Soundtrack To My Life: July 2015 Edition
I’m a piano player and for as long as I can remember, David Foster has been my favorite songwriter, producer, arranger and musician.
If the name doesn’t sound familiar, trust me when I say that you know his music. In fact, his music is interwoven into the soundtracks of most of our lives.
Artists like Céline Dion, Michael Bublé, Chicago, Barbara Streisand, Jackie Evancho, Kenny G, Josh Groban, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Seal, Rod Stewart and Andrea Bocelli – just to name a few – have all, in one way or another benefited from the songwriting/producing/arranging genius of David Foster.
He’s got a signature style and has managed to stay relevant for several decades. I’m especially fond of his solo projects. My favorite one is called “Rechordings” – a collection of some of the greatest hits he’s written all recorded with new arrangements featuring him on the piano.
Whenever I need to relax, calm down, think or work on a project that mission-critical, his music is at the center of all of it. David Foster’s music gets top billing on the soundtrack to my life.
It’s hard to pick a favorite song but I would have to say that “Water Fountain” from his “Symphony Sessions” album is one of my favorites!
If you’re in need of some great instrumental music David Foster is your guy!
Be well, make it a great day and happy listening!
