Concert Weekend with Robin Spielberg

My third Valley View Concert of the season was with Robin Spielberg this last Saturday, 4/25/15.  Robin is on tour promoting and showcasing her new album, "Another Time, Another Place" and I was thrilled to have her join me for our April concert.  Robin's music is powerful, expressive, moving, uplifting, and she is the most hysterical storyteller.  She had the audience rolling in the aisles with laughter and I was so inspired by her.  She wowed the crowd, and our improv at the end of the show was one of my favorites I've done.  It just flowed so beautifully.  Thanks Robin for coming out to join me!!!   Interested in coming to a Valley View concert?  The next show is Saturday 5/30 with Chad Lawson.  Come join us!!

Concert Weekend with Lisa Downing

Lisa Downing came to town last weekend for a big hang and fun concert weekend.  She had never visited Salt Lake City before, so she flew in on Thursday so we could have time to go sightseeing and have some fun on top of our big concert night.   I picked her up from the airport, we came back to my house to hang out for a while and then we went sightseeing through downtown Salt Lake City.   I took her to Temple Square, to the State Capitol Building, and up and down historic South Temple street.   The next day we enjoyed breakfast in the sunshine on the back deck while the piano was tuned, took a nice canyon drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon, and Little Cottonwood Canyon, and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset while we ate dinner on the front porch.  A wonderful, relaxing day, just hanging out.

Undercurrent - Behind The Songs: Synesthesia

I wrote Synesthesia while I was on tour in the summer of 2013. I was in Boston, at M. Steinert & Sons, and it was pouring rain that day, so we asked them if we could hang out for a couple of hours before the show started. They had the most incredible Steinway D on stage, it was perhaps the best Steinway I'd ever played. I bonded and connected with that piano immediately. The music just came to me, and I composed this song while sitting in that hall waiting for our show to start. I deeply felt the music, I experienced it, I saw it, it moved me. It was a whole body experience that I'll never forget. Synesthesia means "a sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality, as when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color."

Stepping Stones is about all the paths we take in life, based on the decisions we make. Each decision we make, sets us on a new path.  Each path leads us to new decisions and new experiences.   We are in a constant state of progression and the stepping stones lead us along the way
