Album Notes
A NW native, Joel grew up in Portland, learning classical piano early on. Searching for his own style, he pursued Jazz, in which he found expression through the freedom of improvisation. Developing his composition, Joel's writing gradually took on more precise definition within the rural-folk genre (similar to that of George Winston).

A year out from his debut album Joel released the Beckonging Winter, another album of original piano instrumentals. This CD takes a definite “winter” tone, while still holding the relaxing feel found on his debut album, The Joy of Stillness (contact Joel for info).

Like his first album, Joel produced and recorded the whole project. However, this album’s artwork and design were provided by Brandon Buerkle, who wonderfully ties the feel of the music with the look of the album.

The Beckoning Winter
SO NICE. Kinda calms you down during work hours.The piano is GREAT.

Donald Daggett

music good, piano no
I would have downloaded this album for sure except that the piano is "tinny" and this ruined the album for me.

Relaxing, Serene, Wonderful

Brad at CD Baby

Much more than just background or mood music, this solo piano album is notably strong in its composition and more than capable of evoking feeling from even the casual listener. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Bock writes songs that reflect a stark yet deceptively lush atmosphere, a place where comfort is often left to those who choose to seek it for themselves. Handling the entirety of the production and recording duties himself, these works can't help but contain a tangibly personal touch, one that comes through clearly in the soft but poignant notes that he plays with delicacy, carefully mapping out each run so it never falls into the trap of mechanical lulls. Note by note, the tracks rise and subside, cascading with smoothly executed transitions. While these songs do seem to point towards an inevitable cold front, they're not filled with dread or fear. Instead, they're almost a declaration of independence and confidence, a warm welcoming of change and a look towards future prosperity.


Wow again!!
This music was so captivating that I fell asleep while listening to it.
