ABOUT DANCING ON THE WIND
“I fell in love with New Age solo piano music over 25 years ago, listening to and playing music by pianists David Lanz, Suzanne Ciani, Spencer Brewer, Chip Davis, Jim Chappell and others. I was so inspired by their music that I wrote my first piano solo, “Heather, Roses and Moonlight”, for a piano student who shared my love of New Age solo piano. However, soon after, feeling that I couldn’t compose, I stopped writing music entirely. In 2015, I recorded and produced my first album, Soul Whispers, which consisted of my arrangements of Jewish melodies of Eastern European origin. Although tracks from Soul Whispers were being played on several online solo piano radio stations, I felt that the need to prove herself as a composer, not just as an arranger or pianist, to the solo piano community. Determined to prove myself as a composer, I sat down at the piano and after a few tries, she began to compose. The blocks that were preventing me from composing were dissolving. It was as if the flood gates opened and now I couldn’t write down the music fast enough.” The result of this ‘flood of music’ is Dancing on the Wind.
