I am thrilled to share my newest collaboration with the incredibly talented pianist and composer, Leiki Ueda.
This came about when I was preparing to record my latest album, "Spring." Before the pandemic, it would have been a far reach to suggest recording an album with someone on the other side of the world. But just like everyone, musicians had to get creative and adapt to the changing times. I found Leiki through his wonderful YouTube Channel here and fell in love with his classical renditions of all my favorite songs. Then my jaw dropped when I saw that he had already arranged one of the songs I had intended for the album and it just seemed meant to be. I asked if he would record this song with me and he not only accepted my proposal, but his enthusiasm and insightful attention to detail made this project one of my favorite recordings I've ever done. I still can't believe that we've never actually met in person! Yet, I am honored to call him a new friend.
So it is my pleasure to introduce you to Leiki Ueda, who arranged, mixed, and mastered this rendition of "So This is Love" from Disney's Cinderella.
