    Does anyone know of any bands that incorporate large amounts of piano in their music? Male and female vocalists are fine. I'm looking for a more relaxed feel to the music. Any input is appreciated.

    Mates of State is just keyboards and drums... are you looking for a classical piano sound, or anything with synths?

    I'm gonna say Keane, Ben Folds (Five), and someone like Antony and the Johnsons. Pretty much no guitars in any of that stuff, lots of piano. Of the three, Antony uses the least amount of piano, so try the other two first.
