Wings Over Water (single)
2021 / Skylight Music
Review by Kathy Parsons
"Wings Over Water" is an incredible solo piano single from Brian Kelly's upcoming fifth album. Composed, produced and performed by Brian Kelly, the single was recorded and mixed by Gary Mankin. Even before its release, "Wings Over Water" has collected an impressive number of awards, including "Best Classical Song" and "Best Classical Songwriter" at the 2021 Indie Music Channel Awards (Brian's sixth award from them) as well as a Silver Medal at the 2021 Global Music Awards (Brian's sixth Silver Medal from them since 2016).
I've been a big fan of Brian Kelly's music since before his 2004 debut album, Pools of Light, and "Wings Over Water" is definitely one of his most beautiful pieces. Rapidly flowing and in constant motion, it also clearly demonstrates what an amazing pianist he is. Spirited and free, this sampling makes me even more anxious to hear Brian's next album. A second single will be available the end of December 2021. Sheet music is also in the works!
"Wings Over Water" is available from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify and other streaming sites. Very highly recommended!
