That’s the Power of Love: The Music of My Relationship

A little over six years ago, I met a sweet and lovely woman who also happened to be artistically brilliant.  I quickly realized that in her I had found just about the most wonderful person I had ever met!   We barely started dating and already there was a feeling about our togetherness that I could not remember having experienced before.  It was lovely, it was satisfying, and I had a complete sense of peace and contentment that was new to me.

“Fearless Heart” LIVE with Danielle Wachowski

Several weeks ago I performed for the second time at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Sacramento. For this “Music at Noon” concert I played classical, originals, and standards but had the additional twist of a singer, my good friend Danielle Wachowski, singing several popular standards. Danielle also sang my original song “Fearless Heart,” with me accompanying at the piano.

I originally recorded “Fearless Heart” for my album “I Love You” with Beth Duncan, and for this live performance the result was delightful. I was greatly honored to have Danielle sing my song. Enjoy the video!

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:
