Lou Pardini is an American Grammy-nominated keyboardist, songwriter, and vocalist who is now best known as a member of the multi-platinum Chicago. He is known for his work with notable musicians such as Stevie Wonder, Santana, Elton John, Peabo Bryson, Earth, Wind, & Fire, The Doobie Brothers, and he has written hit songs for Patti Austin, Kenny G, The Temptations, and more. His Grammy nominated song "Just To See Her", recorded by Smokey Robinson, also won Smokey his first ever Grammy for the Best Male R&B Vocal performance. The song "What Might Have Been" recorded by Lou on his solo album titled Live and Let Live has also been a popular favorite in the Philippines, Japan, Asia, and Europe.

As a composer and artist, Pardini's credits include a vast library of music featured on TV and film including the recently released Romance and Cigarettes, written and directed by John Turturro and starring Kate Winslet and James Gandolfini, and the movie Blue, directed by Ryan Minningham.

In August 2009, Pardini answered Bill Champlin's departure as keyboardist and vocalist in the multi-platinum band, Chicago.[1]

It's a huge honor to be a member of a band that I've loved for so many years ... The first time I found myself on stage actually performing Beginnings with the real Chicago, I had an out-of-body experience. I've worked with many great artists and musicians, but it’s another thing entirely to be a part of a legend.

— Lou Pardini[2]
