It’s been 14 years since I released the first Naked Piano album and I want to pause and celebrate this milestone with you.
You know when you create something worthwhile (a project, painting, story, song, poem, garden, or even a child) – it becomes a part of you. You pour your heart and soul into its creation. It takes on a life of it’s own. Today, I give thanks and celebrate the origins of the Naked Piano – released September 15th, 2003. A date which has forever altered my life.
- The Naked Piano released – September, 2003
- Facebook started – February, 2004
- YouTube started – February, 2005
- Red Sox win World Series (after 86-year drought) – October, 2004
- Hurricane Katrina – August, 2005
- First iPhone – January, 2007
- Obama Elected – November, 2008
- Boston Marathon Bombing – April, 2013
- Trump Elected – November 2016
Hard to believe the iPhone, Facebook and Youtube didn’t even exist when The Naked Piano was released. And you know what? The Naked Piano has more listeners, and earns more today than it ever has. It’s still growing. It actually amazes me – and I’m so thankful and filled with gratitude. After all, it’s what we all desire for our creations – to live on, mature, grow…
So, to celebrate the ‘birth’ of The Naked Piano, download “Renaissance” from that original album FREE, no strings attached! (Renaissance literally means “rebirth”, a contemplative track to help you unwind at the end of the day). If you enjoy the track, I’ve also created a special coupon code to save 50% if you decide to pickup a copy of the original album. Click here to go to the album page. Use coupon code “NP50” at checkout.

Hi Gary!! Congrats on your anniversary of your first Naked Piano album. I remember when you played in Mechanicsburg, you played Black Goose. It was and still is my absolute favorite piano piece and as soon as the first note plays, I know it!! I have a major milestone coming up in April 2018. I will be celebrating my 60th birthday! I am planning to spend most of that year doing all sorts of traveling…..two cruises, a cross country train trip, a trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky OH and Dollywood in TN. Here is to 14 more years of great music ahead for you Gary! Let me know when you do your album releases, you know I like to help you celebrate. HUGS Vicki
