Musician

Jonathan Romppel

Jonathan Romppel is a professional pianist, keyboardist, organist, arranger, producer, composer, and musical director. Comfortably proficient in all contemporary styles, from Pop to Gospel to Jazz to RnB to Country, he has a unique approach to playing the keys. His first influences as a pianist come from George Duke, Jeff Lorber, Cory Henry, and Shaun Martin.

Coming from a musical family in a small town in Germany and growing up with Black music like Soul, RnB and Jazz prepared Jonathan for a life with a unique musical identity. Starting classical piano lessons at age 5, singing in classical boy's choir at 8, playing in church at 10, and autodidactically learning to play the drums, guitar, bass, harmonica, and more in his teen years paved the way for a steep musical career. Discovering the music of Stevie Wonder for himself at age 13 was a major turning point when he started to take music seriously and went on a never-ending journey to explore new sounds.
