REFLECTING ON 52 MINUTES OF PURE PIANO PLEASURE You are invited to share in the official launch of Mish's newest CD!
'Pure Piano - Reflection'
Mish's intention for making a solo-piano CD of original works came from a strong desire to send healing music to a person living with a serious, life-threatening illness. This friend of a friend had heard and loved the sound of Mish's piano creations when she is "playing out her soul." Hence was the birth of 'Pure Piano - Reflection'. Impressively different to anything Mish has created before, capturing improvised moments, into a therapeutic CD of soothing, emotive sounds.
Please join Mish in the celebration of her new CD! There will be wine, champagne and light snacks to accompany a live performance of the CD in the beautiful, new space that is now The Channon Gallery (next to The Channon Tavern). Doors will be open from 5.30pm on Friday October 14th, for a 6pm start. CDs will be available on the night for only $15, and are also available at Music Bizarre, Lismore for $20.
"I find this CD very easy to listen to. The mellow, yet uplifting mood is a great backdrop for work and play. A beautiful presentation of almost-familiar themes and variations." - George Urbaszek, Bass Player and Music Educator.

Response to application for airplay:

Well Hello, Hello I must say your music is great art to the ears. Now your song "In Love With Love" is alittle too country for The Que 98.2. However your songs "I Must Be Wishful Thinking" and "See We're Living In The Same World", would be perfect for the station. Nice, Singing voice, great instrumentation and very well organized compositions. Keep up the good work. Jason (Airomee Wind)
