As an independent artist, the idea of releasing an album can be overwhelming. I record the albums myself in my own studio, I hire the talent to add their expertise whether it's the violinist or the graphic designer. And while I don't have the resources a major label has, sometimes an album finds its path to the right people. This, fortunately, was the case with The Chopin Variations. Perhaps it's the allure of Chopin. Perhaps it was the cover that peaked interest, or simply the features on NPR's All Things Considered & CBS Sunday Morning brought the attention to millions. Truth be told, I never imagined this would be the case as an indie artist. I'm so incredibly grateful for everyone that supported this album from downloading it on iTunes or sitting behind a mic of a national public radio broadcast. Thank you. Thank you.
