Angel Above my Piano by Fiona Joy Hawkins
Voted Best Piano Album in the NAR Lifestyle Music Awards 2006. Atmospheric and captivating, this romantic piano album takes you from the perfect ‘Hollywood movie moment’ to the extraordinary wilderness of Antarctica. Angel Above My Piano is a beautiful and emotional journey to landscapes you only dream of.
This hauntingly stunning piano shows virtuosity and yet a delicateness of touch. Opening with Antarctic Interludes, Fiona Joy Hawkins brings to life the majesty, wilderness and wildlife of the Antarctic continent. Inspired after an expedition cruise on the Orion, she has captured the grandness yet fragility of a frozen and unique place. “This glacial world has given a sense of awe and privilege that will live with me for the rest of my life’.
The grand orchestration and soaring piano of Opus For Love is soul searching. “This Opus represents the journey that spans the winter of our life, the heart-ache that we feel for those who have left us, and both the sadness and joy we feel when we look back to remember.
Title track Angel Above My Piano brings to life the painting of an Angel that came in a dream,’The Angel’ marks time and signifies the strength we search for in times of need. She looks like someone you know but no-one you have ever met”.
Fiona Joy Hawkins’ award winning debut album Portrait of a Waterfall charted at #1 on the New Age Reporter World Charts and was a finalist for the Best Piano Album in the NAR Lifestyle Music Awards for 2005.

Fiona also incorporates manuscripts of her music onto canvas to create bold colourful mixed media abstracts that allow the viewer to hear and see her music.
Truly an album of ‘piano to dream to’, Angel Above My Piano by Fiona Joy Hawkins is filled with romantic melodies that are other worldly and will transport you to places you have never imagined.
