"What Doesn't Break Us . . ." - Solid Gold CD from Daniel Hartzheim

Back in November I wrote a brief Blog posting about a new artist I had just met - Daniel Hartzheim:

November Hartzheim post

I have just secured a copy of his 2008 album, "What Doesn't Break Us . . ." It is stunning. Daniel's dusky voice is as light as a summer breeze. His lyrics offer the listener an invitation to meditate and join a profound inner journey. His keyboard riffs are magical and crystalline and Elton John-like in their complexity. This young artist has an unlimited future.

Let me share with you Daniel's thoughts as outlined on the album jacket:

"I am delighted to present to you this debut album of my most heart-felt songs intended to provide you more of an experience than mere background noise. I would suggest allowing yourself the courtesy of fully engaging your listening experience by putting aside any distraction. Grab a cup of coffee, find a quiet place, relax in your favorite chair, dim the lights and allow the music to take you somewhere familiar, albeit uncommon - someplace deep inside your person where anxiety is calmed and peace ensues. This is the atmosphere from which these songs were composed and into which I hope you enter. Where your peace is, there a song will be also. Enjoy!"

In the following thumbnail overview of his musical career you will find several suggestions for how to access his music on-line as well as places where you can purchase this album. You will be blessed if you do.

Piano is my main instrument, which allows for a lot of keyboard creativity, but I also play some other instruments. I'm mostly from
California but I was born in the Northwest and now am studying music on the east coast! One day I plan to return to sunny California in pursuit of composing music for film.
