Where to begin....it's not like your host here has known Ace Livingston a long time.  In actuality, we just "met" in the past two weeks!  But he feels like Family :)  And there would be many who would agree.  We'll GET to them!

Let's take you back to the beginning - and Jamaica - where Ace was born and raised.  Until his family moved to Connecticut when he was 13.  He was passionate about sports and music.  But his soccer dreams were dashed when an injury occurred. So, he channeled that disappointment into his other love.  And made it work for him in the most creative way.  Ace had learned piano as a very young child, but picked up the bass at age eight - and took to it like a fish to water.  His Dad was a Pastor who played sax - and Ace, along with his brothers, were in a Church-based family band.  He was immersed in Gospel music.  But Jazz became another true love.  Heck, truth be told, he played ALL of it!  And was so GOOD at playing all of it that heads were spinning.  When that head-spinning started: at a festival in Mexico, hosted by P. Diddy.  NOW it's time for The List :-D

Here's a gentleman who studied manufacturing and engineering in college - little did he know that he'd be on "The Today Show" and "The View" and "Good Morning America" - with Jennifer Lopez.  Ace has played Gospel with Israel Houghton & New Breed; Jazz with Alex Bugnon; R & B with Bobby Brown and Joe - and Pop with Pink.  One of those friends that feel the connection strongly: Harry Connick Jr.  You'll find out why on 4/18.  You'll discover a LOT about Ace quickly - it's like that with him.  He's an Open Book in the best way.  It's why his music is so breathtakingly honest and personal.  To YOU, the listener!  That's a promise.
