Pieces of Forever is dedicated to my parents with all my love, John and Carol, who have now passed on.
My mother was my first Classical piano teacher. My father played Country Guitar, and Harmonica. In this album to honor them, the two genres intertwine. This album is about remembering the lives of my parents, what they taught me, and their love. It is about feeling deep appreciation for having experienced my journey with them, every single moment of it, even those that were the most difficult. All these times we all have in life are now part of us, and they are eternal. Our 'Pieces of Forever'.
