Bill Laurance announces Solo Piano Album Affinity
September 23, 2022
Classically-trained composer, sought after collaborator and Grammy award-winning pianist Bill Laurance is set to release his 8th solo record, Affinity, on October 28th 2022 via Flint Music. The album is his first to consist purely of original solo piano material, and select covers.
“Affinity reveals Laurance’s poetic melodicism at its finest”
Mike Flynn, Editor, Jazzwise
Stylistically diverging from his previous solo material, Affinity centres around the constant in Bill’s diverse musical career; the piano. With previous records touching on electronic music, a solo piano record was something Bill had considered for a long time, “I've wanted to do a solo piano album for as long as I can remember. To perform solo, represents musical freedom in its purest form and there is no other setting where I feel more at home. My last studio album Cables was originally intended to be a solo piano album, but quickly morphed into something quite different involving an endless array of synthesisers and guitar pedals. This time I was determined to celebrate the instrument in all its glory, by itself.”
