I actually started playing the piano when I was about four years old - simple little ditties to entertain my mother - which grew into the usual piano lesson regimen so many of us knew as kids. I never dreamed of making my own CD of original work until I went to boarding school and discovered I wasn't limited to Rachmaninoff. I will never forget that moment in the music room of Sunnydale Academy - pieces just sort of 'came out' whenever I sat down--particularly when my mind was on anything but making music! This began my dream of capturing melodies I couldn't explain. Dedicated to my mustard seed of faith that this gift I discovered would benefit others, I faithfully lugged an ancient ghetto blaster (remember those!) on to the top of our old upright, scrounged for a random cassette and recorded as much as possible. God only knows where those cassette's are now! But, in the summer of 2008 I entered a local recording studio here in Santa Barbara, CA and approached the keys as I've always done - completely unaware of what will happen, but trusting whatever poured forth would make sense. This is the essence of my music, and this project is a tribute to the twenty years I played on any random piano I could find...be it in a bar, book store or empty church....as well as a tribute to my ninth grade self who believed anything was possible.
