ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thad Fiscella's music is inspired by his life, family, and relationship with the Lord. His songs are simple, heart felt expressions of personal convictions, raw emotions, and experiences throughout his life. Many people describe Fiscella's award winning music as inspiring instrumental music from the heart that is both peaceful and passionate. Music styled around classical implementation, but very much juxtaposed with contemporary sounds and hints of jazz. Fiscella's music is created for peaceful relaxing, but to also draw listeners in by painting musical portraits and telling stories through beautiful and uplifting music. Fiscella's mission is to serve the Lord and to be His vessel, to see the gospel shared, and to see people's lives changed through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ. His passion is to use his gifts and talents to glorify the Lord, draw others to God, and help create an atmosphere that provides the listener with relaxing meditative music to unwind and relax from the stress of every day life. Other than writing music, Fiscella's current focus in ministry is with Youth/College students and leading worship.

Musically, Fiscella is often compared to musical greats George Winston, Jim Brickman, Yiruma, and David Nevue. His songs often combine a unique rhythmic sense (particularly his use of rubato) with melodic simplicity and counterpoint. The fusion often produces a particularly delicate sound in the balance between melody and harmony, and also rhythmically creates a soft and interesting harmonic feel, especially in his use of 12/8 time signature.

Originally from Ottumwa, Iowa, Fiscella currently resides in Missouri, and is married with three beautiful children. He has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Music. He has been writing and composing music from an early age, beginning with whistling and singing, and eventually writing music for piano and orchestra by age 12. Fiscella grew up listening and studying classical music, which typically resounds some way in his music. He studied piano, violin, guitar, and percussion throughout his school years, and is currently focused on the piano and digital instruments. Fiscella has been involved in ministry and ministry projects for 15+ years, including teaching, leading worship, and youth ministry. His passion is to serve the Lord in whatever capacity needed. Fiscella's original intention for composing and creating music was for background music, or for times of meditation or relaxation, especially for his three young children. His music is designed for a time of calm easy listening or events where background music is needed. Fiscella’s music has been played all over the world, in day cares, spa’s, retail stores, and business offices, for art shows, dinner parties, banquets, and weddings.

Grand Design is Fiscella's first solo project which started it all. Released in 2006, musically it is a blend of simplicity and technique; melodic, and at times impressionistic, containing fan favorite songs Letters of Grace, Mother's Devotion, and Remember Me. VAST is Fiscella’s second solo piano album, released in June of 2008. Fiscella's most popular album to date, including songs Angel Kisses, For Ross, and Long Awaited Love, It is also full of emotionally charged songs, filled with simple and thoughtful melodies, but even more relaxing and calming than previous and later albums. Love Without Words is Fiscella's third album, released in 2010, it was a project to honor his family and 10 years of marriage to his wife. Many of these songs are inspired by his family and friends, and the emotion of the music follows suit. Impromptus, Vol. 1 is Fiscella's fourth CD, and is entirely different than anything Fiscella has done before. Impromptus, Vol. 1 is a CD of his works of improvisation and simply sitting down and recording what is currently on his heart and mind. These recordings are more classical in nature, and because they are impromptus, some imperfections are present. Fiscella's fifth CD The Road Home contains some of his most popular work to date including songs Beauty of Grace, First Dance, and At the Cross. The Road Home is one of the defining CD's that brings the description of Fiscella's music that it can be listened to and enjoyed at any time and any place, "music that fits your life". Fiscella's sixth release, Peace, Comfort, and Joy: A Sacred Christmas, is Fiscella's first attempt at a Christmas release. He intended this CD to be a reflection of his style, but to also keep the overall presence and musical intentions of the original Christmas hymns recorded. Fiscella's Christmas CD is very relaxing and as one listener stated "It just feels like Christmas". Fiscella' s other intention with this Christmas album is to provide the listener with a CD they can sing along with to their favorite Traditional Christmas songs. Free to Fly, is Thad's 7th album, released in 2014. It is dedicated to his father, who passed away during the recording of the album. Fiscella draws from that emotional experience while resting in his Heavenly Father for peace and comfort during a difficult time in his life. Fiscella's newest album Through the Rain, released in 2019 is an album going back to his roots of simple music that is both relaxing and inspirational, classical and contemporary. This album is dedicated to his brother who had a massive heart attack that nearly took his life. The music reflects the difficulties of life we often go through, and rather than focusing on the rain and storms around us, we instead focus on the peace and light of Jesus to carry us through.

From MainlyPiano
"Through the Rain" is pianist/composer Thad Fiscella’s eighth solo piano album, and although all of his albums have been very personal, this one seems to be especially so. Having spent forty days in a hospital with his brother and his brother’s family after a heart attack almost took his brother’s life, this music tells of that journey but is also a strong testament to Thad’s profound religious faith. I started reviewing Thad Fiscella’s recordings back in 2006 when he released his debut, "Grand Design," and I’ve always been moved by the honesty, sincerity and deep emotion expressed in his music. Inspired by his life, family and relationship with the Lord, Thad’s compositions and improvisations are simple, heartfelt expressions of personal convictions, raw emotions and experiences from his life. Classically-trained, Thad has been composing since he was very young and began writing music for piano and orchestra by the time he was twelve. He has been involved in ministry and ministry projects for more than fifteen years by teaching, leading worship and youth ministry. His passion is “to serve the Lord in whatever capacity needed.”

"Through the Rain" opens with “A Thousand Promises,” an anthemic piece with a melody strong enough to support lyrics. The melody begins simply and quietly, building to a celebratory middle section before becoming more subdued and prayerful near the end. The title track is one of Fiscella’s most beautiful pieces ever. It’s very easy to imagine that this piece was born of a very late-night session at the piano, sitting alone and pouring deep emotion into the piano keys while offering up fervent prayers for help and guidance. I’m looking forward to sheet music for this one! Waves can be very gentle and hypnotic, but they can also be huge, angry and damaging. The piece with that title expresses an easy ebb and flow and is soothing enough to be a lullaby. “Be Still” offers comfort and understanding and feels much like a warm, lingering hug. The delicate “Light Shines Through” brings a message of hope that builds to a powerful middle section and then becomes much softer and more thoughtful, trailing off at the end - another exceptionally beautiful piece! It is obvious from the first notes that “You and Me” is a love song, but I assume this one is an affectionate and nostalgic look back on the lives of two brothers. “Beauty Within” overflows with tenderness and grace. “Swept Away” is very open and introspective - perhaps another late-night session at the piano, looking within and expressing difficult emotions. “Endless” brings the album to a peaceful close with comfort and reassurance.

I think "Through the Rain" is Thad Fiscella’s best album to date! Don’t miss it!
