Gary Girouard – Award-Winning Solo Pianist and Composer.
Some wise man once said; “You don’t choose your passion, your passion chooses you”. For Gary Girouard that passion has always been the piano. Over the past 10 years, he has released four “Naked Piano” albums – with his latest “The Naked Piano: Light & Dark” winning the prestigious “Whisperings Album of the Year” and Solopiano.com “Album of the Year” Awards.
Girouard’s style combines equal parts classical, new age and pop into what the editor of Boston Live hails as “a masterpiece…a testament to the gracious sounds of a fluid live recording”. Wilton Syckes, President of the Piano Travelers Association heralds The Naked Piano series as “the most expressive, relaxing piano music I have ever experienced…as one with a lifetime love of music, I could listen to these compositions for a lifetime”.
The Naked Piano series evolved from the sentiment to capture timeless themes and allow people an escape from an otherwise hectic lifestyle. Girouard comments; “People lead increasingly stressful lives, The Naked Piano is a simple response – highlighting a beautiful instrument in its most pure and natural form. The goal is to inspire the mind, while soothing the soul.”
Girouard is a QRS Music Recording Artist (the original Player-Piano Roll company) and continues to compose and perform his unique brand of solo piano artistry. Visit www.nakedpiano.com for additional information - including sheet music, bookings and upcoming performances.
