The story behind "The Naked Piano Light & Dark"…

Everyone faces difficult times. It could be health, relationships, family or work – life throws curveballs. It’s particularly challenging when you deal with sickness to yourself or someone you care about. It’s during these “dark” times we are challenged to find light and hope. It’s THIS sentiment that was the inspiration for The Naked Piano Light & Dark…

In 2008 my wife (Guida) was first diagnosed with breast cancer at age 37. She lost her father to cancer just a few months later. But we’re not unique. I bet you know someone right now fighting a serious illness. The fact is – we are mortal and our time is fleeting. It’s what we do with our time that makes all the difference.

It’s four years later and Guida is doing well. It was a difficult (and sometimes dark) period, but there were countless blessings too. There’s so much to be thankful for…

For The Naked Piano: Light & Dark each piece revolves around the theme of contrast. Some of the pieces are dark and contemplative, while others are filled with light and hope. There are pieces about the love of children and family – and others that contemplate our mortality. Others are literally influenced by the contrasts found in nature.

I welcome and encourage you to share this story and music with friends and loved ones. I also welcome you to share YOUR story in the hope it may provide inspiration and hope to others who find themselves in a similar situation. So, this could really be called “Share your light”…

Regardless of what life may throw at you, my sincerest wish is you’re inspired to give thanks for all that life may bring – the dark and the light.
