Solo Piano Concerts
Infusing rhythmic power and melodic appeal into each original piece, Sowash has a knack for capturing the essence of the moment. Sharing humorous and touching stories from his life experiences between soulful performances, he forges even greater connections with listeners. Each concert contains a few recognizable standards, hymns or folk songs, yet he is most known for instilling feelings that words leave untouched into his original compositions, playing with broad strokes and structured abandon.
All my concerts include a few familiar jazz standards, but I most enjoy reaching for feelings that words leave untouched in my original compositions. My stories are also an integral part of every performance which sets up a rapport with listeners. (I’m like a singer-songwriter except that my “lyrics” are between songs.) I talk about humorous or touching experiences as a parent, gigging musician, sailor, horseman, nature lover and traveler. It all connects to my melodies making for an intimate connection with my listeners. - Bradley Sowash
