This project is to bring my passion of piano solo's, original & cover songs, into a reality w/ digital downloads, CD's, & books!

First off, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to visit my kickstarter and watch my video.  As many of you may know, I am a member of the band In Fear And Faith, and I write the piano/keys as well as guitar.  For those of you that are aware of our music, it is very "epic" and heavily driven by piano to give it a unique and elegant feel.  Piano is my passion, and is one of the main features that separates us from the "over-saturated" genre.

I've been playing piano since I was about 8 years old, took lessons for about 4-5 years, but I was a stubborn student.  I was not fond of classical music and the same generic tunes that every beginning to intermediate pianist in the making was forced to learn.  I knew what I liked and I forced it upon my instructor.  I have always admired the contemporary sounds of certain artists like Philip Glass & Yanni...and I would have to say my biggest influence is absolutely Yanni.  Yanni is one of the most successful musicians to focus on playing through passion versus playing by rules, and this is something that I hold high value to.  There shouldn't be rules & limitations to music...that's why when people ask me how to perfect certain parts of my compositions, I tell them to make it their own.

Almost 2 years ago while I was on tour (with We Came As Romans, My Band IFAF, Confide, Upon A Burning Body, & Abandon All Ships), I pinched a nerve in my already damaged spine, which caused my body & leg to spasm...and once I fell, I shattered my foot.  There's few things worse than being forced to fly home and be immobile for months while my band is on tour doing what I absolutely love to do, which is perform on stage.  It wasn't all bad though, after the depression and self pity wore off, I decided to lock down and work hard at pursuing & creating something different in an industry where everything is the same.  I decided to recreate our music in piano & orchestral renditions, with the finished product being titled Symphonies.  I spent hours a day for months working on this album, and it truly opened my eyes to the passion I've had since I was young, and that's creating & writing my own piano compositions.  After that album, I have received countless requests to start releasing my own piano solos.  The thought of it gives me goosebumps and to create my own piano compositions and have them available as an album is an attainable dream.

Unfortunately, a couple weeks ago, I rebroke my previously injured foot and was forced into surgery.  I've been stuck in Florida for weeks and have been forced to pay over $10,000 in surgery expenses and Emergency Room expenses.  Thanks to my incredibly loving parents, they dropped everything and forked up the funds to make it possible for me to FINALLY have surgery.  This kickstarter is to fund the software, mixing/mastering, recording, pressing of CD's, merchandise, sheet music, books, distribution, commissions...all with the ultimate goal of having the opportunity to give back to the amazing people that brought me to this world and are responsible for the talents I've developed.

Please help me make this dream a reality, as it won't stop at just one CD...it's funding a potential long lasting career, and I have MANY goals in sight.  Not only do I plan to do CD's of original compositions, I plan to have multiple Cover Song EP's, multiple sheet music books at different level intervals, tutorials, DVD's...the goals are endless, all I need is this initial "Kickstart", and anything helps!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Ramin Niroomand
