Tomorrow's Daydream Brian Kelly CD ecowallet artworkMy fourth album, Tomorrow’s Daydream, will be released on March 16, 2018, which is my birthday!

This is an image of the art proof provided by the manufacturer (DiscMakers). The packaging is a 4-panel Eco-wallet with spine. I created the package design, incorporating a spectacular image by Adrian Borda and a photo of me taken last Fall by my lovely spouse on our trip to Vienna. I am in front of the piano in the apartment where Franz Schubert died. He actually played that piano!
