Sky is a trained pianist of nearly 40 years and a singer-songwriter with ten self-produced albums. His songs, reminiscent of Jason Mraz, John Mayer, or John Lennon, are often conceived in and captured from dreams. Originally learning piano from Beethoven and the Suzuki method, Sky studied jazz, blues, funk, boogie-woogie, American songbook, and New Age styles from George Winston, Keith Jarrett, and Dr. John. Sky's lyrics are intimate and uplifting, reflecting his own inward journey.
Inspired by dreams of rising ocean levels in a time of global transformation, Sky Nelson's self-produced and performed album follows a journey through uplifting highs and meditative lows. Featuring "Let Love Run the Show (Live in Love)" and "There is Nothing Big in Playing Small," adapted from "A Return to Love" by Marianne Williamson.
Each solo piano improvisation was developed out of about 60 seconds of pre-planning. The melody and chord changes were sketched, then I clicked record and did a single take. Wonderful music for relaxation and sleep.
