A few months ago I created a piano piece from a 30 second recording I improvised a couple years ago.
I wanted the piece to be personal and beautiful. I did my best to achieve it with “Sweet at Home.”
I performed “Sweet at Home” during my piano students’s piano recital last month.
I hope you enjoy.
Music at Noon, Feb 3, 2016 – Sacramento, CA
By all accounts, last month’s Music at Noon show in Sacramento was a big success:
the audience cheered, the show host, Brad, seemed very happy (He actually said
our show was “the most diverse” show he had ever had there!), and I pulled off
three challenging classical pieces as well as doing a bunch of original music
and even some standards, joined by singer Danielle Wachowski and flutist
“Sing Joyfully for Christmas” is an original holiday carol I wrote a few months ago. I conceived of this as a straight-forward, fun, classic Christmas carol. In this recording, I sing it solo at the piano… yet I wrote the music for at least two voices, imagining a choir singing it. Maybe some day one will!
My mom, Margaret C. Murray, is a novelist. A few years back she published her first novel, Sundagger.net, a novel that alternately takes place both in modern day Silicon Valley and ancient Anasazi Native American times. Her new novel, “Spiral,” due to be released soon, is also set in the Ancient Anasazi world in the Four Corners area of the United States. Last year, my mom traveled to Colorado to research (and get inspiration) for her novel. In the past few weeks, I gathered pictures she had taken from her trip into a video slideshow. In addition, I composed a piece of music for the occasion. The result is the video below. I hope you enjoy it…
Here is the music video for my new track “Flower Child,” which we created by putting together footage of friends and family. Thank you to everyone who participated in making this video happen.

This is the new recording of my Christmas song “Something Has Happened to Me
(Maybe It’s Christmas).” I wrote this good feeling number back in 2008, but I
knew that I wanted to redo it when the time came. I determined to get it done
for this Christmas, but it wasn’t easy. I suppose after waiting six years, I
felt the pressure to make the recording as great as possible. When I heard this
version a few nights ago I was ecstatic. To me, this version captures the fun,
family spirit of the song… I hope it warms your heart and brightens your
Holiday Season. Continue reading
My brother Jonas and I are both songwriters. A couple of months ago we performed some of our songs for an outdoor party at a friend’s house. Included here are several unreleased songs of mine that you probably have never heard before:
The song clips on this video are from:
“My Thing of Beauty” is new love song I wrote. Though I wrote this originally for my wife, I think it speaks to the need for us to recognize the beauty and worth of each other, and how in a great loving relationship we can be that for each other. It also speaks to my inner romantic, and the desire to let my woman know what she means to me. The theme of this song reminds me of songs such as Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are” and Bruno Mars’ song of the same name.
Because sometimes you need a reminder of how wonderful you are…
As always, thank you for watching my videos and listening to my music. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I enjoyed writing it: Continue reading
Sometimes there seems to be a magic in life where things just coalesce in amazing and beautiful ways. That is what happened with “You Are Loved,” my song that started as a piano piece and that now is a music video.
This song was conceived as a piano piece several years ago one (it is one of Continue reading
Last month my brother, Jonas Goslow, performed with me onstage for an event in Rocklin, Ca. This was significant because although we are both professional performers and ALWAYS play music at home when we get together, we had NEVER performed together onstage since grade school (!) (That is, with the exception of some impromptu performances we did while traveling in South Africa, England, and Ireland in 2011).

My brother is also a fantastic songwriter in his own right (visit his website) and a great singer (he performs the
