I created this album to help you to find your own “Quietening” … the place
that you go to just for yourself. Musically, it is gentle, soothing and serene, but
also melodic. It has become my most successful album so far.
The Quietening was created during several writing retreats in some of the places
close to my home on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland that most inspire me - the ancient
forests of the Bunya Mountains, a mud brick cottage on a hill in the Noosa Hinterland,
watching the sunrise over the Glasshouse Mountains and in my home studio overlooking
I call my album Lifted music to “calm the mind and lift the spirit” … music
for Solo Piano which is relaxing in mood and yet gently uplifting and energising
at the same time.
The creative journey to produce Lifted began in Hawaii, where as well as the
beautiful scenery, I was inspired by the lovely harmonics of traditional Hawaiian
music. I also composed music in the vast red deserts of Arizona, before the album
came to completion closer to home high up in the Sunshine Coast's picturesque Blackall
My new album In This Moment contains the most calm, gentle and intimate music
I have ever composed. Each piece maintains a serene stillness while a lilting melody
floats above. It is meant embody the sound and feeling of pure love – love in all
This is music that opens your heart and creates a feeling of love and peacefulness
whenever it is played. Music that inspires you to dream, to reflect... and to feel.
Music for the Moment.
