I love that Nord focuses on making sounds that musicians actually use with the best quality and fidelity versus just putting a bunch of things in their machines that aren't practical. Their products REALLY are for performers and designers!

Born in Oakland, California and raised in Oklahoma City, Dominique Xavier Taplin has degrees in Classical Piano studies and Audio Engineering Post-Production from Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma. Upon moving to Los Angeles 5 yrs ago with my gift and talents, I have quickly become a highly sought after musician and have been blessed to play with and for many accomplished artists.

A few of the artists include: Prince, Max De Castro, Teedra Moses, Ellis Hall, Ghost Note, Judith Hill, Daley, Snoh Aalegra, Queen Latifah, and Toto. I was one of Prince's last keyboard players before he passed away. Currently, I play and tour with ToTo, Ghost Note, Daley, and Snoh Aalegra.
