Original Composition

With my added theoretical knowledge, (BA in music 05/13), writing and arranging material for myself and larger ensembles has become a passion.

I have written songs of all kinds and performed them on the various instruments.

Obviously, writing original material and compositions is an entirely different process than mastering a cover tune or studying Mozart — it’s something that I quite enjoy.



Recently, I was commissioned to compose and record an solo piano piece to serve as the musical backdrop for a wedding ceremony.

 Hey man thanks for making an amazing, completely custom mp3 for my beautiful bride (now wifey) to walk down the aisle to. It was clear, classy, and perfectly fitting for the occasion. You NAILED it! – Justin Birzon (the groom)

The following piece is a composition that specifically aimed to capture a New Age nature sound. The client wanted something with ringing arpeggios and nature sound effects for ambient accompaniment played on a loop in an atrium. Blanket of Life showcases instrumental skill as well as production value

I have collaborated with a number of producers to craft samples of my playing into ambient jazz compositions suitable for hip-hop tracks and other such uses.


The Orange Glow Sessions

In early 2012, I flew down to Ft. Myers, Florida to write and arrange some songs for a demo. I arranged the music to both tracks and played all guitars and keyboards. I did not write the lyrics. These songs were recorded at Orange Glow Studios

I Can’t Stop Loving You

Last Days


The following radio advertisement was written to reflect that Chicago sass. I wrote the script, played the music and arranged the spot.
