Rainforest-Piano Solo Stylist
Daniel brings you his latest album release, Rainforest, titled after inspirations from nature, life, love and God's creation. With over 25 years of experience on the piano, his music ranges from classical influences to the newly-evolved easy listening or melodic new age style of music. While growing up, Dan was drawn to the more popular styles of music from TV and movie themes, and also top radio chart hits with a piano base. Many of his current inspirations include popular artists such as George Winston, Jim Brickman, John Tesh, Yanni and Robin Spielberg. After listening to these musical influences, and being inspired by life's experiences, he began to compose his own style of music in 1993. In many ways, it could be, in essence, a script of life, performed to recreate special moments in time. In other words, each song paints a picture in the listeners mind. The songs are great for relaxing background music, mood music, and as an overture that creates the atmosphere for a relaxing evening dinner, personal contemplation or meditation, or for that quiet reading time at the beginning or end of the day. It's designed for the active listening pleasure of the absorption of the acoustic resonance of the piano. Daniel had decided to keep the style of piano-based music rather than electronic keyboard and multi-instrument panels to preserve the beauty and intricacies of the sound. Keeping with the roots of his interests, it has developed into his own unique classification of 'Piano Solo Stylist'. Daniel's goal is to create music that has a sense of timelessness that retains it's inherent listening quality and stands the test of time. He also wishes to share his expression of life's experiences in a musical format that will help bring greater peace or joy to the listener. Furthering his music and personal interest, Dan hopes to reach a greater audience by making it more readily available through key distribution and promotion activities. TV soundtracks and commercial listings are also of interest as future endeavors.
