Two Breaks is an album entirely made up of solo piano works. All of the pieces were written and recorded over Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. I recorded the album myself, mixed it in an all-analogue studio, and had copies made professionally through Nationwide CD. The music on this album ranges from laid-back pieces to jazzy improv works. In each piece I try to capture excitement and emotion with rhythm and interesting lines. Many of the songs were written for others. Track four, 'For Your Heart', was written to heal the heart of a friend who was supposed to go in for surgery to fix a bad valve. Track eight was written for another friend who complained to me that I never wrote anything for her. The last track on the album is a bar-fight style song based on a piece a good friend of mine played during a meal at college.
