What critics and fans are saying:
***** (5 out of 5 stars) "Light of a New Day opens with the title song, a gently upbeat and optimistic beginning. “First Impressions” has a warm and tender melody that is strong enough to support lyrics, although none are needed. I really like “Not Even the Rain,” a poignant ballad that expresses a variety of emotions - beautiful! “Lake Placid” conveys a calming stillness that soothes deeply. I love “Earthshine,” a lively and passionate piece that uses the deep bass of the piano to great effect. One of the main themes is quiet and flowing and alternates with a theme that is stronger and more powerful - a great piece! “Season After Season” returns to warm musical gentleness and optimism. I also really like the grace and sincerity of “Forgiveness,” which seems to come straight from the heart. “Emily’s Lullaby” is as sweet and loving as they come and is suitable for any age! My other favorite (besides “Earthshine”) is “Until Tomorrow Comes.” Propelled by a quiet intensity, it could be a passionate love song or the reflections of a solitary soul at the piano late at night. Either way, it’s exceptional! I hope this is just the first of a series of releases from him! Recommended!"
