New to the scene is Jamie Cullum, a 24-year-old singer/songwriter/pianist whose signature sound infuses jazz, rock, hip hop and dance music. His major label debut album, Twentysomething, is currently setting sales records.

In his native UK, Cullum is assembling a home studio that will allow him to take full advantage of the moment whenever inspiration strikes. He refers to the renowned Korg Triton as a useful tool in pursuing his musical innovations: “Part of my thing is you have to be able to write anywhere at anytime, and I love the idea of having everything you need in one unit without having to load up and configure loads of things. I know the Triton is a great workstation and I’ve always loved the Korg sounds. So it will be the perfect marriage between those great sounds and a nice working environment.” Remarking on another Korg piece he’s found helpful, Cullum adds, “I’ve been getting into some old synths of late and I bought myself a microKORG recently. I’ve been playing with that at home and just enjoying it and using it for inspiration purposes. I bought it for two reasons — because it was fun and cool and secondly to take on tour because it runs on batteries. So I play it on tour and just muck about with it. It’s really helped me out with a few ideas recently as well. It’s great little machine.”
