Sibling Tsuns on rise

P *erth * Nine weather presenter *Angela Tsun *isn't the only talented one in her family. Her brother *Danny * is gaining recognition as a blues keyboard player in the band of WAMi-winning artist *P.J. O'Brien *, who tonight is embarking on a two-week tour of WA.

But here's the clincher - Danny is visually impaired.

The 26-year-old says he started playing piano in primary school, learning by ear alone.

"It actually helped me develop my ear more because I am visually impaired," he tells _Access All Areas _.

"When I started getting into blues and jazz music I didn't have any lessons, I've always been self-taught."

The siblings were close growing up in NSW and Danny appreciates that both he and Angela, 28, have grown into their own talents.

"Obviously, it's nice to be Angela Tsun's brother but I like to try and step out of the shadow a little bit, work in my own right. We've all got our strengths and talents and it's great. She was never really as good as me on piano," he laughs.

Angela says after being in Perth for four years, it feels even more like home now her brother has come to visit and she is looking forward to watching him play to a local crowd.

"Every time I watch him I am just blown away by his talent. He is something to be seen," she says.

Yesterday, Angela took Danny and her father, who also flew over from Sydney, on a tour of Perth, including *Kings Park *, the city and *Fremantle *.


  • The P.J. O'Brien band are playing 12 shows around WA, including the Hyde Park Hotel on Saturday and the Charles Hotel on Tuesday *.
