I am also a pianist. . .

I have studied and played the piano since I was eight years old. But, it wasn’t until the year 2000 that I began to “hear” songs and write them down. Prior to that, composing music was not something I could do, although I had tried many times. I believe it is a gift that was given me, and my desire is to write songs that bring peace and “touch the heart of the listener”. Currently, I have recorded two CD’s. . .

Two of my albums are available for purchase here on my site as physical CD’s: “Creation: A Musical Tapestry”, and “Love Themes” . If you’re looking for a digital download instead, please visit They are available through the CD Baby and iTunes links located in the left sidebar.

The new album, “Mary’s Song” is downloadable only. It is available on CD Baby and iTunes.

“Creation: A Musical Tapestry”

creationThe inspiration for this CD came from a request by my daughter, Candace, to write a song for her personal chef website, “Candace’s Creations”.

I wrote the song, “Creation”, as a piano solo, and took it to Charles M. Barnes’ recording studio to record it for her. After hearing it, he felt it was supposed to be part of an album which ultimately had ten songs–eight songs outlining the Biblical account of creation in Genesis 1, and two from Psalm 23. All the songs are fully orchestrated and are described as sounding like “movie music”. The album was released at a CD Listening Party which was held at the historic Trapnall Hall in Little Rock, Arkansas in July 2010.

Consequently, the “Creation” song was not used by Candace for her website. She later opened her shop, “Chef Candace”, with a website of the same name.

The songs in the “Love Themes” CD were written to depict some of the various emotions of “love”: “Forgiveness”, “Embrace”, “Kiss”, “Kindness”,  “Hope”, and “Love” to name some of the titles. Of the ten songs on the CD, six of the songs are piano solos, and the remaining four are orchestrated by Charles M. Barnes. All have been described as “peaceful”, “soothing”, “calms the soul”.
