Ruben Erazo, Subito Pianno's front man was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. He studied music (piano and voice). His influences are very wide and contrasting. He admires and respect African American music geniuses that developed, under very adverse conditions, ragtime, the blues, jazz,soul and the wonderful pop music of the 20th century. Without them, neither Elvis nor The Beatles would have been possible. It is only fair to acknowledge this fact and give African American musicians a big thank you for making our lives happier through their music.
