Influenced by vintage recordings of black pianists, Silvan Zingg taught himself to play the piano during his early school years. Silvan studied piano and trombone for six years and after completing courses in graphic design he started a professional music career.
Silvan quickly became a popular entertainer at his college due to his sensational interpretation of the blues. He easily convinced his listeners that he was passionate about music, including classic Boogie Woogie, Blues, and Jazz, with variations from other musical genres.
