Dylan Samuel, Bass
"Hey! This is Dylan Samuel, the person pictured on the left here with the bass. One of the things that connects me and Robin is that we both have dads and we both know each other's dads. Because of this, I have committed the rest of my life to providing bass-related services to this project. I have played bass in the Austin Metropolitan Area since I was in middle school and I am solely responsible for the changing skyline and the tech industry's invasion of our wonderful city. Please send all complaints and concerns about this development to me."
Pierson Keating, Keyboards
A pianist to the core, Keating has been in love with the keys since the age of eight. That love has taken him on quite the journey starting with a jazz and composition double major at West Virginia U, then onto to Nashville where he performed in David Oakleaf's band and worked with songwriter Dave Pahanish. From there he's played virtually every form of piano performance there is, from upscale Jazz to Dueling Pianos and cruise ship gigs. Now he's an Austinite and performing with Robin Mordecai while exploring his own fusion and alternative rock muses.
Laura Mordecai, Percussion
After a brief career in the film business, Laura found her way back to the percussion section in the early 2000's via Austin Legendary Latin jazz band Beto y los Fairlanes. She has recorded with them as well as with Stephanie Urbina Jones and the Honky Tonk Mariachi, The Texicana Mamas, Javier Chaparro & Salúd and more.
