I think of Piano keys as my friends. Each key has a unique personality, touch and feel. From my earliest memory of music, the piano held a certain magic to me. I would quietly sneak out of my room as a child to press the piano keys in various combinations to hear the magic notes come to life. Harmonics come from these combinations, just as our life is enriched by our relationship with others. When two notes are played, or two people meet, the combination produces a dynamic of the moment and that is where this magic happens.

Music has always touched me in ways I find hard to describe. I hear tones in my head - maybe not traditional melodies, but more spiritual to me as the sounds bring foundation and the richness of harmonics all together. Sometimes it floats like a light breeze - other times it crashes in my mind with deep and dark passages. While other sounds seem to come from Heaven itself.

For years I played cover songs and for a while I tried writing traditional melodies but it never felt quite right. In this new work, I have moved to play from my heart. This is what happens in my mind and this now, is my music. Each playing might stray from the previous - or not. Depends on life, mood, time and how I feel. I finally understand the music I am compelled to play is music from my soul.

What I'm saying is I don't seem to write melodies - I play feelings. Hope you enjoy my music...
