Known as "The Chairman of the Boards" for his work as a keyboardist for the jam-rock band Phish, Page McConnell has come into his own as a solo artist after 20 years as a supporting player. McConnell, whose improvisational work was integral to Phish's renowned live show, performs a concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

Born in Philadelphia in 1963, McConnell honed his skills as a classical, improvisational and contemporary pianist while studying at Southern Methodist University and Goddard College in Vermont. He expanded his repertoire over the years with Phish, and in 2001 formed an electronic side project called Vida Blue, which released two albums in three years. Next month, he releases his self-titled solo debut.
