“The Kurzweil Artis allows me to perform with complete freedom and ease. It has all the sounds I need for both live shows and studio work, and the piano sounds are the best out there, whilst the incredible organs with the realistic drawbars and leslie speaker effect make this the perfect killer B3 style board to take on stage. It’s so easy to use and inspirational for a songwriter.”
