New Album

Album of the Year!

Featured Single

One of our latest projects is creating a garden. Having a garden in the Southwest is much more challenging than having a garden on the East Coast. Back in New York, I used to have a 2,500 sq. ft. garden, with a greenhouse. One truckload of horse manure in early spring and the only challenge was keeping up with the weeds. Here in the Southwest, shade from the sun and protection from high winds is a priority. It’s also important to have a drip irrigation system. Water is scarce.  We love having a garden, not only for the fresh produce, but for the birds and other wildlife that it attracts.

Stay well, stay safe!

Sending love, peace, joy, gratitude and good health from New Mexico~
Louis

This song is about the planet we live on. It’s a call to action to address climate change. There is hope and positivity in this song and it is my wish that humans on the planet hear the call and begin to live more sustainably and intelligently in order to keep our beautiful planet a place where we can all thrive peacefully and joyfully. In spite of all that is happening now environmentally and politically, I have to stay positive and have hope that we will persevere as a species.

Two New Singles

“Comfort” was released on February 12, 2021. It is a single from the upcoming album, Nighttime Piano for Relaxation and Deep Sleep

“Comfort”, the first track on my Nighttime Piano for Relaxation and Deep Sleep album, which comes out in April, is designed to invite the listener into a very relaxed and safe state of being. It is meant to earn the listener’s trust so that the music that follows it will help them let go of the day and enter into dreamland safely and comfortably. Like most of the music on the album it is softly played and at a very slow tempo. 

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunesAmazon and Bandcamp

Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in November, 2020.

“Winding Down” was released on February 19, 2021. It is a single from the upcoming album, Nighttime Piano for Relaxation and Deep Sleep

“Winding Down” is what needs to be happen at the end of the day. It’s an important step in relaxing and getting ready for sleep. All media and screens need to be turned off. These are important steps in quieting the mind and relaxing the body. This is another single from the Nighttime Piano for Relaxation and Deep Sleep album

Two New Singles

“Conviction” was released on January 14, 2021. It is a single from the upcoming album, Provocative Piano

Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in September, 2020. 

Conviction is a powerful song with two strong meanings. One meaning is being free from doubt, strongly believing that one is right. Certain. The other meaning is in law: a final judgement of guilty in a criminal case by a jury or a judge that results in some sort of fine or punishment. I was thinking about the political climate & different points of view. 

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunesAmazon and Bandcamp

“Somber” was released on January 22, 2021. It is a single from the upcoming album, Provocative Piano

Somber is a contemplative piece about looking back into the shadowy part of one’s past. There is sadness, there is grief, there is love lost. It is a chance to reflect on the darkness and come to terms with it and let it go so that it doesn’t bring sadness into the present. 

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora Radio

Three New Singles

These three singles were released in December, 2020 and are from the Provocative Piano album. The album release date is January 29, 2021.

“Prayer for America” was released on December 4, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Provocative Piano.

Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in September, 2020.

I’ve been feeling like I’m watching the fall of Rome in real time here in the United States. This country, that I live in and that I love, is coming apart politically, socially and environmentally. This song is a prayer for us to find our way out of the present situation and create a beautiful democracy that works for all people so that we can live healthy, happy lives. 

“Same Old Story” was released on December 18, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Provocative Piano

Listen here 

Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in September, 2020.

There’s a sadness to this piece. Some things never change. The same theme keeps returning. There are places in the music where it seems like something different might happen, but then it goes back to the same old story. Things do change over time, but consciously seeing what needs to change in oneself requires awareness and effort. It is definitely worthwhile to make the effort to change and grow. 

“You Should Know” was released on January 1, 2021. It is a single from the upcoming album, Provocative Piano

Listen here 

Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in September, 2020. 

This track is about positive values and higher emotions. It is about striving to do your best and live a life of honesty and integrity. It’s about doing what you say you are going to do and having your word be your bond. It’s about taking a good look at oneself and making efforts to work on the issues that prevent one from living a joyous, productive and creative life.

New Single – “Silver Lining”

“Silver Lining” was released on October 16, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Feel Good Piano

Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in June, 2020 

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunesAmazon and Bandcamp

This song was inspired by the state of things today. We have a pandemic, lockdowns, layoffs, massive unemployment as well as serious political turmoil and division. With all that negativity, I try to focus on the positive. The idea with “Silver Lining”, is that something good will come out of all this darkness.

New Single – “So Easy”

“So Easy” was released on October 2, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Feel Good Piano

Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in June, 2020 

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunesAmazon and Bandcamp

This is a super relaxed and very positive swing tune. It’s a great follow up to “In the Flow” because when one doesn’t fight what is and actually goes with the flow, life is “So Easy”. It also fits in well with the album as it is Feel Good Music. There’s a long improv section at the end of the piece that kind of strolls off into the sunset.

When one is aligned with what is, one is in the flow. This is an extremely positive state of being. Everything is accepted neutrally, there is no good or bad. Whatever one is presented with, all is accepted and appreciated. This is life in the highest state of consciousness.

New Single – “Diablo Rojo”

Diablo Rojo Cover

“Diablo Rojo” was released on July 3, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Panama Piano.

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp

This song is about the rogue buses of Panama City and beyond. Diablo Rojo means Red Devil. These are colorfully painted buses with magnesium rims and chrome plated exhaust pipes that roar through the city streets with music blaring. These old U.S. school buses were the only mass transit back in the day. The buses are privately owned and charge $.25 a ride. Apparently with no seat belts or safety, these buses are pretty dangerous and they are being phased out and replaced by normal looking mass transit buses. It is sad that so many of them have been scrapped as each of these buses is uniquely painted and can be seen as works of art.

New Single – “Casco Viejo”

Casco Viejo Cover

“Casco Viejo” was released on June 26, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Panama Piano.

Stream on Spotify   Apple Music  and  Pandora Radio

Download on Amazon  iTunes and Bandcamp

“Casco Viejo” is another single from the upcoming Panama Piano album. Casco Viejo is Spanish for Old Quarter. This area reminded me of the French Quarter in New Orleans architecturally. It is well known for its dining and nightlife scene with cocktail lounges, rooftop bars, and global restaurants. Approaching this song musically, I connected with the music of the old dance halls of Cuba. The music is definitely old school Latin. I felt like I was channeling that type of music with this song.

New Single – “Las Lajas”

Las Lajas Cover

“Las Lajas” was released on June 12, 2020

Stream on Spotify   Apple Music  and  Pandora Radio

Download on Amazon  iTunes and Bandcamp

“Las Lajas” is a single from my upcoming album, ‘Panama Piano.” It was our second beach experience on our amazing Panamanian road trip.  We took a five minute walk to the beach from our little B&B casita and were blown away by the fact that we were the only ones on the beach for as far as we could see in either direction! We saw living sand dollars and some baby sea snakes when the waves would wash in. It was a fantastic experience and super relaxing. We were filled with openhearted gratitude.
