All I’ve ever done for my entire life is to create music. My goal has always been to infuse as much beauty in my music as possible and not to be afraid of things that are “pretty” or things that are “dark” or even “grave.” If I were to be afraid of these things, I couldn’t penetrate the hearts of my listeners or myself the way that I can by going to these extreme musical places. I’ve been told all my life that my music, especially the piano music, has a healing effect, and as a result of being told that, I got it in my head when I was a teenager that what I should really be doing with my music is to heal people with it, including myself. To that end, I have never stopped being inspired by my creator to compose music. I do my best to employ three main disciplines:
Don’t play from memory. Play in the moment – brand new stuff where I don’t know one bit of it
Don’t make any mistakes
Never repeat myself
I’m always composing new music, and a great deal of the time, I’m composing the music when I’m playing it for the first time. Finding a balance between sharing my music while still making a living from it is challenging. I rarely charge money for my music, so donations – especially ongoing monthly donations – really help me continue making music for you and people like you. As my way of saying thank you, for every month that you make a donation, you'll get access to special premium content that isn't available anywhere else!
