Greetings Friends,

Intro: 

As my THANKS to you for checking out my Kickstarter, please free to download this song "Take Me Back Home." This is an improv piece I recorded at my house one quiet evening (please note this song is not on the CD).

Story: 

Straight up, I love to create melodies. In April 2011, I decided to seriously start composing solo piano pieces - until then, I had played only in a band and wrote songs with lyrics. Now a year and a half later, as a self-taught composer, I'm almost ready to release my FIRST CD.

This CD will have a live/intimate feel - I want it to be as if you were in the room with me while I'm playing.

All songs were memorized and then played how I felt on the spot - I allow room for change as that's where I feel most comfortable. 

Here is my first promotional video of the song "The Peace In Hope" which will be on this CD. 

Here's more music to share with you! Please listen to another full length song ("Part The Veil") and two samples ("Tenderness" & "Blossoming") which will be on my album - all are pre-mastered. Your support will help put that final "touch" on it. 

If for some reason these samples load a tad slow, go directly to my Bandcamp Profile by clicking the icon below!

    Reward #9 + I will allow YOU to pick the TITLE of ONE my songs on the next CD! The rule will be I will have four different title options for 1 song. I will send the song via digital download. After listening, you will have a couple days to ponder it and then submit which title you feel fits best. If for some reason you come up with something different but still fits within the theme of the CD, that will also be considered. Very cool and thank you for helping me!
