I just released some new music! I’ve recorded a solo piano song called “To the Sky” written by an artist named Dirk Maassen. It’s a lovely piece, and if you enjoy my own piano compositions, then you’ll love Dirk’s music, too. Check out more of his work here. This is my recording:

Not only was Dirk kind enough to let me record his piece, but he also shared my version with his fans. As a result, my recording is getting up to 2000 plays per day on SoundCloud, and it’s listed as one of the most popular piano tracks on the entire website right now. I’m not going to lie, it’s a great feeling to know that thousands of people are listening to your music.

"To the Sky" has been the fourth most popular piano track on SoundCloud in the last few days.

In addition to my recent popularity on SoundCloud, I have some other very exciting things percolating—things I’ve been working towards for a long time that are finally starting to happen. And I’m entering a new season in my composing. After a year of being in a dry spell, the rains of inspiration are beginning to fall once again.

I’m moving back to Nashville for my sophomore year of college tomorrow.  If the last couple of weeks are any indicator, I believe that I’m headed for one of my most productive years ever.  I can’t wait to see what happens next!
