DB has an extraordinary ability to capture the very essence of Charleston in an almost story telling, musical soliloquy. Her music soothes, relaxes and inspires in a deeply moving way.
The true brilliance of these compositions lies within the improvisations. The lines become blurred between blues, jazz, and classical and are done in a most intelligent and heartfelt display. Her style is really a progressive New-Age, to just sneaking in the back door of jazz and blues.
ÂI have always felt as though I was taking a journey, when I sit down at the piano.Â DB states, Âand I like my music to take my fans down the path less traveled, beckon the imagination and intertwine a few surprises.Â
The title track, ÂCharlestonÂ creates melodic, heart warming thoughts of historic Charleston and is destined to be a favorite among fans. ÂMarket StreetÂ boasts of some blues and the variety of mood and colors experienced there while ÂMagnolia PlantationÂ is honored by a rich melody that lets you soar in its beauty.
DB is an independent artist who is uniquely gifted as a composer and pianist but upon a closer look, finds that she is good at making up compositions off the cuff as well. ÂThe challenge lies with the fact that I often canÂt remember what I played after the fact and itÂs tough to transcribe,Â she laughingly admits.
DB has created her own style with an unforgettable musical passion.
Tread on the path less traveled and journey with DB to the very heart of Charleston.
