About Mr. Kaplan

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. My parents bought a piano when I was five. I immediately went up to the piano and started playing around on it. I didn't know of the notes or what the instrument really did, but I knew I liked it. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Depeche Mode, Black Celebration Otis Spann, Otis Spann Is the Blues (Remastered) Ray Manzarek's piano and organ playing influences me to this day. Otis Spann was one of the best Piano players of all time and a great influence. I love everything Depeche Mode has done, but Black Celebration is their best. 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. “Propaganda” I wrote this song as a political protest against all the propaganda we are bombarded with every day. I put a great deal of emotion into this song, which makes it special. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? Hands down the greatest moment in my musical career was meeting mixing engineer Dave Pensado. He has become a mentor and friend. I have, and continue to learn from him all the time. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? There is always something left on my bucket list. It is never ending.
