Greetings Everyone!

Sadly, he crumbled and fell in May 2003 after being there for about 25,000 years according to geologists and historians.

The Musical Minister

The Storyteller Almanac

Our podcaster, Mike Thomas has had a busy week. He just released a new music album. Here is his post about it.

AVAILABLE TUESDAY, APRIL 20th, 2021

This is my most recent project. Released April 15th, 2021, it’s all music / no words. Mainly solo piano with strings. The title reflects a newer musical path I’ve been on for a little while now. Translated, the music I now write or perform is quite different than what I started doing publicly way back in the day. If you enjoy listening to the likes of George Winston, Floyd Cramer, Yanni, Jim Brickman, David Lantz or similar, then. I’m pretty sure you’ll like this album.

Track listing is below. You can listen HERE to sample snippets of all 10 songs. You’ll also find links to where the music resides in digital format to download. To listen to a select few music samples plus the back story on this new project in the promotional video that follows:
