Stunning and soulful solo piano Eric Bikales – Follow Your Heart

Stunning and soulful solo piano Eric Bikales – FOLLOW YOUR HEART:  Before I even start writing, please take a moment to witness the dynamic playing style that Eric performs on his song “Miles To Go” from the new album…

As you can see & hear, Eric’s touch on the keyboard is full-bodied and vibrantly alive… absolutely timeless, and you’ll be hitting the “replay” button many times, I can guarantee it.

I’m not sure if it was his upbringing in Kansas City, but he plays with a love of life that is infectious for the listener… that’s especially true on tunes like the 2:19 “The Meeting”… simply beautiful, folks.

Eric’s solo piano isn’t just “stunning”, it’s wrapped in lush envelopes of soul, especially on tunes like the opener, “Clockwork”… his strident, yet sensitive, style, will capture your heart forever… I just LOVE this tune! 

The high-end harmonics and overtones that Eric coaxes from his magical keyboard style are nothing short of perfection, and get very high marks from me, especially on tunes like “The Closer Your Get” – “tasty” is the keyword here; in fact, this is the song that “really did it” for me… the highlight of Eric’s amazing keyboard work is his ability to speak to the listener through his piano, and I definitely heard what he was communicating… my personal favorite of the dozen tunes Eric offers up for your aural enjoyment and adventure. 

I give him a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this fine album.  Get more information on Eric’s website.         Rotcod Zzaj
