mother Helen, who worked as a secretary, played the piano and was active in Seattle choral groups. She introduced him to all kinds of music, especially that of popular American artists like Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, and Frank Sinatra.
Lanz was playing the piano, composing, and playing his own pieces by age ten. "The first song I wrote, I was 10 years old. I never quit writing, through my teens and into my 20s and 30s. I wrote songs in whatever style I was playing--R&B, rock, pretentious rock, jazz," said Lanz in the San Antonio Express-News. When the Beatles took America by storm in the early 1960s, Lanz fell in love with their style. Before long, he was playing bass clarinet in a high school rock band. After a few months, he returned to the piano and formed his own band. His mother named the group the Town Cryers, and they played at community dances.
