It is my pleasure to announce the official release of my new solo piano album ‘Paintings on Piano’. It has taken a little longer than hoped for due to the fact that I adventurously decided to perform each piece, and design/illustrate the artwork – so it’s a real homegrown personal album.
It’s also been one of the most enjoyable projects this year, though found it quite unusual composing without a film, so I invented mini films in my head for each track instead! In brief, it’s a collection of short stories told on solo piano, classical in style, with a filmic edge, and a sense of journey. Except ‘Believe in Me’ & ‘Be Someone’ – both instrumentals of ‘STARLING’ songs.
You can hear snippets in iTunes, but if you liked the style of the recent Hyundai advert score (which is where many of you have found me), then this album has elements of that style throughout, so I hope it’s up your street.
Here’s the link to iTunes:
(It’d be lovely to get a few comments and ratings on iTunes if you get a chance too thanks). Also available on Amazon soon.
The full album story, credits, and biography are available to view on my album page: http://www.vanessajamesmusic.com/albums/
There’s also a Vanessa James Music facebook page just open now too, so ‘like’ to get involved!
Thanks to all you guys for the support and encouragement you’ve given me this far, I dedicate this album to you, so hope you like it!
