Music Things

When I am down, music never fails to lift me up.  One of the greatest gifts God ever gave us is music.  I would like to give away some of my CDs for free to anyone who is interested.  If you would like a free digital copy of my latest CD, An Unexpected Journey, please send me a message below with your email, and I will send you a code to download it.  Or if you prefer a physical CD, send me your address, and I will mail you one.  🙂  With so many negative things everywhere, I just wanted to offer one small positive thing from my corner of the world.

Friday Music

If you haven’t heard Benny Andersson play the piano, you are missing something wonderful.  He is the Swedish composer behind ABBA, Chess, Mamma Mia!, and Kristina fran Duvemala.

His album, Piano, was released in 2017, and is on near constant repeat in my house and in my car.  Melodies and piano, simple and complex all at the same time.  Sparkling, brooding, hopeful,  full of room for the imagination to run wild.  Music that makes me want to sit down and play the piano immediately.

Do yourself a favor and get a copy.  Enjoy, and have a wonderful, blessed weekend.

Love, Lisa

Playing Your Heart Out, Even If No-One’s Listening

1037

As a musician, it’s sometimes hard to perform your best when no one seems to be enjoying it.  But yet, some of my best times playing music are when it’s just me and God, the stillness of a room, the banging of the piano keys, the not worrying about the performance, just talking in the best way I can to Jesus.  To me, the best music is that way….a heartfelt conversation, a pouring out of emotion and feeling and angst and joy and whatever else makes up these human hearts that we have.  And all of that is not dependent on crowds or audiences or attention.  The One who made us is always listening, always attentive, always ready to hear what we are saying or trying to say.  Thank you God.  Blessings, Lisa
