FEATURED ARTIST AT NEW AGE CD | MATTHEW LABARGE
Matthew’s solo piano album, Music From The Long Quiet was released Oct 1, 2021. It’s an album of contemplation, written and composed in the lock-down period of 2020. It’s a story of making the quiet good.
“I got my first record player in 1972 or 73 and was an album listener as opposed to a singles listener right from the start. Music took over my life. For many years I listened to every album I got my hands on at least a few dozen times. When I think of great albums, I don’t think as much about an individual piece as I do the role it plays in the unfolding of the album.
Each album I’ve made tells a story. I love having a beginning, a series of contemplations or transformations or something, and an end. The individual pieces are chapters of a novel.
Ever since that first record player, music has played a seminal role in my life. My greatest hope is to create music that speaks to someone the way that music speaks to me.”
Music From The Long Quiet: Nine tracks of completely gentle, calming, solo piano that is guaranteed to return you to a place of peace and solace. – Dyan Garris
