Al Walser: Our Interview With a Beguiling Grammy Nominee
How long have you been playing the keytar?
You know, I have been in the game forever. I toured in Japan back in '99, I've DJ'd in Lichtenstein and have had my hands in multiple projects over the years. I started playing the keys when I was around 6 years old, so that's when I learned how to play. I incorporated the keytar into my music when I started making pop and dance music in '97.
So, when can we expect your artists the Glamour Girls, aka the "sexiest DJs alive," to get a Grammy nod?
[Laughs] That's a good question! I will focus more on the Glamour Girls right after me. They're always in the back of my mind. I shoot a lot of stuff for German television here in Hollywood, and I always try to incorporate the Glamour Girls somehow. It's a really fun project that's a combination of Chippendales and the Spice Girls. It's a very fun project, but my attention is not 100% on the Glamour Girls at this point. Right now it's more like if there is a club that's opening, and they want to have a really cool show, they book the Glamour Girls. But they're definitely going to be a bigger, more elaborate project in the future.
Do you expect to win the Grammy?
[Laughs.] I don't know. I have no clue! But what I will say is that it is a rendezvous with destiny.
