Fresh inspiring solo piano Brian Golden – Once A Child

Fresh inspiring solo piano Brian Golden – ONCE A CHILD:  During these challenging times, nothing could be more fresh and inspiring than Brian’s solo piano work on his latest release… the entire album is available to listen to on YouTube…

When you SUBSCRIBE to Brian’s YouTube channel, as I did, you will be able to watch many other splendid videos as well.. like the one below, from an earlier album…

What truly stands out in Brian’s playing is his ability to make uncomplicated compositions so powerful, as on the song “Simplicity“… this 6:42 piano gem is a wonderful example of the magic that can be realized in the hands of a master player… I predict this tune will be nominated for (and WIN) awards!

You’ll feel like Brian is talking to you on a personal level as you listen to the brightly energetic tones he creates on the 2:57 “Soliloquy” – one of my favorite solo piano songs (yet) in 2020; I predict this tune will be getting HUGE airplay from DJ’s of all stripes this year.

The mood Brian creates on the closer, “No Answers“, is somewhat sad, but (at the same time) full of hope for a better future for all of us… his pacing is nothing but perfection, and he will elevate your spirits far above the fray on this beautiful song!

The imagery you will draw from the opening piece, “Song For A Ballerina“, is precious and pleasant… even if you’ve never thought of yourself as a dancer, by the end of this 5:34 jewel, you will be up and cavorting gleefully around your living room… truly beautiful music.

On my second listen through all the piano beauty Brian provides for your ears, it was clear that my choice for personal favorite would be “Shallow Water“… if you’re a true piano lover, you will find yourself hitting “replay” on this magnificent and full-bodied tune.  An instant love affair, to be sure!

I give Brian a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this tantalizing solo piano treasure.  Get more information about the album and the artist on Brian’s website; you can also purchase the album on his site.              Rotcod Zzaj
