As you might've noticed, I've kinda disappeared lately. I wanted to disconnect and really hone my craft to return with a piece that was really meaningful; one that I could really take my time with.
Hopefully this will be worth four minutes of your day.
While piano definitely drives this and most of my earlier records, I actually wouldn't call myself a full-on pianist. I play a lot of instruments and the act of playing is where the real fun of composition is for me. You'll likely hear more instruments show up in the future.
As for "Safe & Sound," I definitely went a bit more cinematic on this one. I view my own life as a film-in-progress; the hero's journey, if you will. I listen to film scores all the time and reapply them as soundtracks to my life.
Hopefully you recognize your own story in this piece as well.
Hope you enjoy... and thanks as always for listening.
