Album Notes
I started playing the piano when I was 5 and learnt to play the piano mainly by ear. When I became a Christian and began to journey with the Lord, my heart began to explode with these songs. Dwelling in the Glory is a piano solo album that took me years to write and record. It was written to touch the heart, bring peace to the soul, and allow the listener to go deeper into the presence of God. The album is a culmination of songs that reflects Jesus and his Kingdom. In these songs you will hear the stories of the bible come alive and experience moments of peace, strength, love, honor, kindness, joy, and much more.
I’m honored to be the Lord’s musician, playing the piano for the glory is His name.
I hope that this piano album will be one you cherish and listen to for many years to come and that God would speak to your heart as you listen to the music.
I’m so grateful that you have this album in your hands, I’ve spent a lifetime working for it.
Blessings, love, peace, favor, and honor.
Your pianist,
Mark Shian

From MainlyPiano
"Dwelling in the Glory" is a powerful first full-length album by pianist/ composer/ singer-songwriter/ recording engineer/ and video producer Mark Shian. A very accomplished pianist, Mark plays the ten original piano solos on the album with passion and heartfelt sincerity. In the liner notes of the CD, he explains: “'Dwelling in the Glory' is a piano album that took me years to write and produce. My dream for the album was that it would express the fullness of God and his Kingdom. That people who listened to it would sense his peace and presence, his creativity and power, his grace and kindness, his greatness and majesty, his humility and sacrifice, and mostly his love.”

Born in Malaysia, Shian started playing the piano at the age of 5. He began composing music and playing for his local church when he was sixteen. After completing his Bachelor’s Degree in computer science, Shian moved to England to serve on the worship team at Newlife Church. While he was there, he studied audio engineering and music and video production. In 2012, he moved to Kansas City, MO for a four-year ministry course at the International House of Prayer University. After graduating, Shian decided to pursue a full-time ministry by founding Reason To Live, a music ministry that is focused on drawing people to Christ. 

The album begins with “Dwelling in the Glory - Part 1.” Spontaneously created during one of his classes at the Bible college, Shian felt that the music was a “download from heaven.” Starting out with a gentle, simple melody, it gradually builds in both strength and passion - a gorgeous opening! Feeling that there was more to the piece, Mark composed “Part 2” to express something even deeper: “This is the glory of God, not only peaceful but also powerful and triumphant.” “Creator of the Universe” expresses grace and majesty in a style that is masterful and elegant. The dynamic and very powerful “Man of Sorrows” tells of the journey of Jesus Christ from his birth to the cross. Dark and turbulent through much of the piece, the last section is mournful and quiet. “Watching the Stars” is much softer and more pensive, and recalls Mark’s childhood when he would often sit outside his house at night, looking at the night sky and dreaming about his future. I really like the peaceful nature as well as the dreamy, emotional expression of this one. “Sound of Many Waters” reflects on the many forms of water from peaceful streams, to rain, to the powerful oceans and how the voice of God is heard in the sounds of each. Like the waters themselves, parts of this piece are tranquil and others are “big” and swirling. At 9 1/2 minutes, “The Road to Emmaus” is the longest piece on the album and is about our life journey with Jesus. The title refers to the road where Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection and that they did not recognize him. Deeply emotional and often very poignant, it’s my favorite piece on the album. The album closes with “The New Heaven & Earth” and looks forward with hope and anticipation to Jesus’ return aand “a new heaven and earth.” With an emotional mixture of joy, strength and triumph, it’s a very moving ending to an excellent first album.

Mark Shian is off to a great start in his music career, and I’m sure that "Dwelling in the Glory" will get a lot of attention from the various music communities as well as in Christian circles.
