I will be recording my fourth album with Will Ackerman, however, this time, I'm switching it up and doing my first solo piano album!

About this project

I really want to continue to create and release my music. The past year, I have been writing some very innovative songs. Being influenced by so many things this time, friends, family, the ocean, poetry, history, current events - this album has been an extremely emotional journey. ( Which is a good thing! )  I am very excited to share with you, the music that is coming out of me.

Will Ackerman ,  founder of Windham Hill Records, and,  Grammy Award Winning guitarist, is my producer. This is my fourth album and is the second album he and I will be working together on.  He believes in my ability as a composer otherwise - he wouldn't work with me in order to create a solo piano album worthy of a Windham Hill production.

Everything is set in place; the producer, studio, engineer, songs. I need a little help from you to make this happen!  Every dollar will go towards the album: paying  engineer(s), studio time, getting the piano in tune, mixing/mastering everything that makes a record a truly wonderful creation of music.  

Please contribute to help make this album a reality!
