Fun with Music

We've really enjoyed having a couple months to settle here in Victoria, BC. One thing we've all appreciated having more time for is music. The day after we arrived, I rented a piano keyboard from a local music store, and finished putting out recordings of some new pieces I started writing back in Bali. These involve piano, as well as my voice, and other ambient sounds. Have a listen below, or... Read More

Do you want a portable piano?

It's exciting to see the progress on the Groove digital piano I've been working on for the past several months. The first prototype should be finished very soon! We decided not to make it fold after all, but it will separate neatly into three sections that can fit inside carry-on luggage.

I’m in Joseph!

Last week, on a whim, I decided to try out for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the South Jordan Community Theater. I sang, "I Can Go the Distance" from Hercules for my audition, and made callbacks. I haven't been in a musical since Jr. High school (unles... Read More
