Winter Glass (Piano Rock Band Performance!)

A few years ago I completed a collection of piano pieces called “Waterfall: Original Piano Music.”  The front runner of the collection was a piece called “Winter Glass,” which people repeatedly noticed and talked about, and which I also performed frequently at my shows.  In fact, the piece almost made it into an independent movie, and though that never came through I still see the potential for this little piece to do more things.  Last year a band I was playing with offered to play this song as a piano rock performance (or “rockified”), which up until then had only been done as a solo piano piece.  I was excited by the idea, and we did one performance of it which fortunately I recorded.

“When You’re With Me” – Original Love Song (Debut Performance!)

A couple of weeks ago I debuted a new song dedicated to my wife. I was at a voice recital put on by my voice teacher Larisa Bryski, and I surprised my wife with this love song right in front of everyone gathered at the Shine Cafe in Sacramento, CA. My wife had no idea what was coming, had never heard the song, didn’t know I wrote it much less was planning to present it… and fortunately, without me even asking her to, she got out her phone and filmed this recording (before she even knew what it was!). I also happened to record the audio of my performance, which I spliced together to share with you here so you can share in this moment of loving trickery.

“Punchline King” – Piano Hip Hop Video

So I keep realizing how important it is to just keep creating and sharing what I got going on.  Today I made this quick video (with a little camera work from my wife) of me performing a verse I wrote called “Punchline King.”  This is actually one verse of a 3 verse song that I have been working on, which is intended to be about the lyrics and the piano playing, plus ultimately probably drums/bass.  This is it in its current form.  Hope you like:

“Life is Beautiful” – Original Verse (LIVE)

This is a verse I performed for my good buddy Allan Samson aka “The Next Level” at my interview with him last month. I think this is a powerful verse with a positive message. Note: I did not do the beat, it was on at the radio station. If you know what it is, please let me know and I will amend this post. 😉

“Tickled Pink” LIVE (Yes, My Wedding)

Last year I got married on February 11th. As a special addition to the wedding, both me and my wife each sang songs we wrote for each other. I sang this song with the help of my brother Jonas (guitar/voice) and my buddy Josh Wolfer (voice). This one is dedicated to my wife Charr.

“Tickled Pink”

VERSE 1:
So I messed up, yes I did
And acted like i was just a dumb ass kid
And it upset you bad when I took it to the edge
so now I’m gonna make a new pledge:
