Carl Testa is a graduate of Indian University School of Music. He has been playing piano and singing throughout the U. S. and Europe since 1991. This music is heavily influenced by the Beatles, Elton John and the harmony style of Crosby Stills and Nash. All of the songs tell a story and reflect on a specific time or event in my life. I would like to think that my music sends a positive message. The writing style is pretty simple verse chorus method. There are many different vocal styles. Track two features Ryan Waters of Sade and Kamal Malak of Arrested Development. There is a wide range of textures and styles. This CD is for those of you who like a song that takes you on a journey.
