Stir your emotions with Awaken, Isaac Shepard's fourth solo piano CD. These original neo-classical compositions will inspire you with their simplicity and enliven you with their depth. Isaac's latest offering stands solidly on the pillars of his three previous solo piano albums (Swept Away, Deep Joy, and The Renewing), gracefully blending beautiful ballads with unforgettable melodies. Growing up in a musical family, Isaac began playing piano/keyboards by ear at the age of twelve and very soon thereafter started performing with his family at random venues throughout Southern California. After collaborating with his family on their first full-length album, Isaac produced his own CD called 'On Subtle Ground' in 1998, featuring original keyboard instrumentals. In 2005, Isaac released his first live piano album, 'Swept Away.' In 2008, he released his second piano album 'Deep Joy', which reached #1 in the iTunes New Age charts. Isaac's third solo piano album, 'The Renewing', was released 2009. Isaac enjoys composing music across diverse genres, including classical, jazz, pop, rock, techno, electronica, and trance. His music and orchestrations can also be heard in several casual games, including 'Airport Mania: First Flight', 'Simplz: Zoo', 'Build in Time', and 'Music Catch'.
