Stemming from a culmination of more than twenty years of devotion to

music and piano, William Linton's "Piano Sketches" takes the listener on an unforgettable journey through feelings and emotions they never knew existed. Call him the cerebral maestro…he who leads you through dips and valleys, peaks and plateaus, rivers and streams, forcing you to conjure up thoughts of past and present, disappointments and triumphs, life and death, and inevitably, blissful romance and crippling heartache.

While obsessed with nature and everything that comes with it…beauty…destruction…new and old, Linton is a man whose sole dedication and only indestructible commitment is to music. He grants us a revealing glimpse into his mind as he graces us with a full hour of blissfully beautiful piano compositions that will make your heart bleed and then make your heart sing, all within the same breath. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll ponder, and you'll most definitely think. Melodies like this are what distinguish between true 'art' and simply an 'artist.' Beautifully structured and expertly arranged, this emotionally explicit album is undeniable proof that William Lipton deserves to share the same piano bench with the best of 'em.
