There’s a new kid in the piano-maker universe! Warren Shadd is taking the piano world by storm with his new  pianos.

It also hard not to notice the grand piano emblazoned with a name you probably haven’t heard before: Shadd, for Warren Shadd. And he’s quickly making a name for himself in the piano industry.


“He’s been challenging the status quo and succeeding. It’s pretty impressive,” said his longtime friend, Max Murray. “He’s a visionary in an old art form.”


Shadd is a former child prodigy who then became a professional drummer, and is now in the piano making industry. Industry giants like Steinway and Yamaha have reason to take notice.


“Being a musician, I have an advantage of understanding and knowing intimately what pianists want to hear,” said Shadd.
