I. Can’t. Stop. (smile) This is one of my favorite weekly posts, sharing music that someone may not have stumbled upon yet.
Music does so much for us: mentally and emotionally. It is often the backdrop of many writers of all genres. Today I want to introduce you to one of the pianists that form much of the backdrop of my writing life – Philip Wesley. I studied piano when young, another one of those things my rebellion cast a heavy cost on. If I had all of the time in the world, this is the one instrument that I would return to; pick up where I left off. This particular album, although darkly named, is full of beauty and emotive craft. I listen to it almost daily. I hope you enjoy this artist. He’s on Amazon and probably iTunes as well. Rarely can I ever say that all tracks on an offering have appeal to me. This artist would be one of a very few exceptions.
One of my all-time favorite pieces: Far and Away
An especially poignant tune, full of promise.
And one that always stimulates thought, creativity and drive.
I leave you with Tear of the East – such a moving and demonstrative piece.
Thanks for traveling this musical path with me, and may your week be more than you ever thought possible.
