With subtle nuances and musical allusions, C.S. Bezas writes music that allows the listener to sink back and relax, whether studying or trying to work. Perfect for harried days, A TIME FOR ANA soothes and smooths away frustration, hurt, and fatigue. It is especially effective to help induce relaxation.
Anson Service, of Heuristic Productions, writes, "Your music reminds me of a waterfall. It has a beautiful melody that carries you, which leaves you wanting more and never tiring of it."
"A TIME FOR ANA is a welcome addition to the music libraries of adults who need to unwind and de-stress, in addition to soothing children who have experienced trauma of any sort!" Lori Nawyn, Parker Lane Publishing
"One of the things I loved about this CD, especially compared to other “New Age Piano” artists (whatever that means these days), was that it was very minimal. Too often, contemporary piano artists seem to be obsessed with filling the song’s space with as many notes as possible. They do that by either pounding out thunderous and clustered chords one after the other, or by putting in so many rolls, arpeggios and frills that I wonder if I’m in a smoky piano lounge. This CD is almost minimalist. Simple melodies dance above gentle chords and accompaniments. I almost thought that I could learn to play these songs, they were so clear, clean and simple...A TIME FOR ANA would be great, especially for Sunday listening. Put it on for background while studying your scriptures, or use it as meditation music. It’ll put you in that place for thought and relaxation." Mark Hansen, musician
"Our customers absolutely LOVE your music playing in our store!" Hayley Fair, Creative Keys
As a child, C.S. Bezas had requested ballet lessons. When her mother couldn't find a dance teacher in their tiny Nebraska town, she offered little C.S. piano lessons instead. It only took about three weeks of lessons till she was completely hooked.
By junior high, C.S. Bezas was playing piano for nearly six hours a day. By high school the school's jazz band teacher offered to spotlight her compositions in a community concert - dedicated solely to her original music.
Soon after that, she was touring and performing in a variety of settings. She also was a featured vocal soloist with her college's chamber choir and toured in Europe and in the states. C.S. Bezas has appeared on television, on film, in clubs, and on stage. She frequently performs for charity organizations and other events.
The music from A TIME FOR ANA was recorded to honor children every where whose time of peace is still to come.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the CD, A TIME FOR ANA, will go to The Smile Train, an organization which has brought to pass over 112,000 free cleft lip surgeries for children throughout the world since 1999.
