Solo piano has been a favorite of Barry W. Mince, Jr., for a long time now - 21 years! Starting piano at age 6, Barry continued to perform at recitals and eventually performed at college schools of music. From performing the accompaniment with the high school chorus to growing into an independent artist, composing music, especially solo piano, is Barry's passion and focus. Most of his musical inspiration comes from a collection of works from various artists and composers, from many genres and times, and from many avenues in the music world. Play by ear, play by memory - it's all naturual to this guy. A very distinct sound and feeling can be heard in his music, either in the energy of a song, or in the songs as parts to a whole. This artist continues to learn, and wishes to give a pleasant musical feeling through the song of the piano to anyone who appreciates such musical style! Everything he writes is made either on the Baldwin Acoustic (concert pitch) upright piano, or the Korg Kronos Music Workstation - anything that is recorded is done on the Korg Kronos. Burning the Midnight Oil was done as real-time recording by the way...no computer editing or post production editing was done! He went on to create the multi-instrument, uplifting "Heal" as his first single release in September of 2013. Barry also makes music for websites.
Barry is 28 years old, 26 at the time of the first release, now married to his wife, Miriam, lives in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, and is continuing on to explore what can be created next - more solo piano? perhaps something different? - who knows? A sophomore followup piano album is in the works currently as of 2015. He would like to thank his parents for all of their support for his music over the years, and for getting him that first piano at 6; his fiancee Miriam, for being his heart these days, and his family and friends' support while growing up and encouraging him to play the piano over the years.
