It's that "Grammy" time of year, and my latest album, "Winding Down" is on the ballot for "Best New Age Album." Also, the song "Clockwork" from that same album is on the ballot for "Composing/Arranging". So... let's see what happens!

To all my friends in the Eugene/Springfield area. This Friday night, one of my good friends, pianist Louis Landon, is playing with a jazz trio in downtown Eugene at The Jazz Station. I went to this show last year and it was one of the most delightful musical experiences of my life! Seriously! It was such a GREAT show, and when you watch these three guys improvise together, it's just astounding! I had such a blast last year, and I was so amazed by the show, that I was determined to spread the word to everyone I knew about the show this year. So join me this Friday night (10/23) at the Jazz Station, 124 W Broadway 7:30 PM, to watch and hear Louis Landon rip it up at the piano! Tickets are $12 at the door. Did I hear someone say DATE NIGHT? YES! I can't wait!

For the last year couple of years I have really struggled with the desire to perform live. I just haven't wanted to do it anymore and my live performances have dropped to a trickle. It got to a point where I dreaded performing... at all. In fact, that was the inspiration, in part, for my latest album, "Winding Down."

It's been a mystery to me... I'd ask myself.. "What's happened to me? Why do I feel this way?" Well, I think the Lord may have revealed it to me.

It comes down to this... without realizing it, I started "performing to please people" rather than performing to please God. The focus of my concerts have been "making the fans happy." And thus, I feel like whenever I perform I have to climb a mountain of expectations. I'm too tired to climb that mountain anymore.

This all occurred to me last night and I realized... if I can change my heart back to what it used to be... playing for the Lord and for Him alone... with my desire being to please Him, knowing that He accepts my worship and prayers from the piano even though I am broken and imperfect... then maybe, just maybe, I will find my joy in performing again.

So... I have a couple of shows coming up in Montana next weekend. I am reworking my shows to include more worship, and less "songs designed to impress." I'm going to go with my intent to be to play "as unto the Lord" not to play to impress people.

As the popular worship song by Matt Redman goes... "I'm going back to heart of worship, because it's all about YOU, it's all about you, Jesus."

Introduction
David Nevue (pronounced NEV-Yoo) is a self-taught pianist who resides in Eugene, Oregon. He has been involved in the arts as a writer, actor, musician and performer since his youth. In 1992, David released his first album of piano works called "The Tower," written as a soundtrack for one of his short stories. In the years since, he has released a dozen other albums including his most recent, "Open Sky," released in 2013. David's 2005 CD release, "Overcome", won the title "Best Instrumental Piano Album of 2005" at the Lifestyle Music Awards.

David's neoclassical piano stylings reflect his wide musical influences, which include Clannad, Chopin, Pink Floyd, Rachmaninoff, Renaissance, George Winston and Rush. David's music also reflects his love of literature, quoting numerous influences from C.S. Lewis to The Bible. David's artistry is demonstrated not only in his music, but in his thematic approach to each album. Rather than creating collections of unrelated compositions, David treats each individual work as but one chapter in a much bigger story that stirs the imagination and carries the listener to a gratifying conclusion.

Today, David promotes his music almost exclusively via the Internet. He is the author of "How to Promote Your Music Successfully on the Internet," the founder of The Music Biz Academy, an online resource for musicians, and the program director for Whisperings: Solo Piano Radio (www.solopianoradio.com), a hugely popular Internet radio broadcast. David also tours three or four times a year, and has performed concerts with David Lanz, Wayne Gratz, Peter Kater, Suzanne Ciani and dozens of other pianists.

David’s music can be heard on over 220 radio programs world-wide. To learn more about David, visit his web site at www.davidnevue.com .
