PHILIP WESLEY http://www.philipwesley.com/
"For me, playing the piano is the most gratifying form of self expression. Where words fail there is music."
The road to the piano for Philip Wesley has not been a straight path. You could say the piano actually found Philip Wesley. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Philip Wesley grew up in a middle class household heavily involved in sports both soccer and football. An avid fan of music during his youth, Philip surprisingly did not begin playing music until the age of 16 when he received his first guitar as a Christmas present. Enraptured by rock music, Philip dove headlong into independent study. He taught himself to read and write guitar tablature, then poured over guitar books, learned songs note for note, and perfected blistering guitar solos.
When Philip entered college a few years later, he decided to major in Music Therapy. During his studies of music and music theory, he was serendipitously introduced to the solo piano music of David Lanz and was instantly mesmerized by it. At the tender age of 20, Philip began his long relationship with the piano. Once again, Philip poured over music books, this time the piano. "People hear that I didn't start playing the piano until age 20 and they are almost always amazed. I tell people that it's not too late to learn something new. When you have the drive, the passion, the dedication and the curiosity to learn something, new doors will open for you."
Upon graduation from college, Philip worked as a board certified psychiatric music therapist for nearly 10 years. During that time he began writing his own soulful piano music, developing his musical voice, and subsequently releasing his albums. To date he has released 6 albums of solo piano music including
'Heart to Hands' A Solo Piano Retrospective: 2002-2012
'Dark Night of the Soul'
'Comfort & Joy'
'In a Lifetime'
"The piano continues to challenge and inspire me; I can play my whole life and still not master this magnificent beast. I'm not a virtuoso pianist by any stretch of the imagination, just an artist that takes great satisfaction in having a positive impact on people's emotions."
Philip Wesley's music has been featured in radio, TV, and print, and has been nominated by various publications including 'Wind and Wire', 'Solo Piano Publications', and 'Mainly Piano' as some of 'the best of' solo piano albums. His album 'Dark Night of the Soul' continues to be a best seller on the iTunes charts, recently peaking at #1 in his genre. And it continues to be one of the best selling albums on CD Baby, the world's largest independent music store.
LOUIS LANDON http://www.louislandon.com/
Steinway Artist has dedicated his life to music. His passion is for peace. His career has taken him around the world playing a variety of styles with some of the most recognized names in the entertainment industry: classical music for Mikhail Baryshnikov on national and international tours, Latin music with "Pucho and his Latin Soul Brothers" on national and international tours, pop music with Rupert "Pina Colada Song" Holmes on television and national tours, rock & roll with John Hall, opening for "Little Feat" on national tours. For the past 23 years, through his production company, Landon Music, he has written and produced music for film, video, and commercials, including three years of "best plays" and "bloopers" commercials for the National Basketball Association. Not long ago, Landon realized that his music - the solo piano compositions that bring him so much joy and peace, could surely bring joy, and particularly peace, to millions around the world. Louis Landon's mission is to create a more loving and peaceful world by writing, recording and performing, music from the heart. He has released 13 CDs on the LCI record label, his latest entitled "Ten Years - A Peaceful Solo Piano Retrospective." He has just finished recording music for his next CD that will be released in September 2013.
