“Wings Over Water” review by Steve Sheppard / One World Music Radio
I must admit to being most excited to hear this latest single by pianist and composer Brian Kelly, I seem to have been following his musical progression since 2008 and his album Afterplay, and now, some thirteen years later, comes a powerful and vibrant new single entitled Wings Over Water.
This cinematic solo piano offering is truly splendid, I live near the ocean and it would perfectly fit the flight of various gulls and terns as they make their way across the coastal regions.
The fast paced noted structures are sublime in there context, and the chords manifest a creative backdrop, while the melody is rich in colour and texture. Full marks to Brian Kelly, as I have a feeling that Wings Over Water is going to be a big chart hit for the artist.
“Wings Over Water” review by Kathy Parsons / MainlyPiano.com
“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!
