The best kept secret in music


"Solo Piano Publications"

“Dreams Come True” is pianist/composer David J. Sutton’s first CD, and what a beauty it is! The first ten tracks are piano solos, and the remaining five are orchestrated - four are orchestrations of the piano solos. I usually prefer solo piano, but the orchestrated pieces are so full and vibrant that I actually like them a bit better. The piano is still prominent in the orchestrations, but the other instrumentation truly enhances the music and brings it to life. Yanni’s influence is obvious, but Sutton’s style is his own. The music ranges from quiet and peaceful to the bigger and more boisterous “Standing With the Rain.” The varied styles keep the CD interesting, but the changes aren’t jarring or distracting.

The CD opens with “Changing Dreams,” an intense and somewhat melancholy piece. The title track is one that comes in two versions. The piano solo is one of my favorite tracks. It has a sweet melody and a gently flowing rhythm, and obviously comes from the heart. The orchestrated version adds strings, voices, and other instruments that make the piece even “dreamier” and more poignant. “For You My Love” is another favorite and also comes in two flavors. Warm, tender, and very passionate as a solo, the orchestration deepens the emotions and really makes them sing. Wow! “Forgive and Forget” opens with an almost Mozartian feel in both versions, but the orchestration feels more carefree in the earlier sections and more intense as the piece builds. The orchestration is my favorite track on this CD. “Shadows” is another favorite. Darker and more introspective, the quiet melody conveys a lot of emotion. I also really like both versions of “Standing With the Rain,” which is made up of three movements that segue into each other. The first is fairly lighthearted and joyful, but then the mood shifts to stormy; in the third movement, the storm breaks and the sun comes back out. In the orchestration, the colorful music becomes even more intense and the sound is much bigger. I think Yanni’s influence is the most apparent on this track. Many instruments surround the piano, including electric guitars, strings, and weather sounds. This is a great piece in either version, but the orchestration will quicken your pulse in the middle! There really isn’t a weak track on this CD, so treat your ears to this very promising new artist!

Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, let's forget about the stereotypical poor humble musician upbringing, that's simply not David's background. Also ignore the all too common "growing up disadvantage" this simply doesn't apply in David's case. David Sutton simply has had it all from the beginning. Talent, good looks, glowing red hair and born into a thriving children's clothing apparel business owned by his family located throughout New York and New Jersey of which he manages and has significantly added more revenue and financial growth to the bottom line.

While his parents (no single parents here) insisted on highly rated academic standards, David followed this intensive schooling regimen but strayed slightly due to his musical ear and start playing the piano during lunch break and successfully composed his first song.

With family money and backing plus moderate fame (winning American Idol Online) David has enrolled and is currently attending the prestigious Julliard School of Music where he is studying a wide range or related subjects, namely music production and music theory amongst others.

While David's pedigree is rich and it is known he comes from a wealthy upbringing, he like Donald Trump has not rested on the families laurels but has stretched the envelope of success and is on the threshold of building his own musical legacy and empire like the Donald
