Check out this version of Bruno Mars' hit, "24K Magic" as covered by my friends in my fantastic USC Senior Project Band.
Michael Arrom is a keyboardist whose playing has been described as "stunning" and "phenomenal". By 18 he had accompanied Keith Urban on live network television and toured the world with the prominent guitar virtuoso, Steve Vai. Michael paused his professional career and left his New Jersey roots to pursue his studies at the University of Southern California's prestigious Popular Music Program, where he studied privately with the incomparable Patrice Rushen. While at USC, Michael earned multiple department honors and picked up the nickname, "The Doctor".
Michael has learned from an incredible family of artists. As a young man, he was fortunate to have found life-long mentors David Rosenthal (Billy Joel, Happy the Man) and Marc Swersky (Joe Cocker, Hillary Duff). Michael extended his education by learning from artists visiting USC including Paul Jackson, Jr, Michael Boddicker, Smokey Robinson, John Fogerty, Mike Love, Chaka Khan, Bill Withers and Giorgio Moroder, just to name a few.
