“Solo Piano I” (2023 re-recorded release)

My re-release of the original 2009 “Solo Piano” album is now available at your favorite streaming/ download platforms. The original 2009 release of”Solo Piano” had some of my favorite compositions. Unfortunately, I have not been happy with the piano it was recorded on or the recording process in general. I have re-recorded all the tracks and have added 1 additional new bonus track (Waltz for Cathy).

Here is the music video for “Waltz for Cathy”:


“Friends Until the End”

Electronic New Age EP

“Solo Piano V”

My music comes from my heart. It is the way I express my deepest feelings and emotions. Music is also my therapy. It is a way for me to focus on what is important in life. A way to relax and give myself direction. My hope is that this music will do the same for you as you listen and let it flow through your mind and soul.

“Solo Piano IV”

The music on this CD come from them. As you listen to the songs, think of the people who have influenced and touched your lives!

“Solo Piano III” (2017)

This CD is dedicated to my mother Zella Shaw Atkinson (1917 – 1992) who would have turned 100 years old this year. She had a great love for music. Being handicapped, she was not able to play an instrument herself but she was a great encouragement to me in my pursuit of music and piano and I will always be thankful to her for that. Here is a song from the CD called “Waltz for Zella” that I composed for her:

“Solo Piano III” is available for purchase at iTunes, Amazon and other locations.
