THE ORIGIN OF THE PROJECT
The first time we discussed creating a piano only CD was in the fall of 2012 when we were in the studio recording "Vagabond". Over the past 6 years we have had the opportunity to produce several projects that included a few songs that were highlighted by the melodic tone of the piano. We have now decided to act on that original idea and create a CD that features the piano as the main instrument of choice.
We wanted to create something very special with this CD so we are including 15 songs. 7 songs will feature the piano and vocals - including the never before release version of "Condemned to Love". We have also included the piano only instrumental versions of those songs on the CD as well. And as an added bonus we are including a never before released piano and vocals version of "Dig Up Her Bones".
Included on the CD are:
- Condemned to Love
- Feels Like I’m Dying
- Am I Nothing At All?
- Straight Jacket
- Old Dark House
Piano/Guitar and vocals
- Dig Up Her Bones
- "Condemned to Love"
- "Feels Like I’m Dying"
- "Am I Nothing At All?"
- "Straight Jacket"
- "Old Dark House"

Risks and challenges
Releasing any independent music project can be problematic. For the last 5 years we have partnered with Kickstarter and our supporters to release over a dozen music and video projects and we feel that we have a reliable model that will promote the project and achieve the goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
