No Dead Guys, a piano blog, is dedicated to new piano music, living composers, and thoughts on the intersection of music and life. I feature music with a tune-and-a-beat, composers with a sense of humor, and performers with a passion to "unstuff" classical music and make it accessible to everyone.
No Dead Guys is a musical and literary site; I do not offer sponsored posts or reviews.
