New Instrumental Album!

Worked with my friends Christian Haberkern (guitar) and Brian Sanders (cello) on this one. It tells the story of a traveler through space and time. Inspired by this poem by Tolkien:

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”


Really wanted to capture the feeling of subtle change. The feeling when you watch leaves slowly change, or wind blowing through the forest. A lot my piano pieces have been coming out with a strong pentatonic feel lately. Can’t really say why exactly, but I guess I’ll just run with it. 

Feel free to download. 

Recorded on a 1929 Steinway. 


I wrote this piece up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’ve noticed when I sit down at the piano these Native Indian sounds seem to come out. That old pentatonic sound.
