Chart topping pianist/composer/arranger Arthur Hanlon is the single most recognizable name in Latin instrumental music today. Born in Detroit to Irish American parents, Hanlon found his calling in Latin music and has done what no one else has accomplished in Latin instrumental music, becoming the only pianist to hit Billboard’s Latin charts in the last decade.
The first and only pianist to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Latin charts and the only pianist to hit Billboard’s Latin Airplay charts in over a decade, Hanlon plays a distinctive blend of Detroit street, classical virtuosity, jazz and Latin fusion that has traveled the globe.
Widely acclaimed by artists as well as audiences, Arthur has recorded and performed with the likes of superstars Laura Pausini, Alejandro Fernandez, Juanes, Luis Fonsi and Ricardo Montaner. His most recent album, “Piano Sin Fronteras” (Piano With No Borders), out on Universal Music, is a collection of Arthur’s compositions, performed with the Pauisni, Fonsi, Juanes, Chilean superstar Myriam Hernández, Brazil’s Alexandre Pires and Sergio Vallín, guitarist for leading Latin rock band Maná. The album’s hits include “Ya Te Olvidé,” a duet with Venezuelan superstar Ricardo Montaner which hit Billboard’s Latin pop charts last fall, and the current instrumental single “No Borders.”
A celebrity in the Latin realm, Arthur’s Christmas track, “Esta Navidad,” was selected by the Univision network as its official Christmas song for 2008, with a spot featuring Arthur and his blue piano running nationwide during the month of December. This year, Arthur was again a regular on the Univision network as the official guest artist of “Viva el Sueño,” the network’s top-rated music reality show.
