About Jason Tonioli

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I still remember being surprised at Christmas when my parents sacrificed to give me a digital piano while I was in High School. Because of that sacrifice I was able to write hundreds of songs and develop my ability to write and create music. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Kurt Bestor, Kurt Bestor Christmas, Vol. 1 Secret Garden, Songs From a Secret Garden Yanni, Yanni Live At the Acropolis These albums helped shape my development as a musician more than any others. I would listen to the songs from these albums and try to model the way the melody and voices would sing and I can still hear many of their styles in the music I've created. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Raindrops” Sometimes the most simple of songs can bring the most beauty. I find that when I focus on bringing out the melody and having my fingers sing the notes, it always connects more on an emotional level with other people.
