Teasers and music videos from the Consecrated album will be shared below, as they are released.
By Our Love
“By Our Love” was released as a single on the week of the 59th US presidential inauguration. Although the full animated video appears here, be sure to visit the web page devoted to this project: http://www.by-our-love.com
The “By Our Love” animated short video was produced by Greenhouse Studios. It was a collaborative effort, created by a diverse team of Fine Arts faculty, students and staff from the University of Connecticut.
Take My Life, and Let It Be Consecrated
This video includes rehearsal footage shot by Evan Olson. It was edited by Samuel Estrin, the son of my college roommate, Jules Estrin. Sam creatively assembled the video by combining the rehearsal footage with his own videography. The song and music video feature Karly Epp on vocal, Kris Allen on tenor saxophone, David Smith on trumpet, Karl Kohut on string bass, Rogerio Boccato on drums, and me on piano. This is the second single from my project “Consecrated.” Consecrate means to set apart or dedicate to a higher purpose. I want my life and music to reflect the values and teachings of my Christian faith. As a pianist, the song’s lyric, “take my hands and let them move at the impulse of thy love” especially resonates with me.
