The Piano Guys is an American music duo consisting of Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson. They became famous through YouTube, where they posted videos of renditions and mashes of popular songs accompanied by professional-looking video clips. In December 2011 they released their first album.
Paul Anderson has a piano shop in St. George, Utah. He met musician Jon Schmidt as the latter walked in to ask if he could practice there for an upcoming concert. They started making audio recordings and videos together. After Steven Sharp Nelson joined, the group took off, producing a music video each week and posting it to YouTube. Several videos have over a million views.
The team also includes Tel Stewart and Al Van Der Beek, who work mostly behind the scenes in music and video production.
