Joining The Dots to release album by composer/pianist Stanton Lanier

ATLANTA-based composer and pianist Stanton Lanier has an instrumental album, 'A Thousand Years', released through Joining The Dots in May. Said Lanier, "The idea to interweave Scripture inspired piano compositions with unique arrangements of timeless classical and hymn melodies had been in my mind for several years. I wanted this recording to have the enduring simplicity and intimacy that comes through solo piano. In a few special places, I also wanted to feature the gentle presence of two of my favourite artists, Noah Wilding singing angelic vocals and Jill Haley playing English horn. The creative process was an amazing journey, as music from seven renowned hymns and five of the world's greatest classical composers (Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart and Pachelbel) were blended with 11 original works. I was stretched out of my comfort zone more than ever before. Yet, at the same time, the studio became a refuge more than ever before. This resulted in fresh experiences of joy, peace and hope from deep down inside that I am excited to share with you."
