BORN TOO LATE by Charlie Parker

Entertainer and songwriter Lance Lipinsky delivers an explosive pumpin' piano performance showcasing his influences of the 1950's and 60s in his original music. He and his Chicago based group "the Lovers," take on a modern evolution of a timeless throwback style combining such sounds as Rockabilly, classic Country, and 60's pop in an unforgettable live concert.

"What’s good doesn’t die,” is a motto Texas native Lance Lipinsky defends and feels obligated to broadcast to audiences. Since childhood he has showcased a musical persona hauntingly inspired from the past, carrying on a tradition to preserve a form of music that is becoming a lost art.

As a new sound emerged in the mid 1950s, flocks of guitar themed singers dominated the scene. In this new arena called Rock & Roll, few front men in history stood behind a piano. Not much has changed almost 60 years later and Lance is one of this rare breed by being a new age piano based Rockabilly entertainer and songwriter.

With driving Jerry Lee style piano rhythms and Elvis inspired swagger in his original music, Lance is a modern day evolution, almost a descendant of his influences of the 50’s and 60’s in his live shows and in his song writing.

In the instant gratification world of YouTube and American Idol reality television, mainstream music has seen drastic changes over the years and these phases never affected Lance, as he remained an old soul by completely ignoring the generation he grew up in.

With no formal training, his dad's vinyl record collection contributed to a self taught education on piano and guitar and was was possessed by music before his time. After dropping out of high school at a mere 17 years old, he landed an over night big break on the Las Vegas strip and his devotion to the 50’s Rockabilly subculture lead to a full time lifestyle and a career.

Combining his influences of 1950's & 60's Rock & Roll, Lance's songwriting can be experienced as a continuation, a sequel to a style that originated from that era. Some would label it as “oldies” or “nostalgia” but artists like Lance devoted in the Roots music movement, remind us that this style is not just a mere trend from the past but rather it's own genre that is still alive and well, standing the test of time.

His first debut original hit album "Roll" was recorded on all vintage analog equipment at the legendary Sun Records in Memphis, TN with his Chicago based band, the Lovers.

Being born too late has its advantages... His wild live shows have led him all over the world, even to making his national television debut at the original Ryman Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. He currently portrays his piano hero pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis in the Tony Award winning musical Million Dollar Quartet, now playing at the Apollo Theater in Chicago, IL.
