“Elegy for a Solitary Year” is the 4th release (10th single) I have recorded in 2020, alone in my apartment— a series of sonic companions for these terrifying, uncertain, and isolated times.

With the year’s end, we reflect not only the death of those from Covid 19, but also the death of life as we knew it. The death of dreams, businesses, long term plans, relationships, love, and the carefree regard of daily social activities we always took for granted.
There will be no getting back to “like it was before.”
We will carry the impact of 2020 with us for the rest of our lives.

This solo piano piece is a lament for all the deaths this year, as well as the death of our old selves.

But in this strange chaos hides a deeper beauty. A profound reset, an awakening. to what matters now. Permission to make changes, re-invent, manifest an entirely new magic.

You have broken free of the old days.
What do you want the rest of your life to be about NOW?

Thank you immensely for your support this year! It all goes to helping me survive, as most of my income has ceased with the pandemic shutdown. Please continue to help artists. <3
