The idea for this project came when i received an opportunity to spend time exploring the unique sound qulaities of a "Stuart and Sons" grand piano. I spent a day just revisiting the church songs that I grew up with. Reflecting on these great songs, I soon got lost in a marriage of beautiful melodies, fond words and even fonder memories, along with the exquisite, sonorous sounds of these beautifully hand-crafted pianos.
The experience quickly became personal - my space and my time. It was a spiritual time of reflection in what was a challenging period of my life. The listener is invited into my own space and will journey with me with these familiar tunes bringing tranquillity and peace to your world. Each arrangement is improvized around a timeless melody and I have endeavoured to not allow the arrangement or musicianship to cloud the melody.
The Australian made piano is renowned for its constant vibration that creates an outstanding dynamic range, longer sustain, great clarity and richness of sound.
To record an album that documents both the sounds of the instrument and my own original voice as an arranger and pianist, is a lifelong memory.
