Album update

We have officially decided on a studio for recording the next album and plan on starting the recording process in July.

It's looking like there will be 15 tracks in total:

5 guitar and string-based pieces
7 hammered dulcimer and string-based pieces
a piano and cello piece
a solo piano interlude
and a string-quartet piece

It's coming together nicely.  Exciting! 


Burijji video: featured in next months newsletterNext month
I look forward to sharing a new piano and video piece.
It was inspired by the first Japanese island at the Chicago Botanic Gardens and will be on the next album.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.  If you know anyone in Chicago please feel free to forward this newsletter and pass on the word about our April 23 performance.  It's going to feature the amazing

Sophie Webber on cello and some brand new music.

If you're in Chicago... see you soon!
