Music for Solo Piano

SILK

Silk is my Japanese adventure and my “Zen” album, which I created during a writing retreat in a Ryokan (traditional Japanese Inn) close to Japan's ancient capital, Kyoto. It was not difficult to be inspired while surrounded by bamboo forests, waterfalls, mist covered mountains, ancient temples and sacred shrines!

When writing Silk, I found the Solo Piano to be the perfect vehicle to incorporate the Japanese “Zen” philosophies of simplicity, beauty and space into serene, touching and emotionally moving music. cic.                                                                                                                                                       

HIDDEN DANCERS


Hidden Dancers is designed to take the listener on a gentle, flowing and melodic musical journey... through the mountains, forests and beaches of tropical Australia.

       When I returned to my birthplace in Tropical North Queensland, I spent days taking photographs of my favourite places in an effort to capture the unique magic of where I grew up. Then at home with the photographs pinned up around me, I composed the music for Hidden Dancers… music which I hope will calm and relax you… and also inspire you to appreciate the beauty that is all around us.                                     

MAGIC HAPPENS


    This album was inspired by inspired by my early childhood, spent in the tiny rainforest village of Kuranda, in the tropical North of Australia. The Music for Solo Piano I created for “Magic” embodies the cascade of waterfalls, the silence of the rainforest and the music of the monsoons… captured in a series of tranquil and uplifting piano melodies.

 

     On several of the tracks I've also blended in soft and beautiful “Enya-style” vocal effects by guest vocalist and fellow North Queensland artist Julie Mercer.                                                                                                                      

FIRELIGHT MOON


Firelight Moon is my most gentle, reflective and intimate album. It is touched with a hint of melancholy and inspired in part by my years of classical piano training, when my favourite pieces to play were the Nocturnes (Night Music) of Piano composer Chopin.


     I always picture Firelight Moon as an accompaniment to a quiet evening, a candle, and a glass of red wine...
