Growing up in Brisbane, Piers was a student at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and attended Kelvin Grove State High School. He is now a world renown classical pianist, and is profiled on Queensland Symphony Orchestra's page: 

"London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane is one of the most inquisitive and engaging live performers of his generation. In great demand as soloist and collaborative artist, recent highlights include a performance of Busoni’s mighty piano concerto at Carnegie Hall, premieres of Carl Vine’s second Piano Concerto, written for him, with the Sydney Symphony and the London Philharmonic, and a sold-out performance of Chopin’s complete Nocturnes at Wigmore Hall."
