"The piano is a magical vehicle, transporting us to the depths of our hidden emotions"
Welcome to Seamus Kearney Piano, the home of my original piano compositions.
This is where you can find out more about me and my music ... and also get your hands on my newly-produced album, Journeys Inside My Piano. It would be such a pleasure to share my compositions with you.
I was due to hold a concert to mark the launch of my album on the 19th of December, in the beautiful Salle Molière in Lyon. But unfortunately this has had to be postponed due to new COVID restrictions announced by the French government. Thanks to all of those who reserved or showed interest in coming; I will let you know when we have a new date. I can't wait to perform my compositions for you in person!
Postponed due to COVID
Also, check out this video of selected extracts, accompanied by my own photos of favourite spots in New Zealand.
My album is available now through most online streaming platforms and it can be downloaded here on this site as audio files.
Also, for those who like to have a physical object in their hands, you can purchase a limited-edition CD or double vinyl record (yes they are making a comeback!).
You can order the CD or vinyls right here on this site; they are in stock and ready to be shipped or hand-delivered. (And sheet music for all of the tracks are being made available!)
There are three delivery options: hand-delivered (Lyon or elsewhere by arrangement), France by post & International by post.
The album is available now on dozens of online streaming platforms such as Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Amazon Music, Tidal, Pandora, etc. There are links on the 'Get My Album' page or simply search for my name or Journeys Inside my Piano.
Seventeen original tracks
The album includes the following 17 pieces: A Moment of Clarity; I Refuse; A Waltz in the Parallel Universe; The Siren of Absence; A Man in his Forties; Sunnyview Road; Song for Sunglim; An Irish Boy; The Marionettes; Return to Acadia (The Sunday Crossword); Resisting; Roma Sunrise; Yesteryear Sonata (Dorian's Lullaby); The Path Not Chosen; Insolvent City (Under); The Colour of Time; and Erin's Prelude (first composition).
Journeys Inside My Piano is a compilation of many of the piano pieces I've written over the years.
Some of the tracks date back to when I lived in my home country of New Zealand, but the majority were written after moving to Europe. Some of the pieces, for example, were specifically composed for theatre productions.
The holder of both New Zealand and Irish citizenship, I have been living in France for more than 20 years.
I first travelled to Europe from Auckland in 1994, spending time in London and Bristol before moving to Nice, Saint Paul de Vence and then Paris. I have been living in the southeastern city of Lyon since the end of 2003. When I'm not playing the piano or composing, I work as a journalist, presenter, correspondent, media consultant and media trainer: www.seamuskearneymedia.com
Thanks for your visit and your interest in my music. I hope you enjoy my pieces and please don't hesitate to get in touch with any comments or questions.
