I’m currently working on a third solo album, and while that process continues, I decided to record a piano version of one of my songs, so I picked “Ocean” from “The Final Scene.” I went for a minimalist approach – no extra instruments or backing vocal harmonies – just piano and one vocal track. It was recorded using an old, Kimball upright piano. The piano needs work, and it’s not in perfect tune by any means, but I find that there’s a beauty in it. A beauty in imperfections. It serves as a reminder of life itself, and I hope that imperfect beauty translates into this song.
*I’m told that the song is currently showing up on iTunes, but their system may be showing an error upon download. It’s available at the other retailers if iTunes isn’t working.
