NEW QUIET PIANO HYMNS RELEASE! 

Greenville, SC (9/1/2022) - I'm so happy to announce the release of my very first solo piano album, a special project titled Quiet Piano Hymns. These are some of my favorite classic hymns & gospel songs that I first learned as a boy and have treasured now for over 50 years as a church pianist.
