ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Waters Edge is Jason's second solo piano album. Like his first highly acclaimed album 'Storyteller', Waters edge is full of atmospheric melodies designed to captivate and inspire. Described by some as 'visual' Jason's music will underscore feelings, memories and experiences of your life, much like film music underscores on screen action.

Waters Edge itself can be seen as a metaphor for life - the anxiety, expectation, joy, fear and excitement of looking out over a huge ocean is something we can all relate to in our day to day life. This music is sure to articulate those feelings and leave you feeling inspired and motivated to live life to the full!

A must if you enjoy artists such as Einaudi, Enya, David Nevue and George Winston.

From MainlyPiano
"Water’s Edge" is the second full-length release from British composer/pianist/teacher Jason Boyd, following 2010’s "Storyteller." The nine original tracks are a combination of solo piano and piano with keyboard accompaniment (including atmospheric sounds). Some of the tracks are dark and dramatic while others are softer and more melodic, but they are all interesting and colorful. Boyd’s versatility in his composing and playing styles will serve him well. It is interesting to note that after completing his studies at Sussex University and The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Boyd taught piano and keyboard before accepting the post as Head of Music at Bexhill College.

"Water’s Edge" opens with the title track. It begins with an intriguing keyboard prelude that is as haunting as it is beautiful. The piano then picks up the tempo while keyboard string washes add colors that create an interesting contrast to the bell-like opening and closing phrases. I really like this one! “Dawn Call” is much more intense and has a compelling energy. The heavy bass chords on the piano add weight to the lighter, more fanciful right hand. Additional electronic instrumentation makes this piece very dark, mysterious and edgy. “A Glance” goes in an entirely different direction as a lighthearted solo piano waltz with a rubato tempo that feels almost flirtatious. “White Horses” begins with the sound of crashing waves and flowing water. The piano enters playing a rhythmic pattern in the deep bass that sets a dark, dramatic mood. Other than the nature sounds, this one is solo piano and also very moody - I like it! “Twilight” is again on the darker side, but in a much gentler way. The rolling broken chords in the bass create a soothing backdrop for the melancholy melody - very effective. “Lonely Path” is another favorite. This time the rolling broken chords suggest moving forward while the soulful melody seems to express longing and loss. I’d love to play this one! “Deep Blue” opens with the sound of children playing in water - probably the surf. The slow flow of the left hand suggests the ebb and flow of the ocean while the calm right hand conveys a peaceful tranquility. In the middle, electronic instruments enter to enhance the mood while the sound of the rolling surf mesmerizes and gradually fades out.

"Water’s Edge" could be a little more experimental than some people like, but if you enjoy exploring different musical approaches a bit out of the mainstream, this is a good choice. Recommended!
