People have been asking me why all of the new singles I am releasing have hearts on the covers. Easy answer: they will all be put out as an album once they are all released as singles. The album will be entitled, “Heartfelt Solo Piano.” Then they ask, “Why are you bothering to put them out as singles when you can just put out an album?” And I tell them that it is because you get much more action on Spotify to release each single separately as Spotify offers to promote each single. They encourage artists to release singles by doing this. If I put an album out, I am only able to promote one song. The rest of the tracks will be overlooked. When I put out singles, I can promote each single separately and hope that they will add the track to a Spotify playlist or will promote it through “Release Radar” or “Spotify Radio.” Also, these days, most people don’t buy albums/CDs, except at concerts. New cars don’t have CD players anymore and most computers no longer have CD drives. Below are singles covers of the tracks that have been released and two that will be released by April 1st.
Pure Joy – Live at Piano Haven released 12/18/2018
This was an audience participation improvisation that occurred in a concert on November 4, 2018 at Joe Bongiorno‘s Piano Haven Studio. People were asked to pick three notes, from A – G. The notes F, A, C were chosen. Then people were asked to choose a feeling. The feeling chosen was “Joy.” With that, this piece of music was born. Special thanks to Joe Bongiorno at Piano Haven Studio for the fantastic video and audio.
“Innocence” was released on January 14, 2019
“Sweet Honey” I wrote this for my life partner, Christine. The title sums up my feelings about her and having love in my life. This single was released on Valentine’s Day, 2019.
YOU CAN STREAM THIS MUSIC ON SPOTIFY, PANDORA, AND APPLE MUSIC.
YOU CAN ALSO DOWNLOAD AT AMAZON, BANDCAMP, AND iTUNES.
“Yin and Yang” was released on February 25, 2019.
This piece is a jazz waltz. Something a little different.
“Day of Reckoning” was released on March 4, 2019.
Most of my music is peaceful and positive. Not so much here. Put on your headphones and turn the volume up to “11.” Here my Steinway B roar!
“Foreign Lands” – Release date 3/18/2019
I was taking a spiritual journey to foreign lands while playing piano in the comfort of my home studio. It is about traveling and exploring new territory with eyes wide open. I think it works on the physical level of going to another country and it also works for internal exploration. It’s peaceful, comforting and mysterious as well.
“Have No Fear” – release date 4/1/2019
