Being a purely instrumental album, it makes a musical statement, not a religious one, and I hope that people can feel the emotion of the great melodies, even without the words.
Just because people play songs with great technique doesn't mean the records are better.
What is music anyway? It's a form of communication, and that's why I play the kind of music that I think - that I hope - can communicate with people.
I approach everything in my life the same way; if it feels right, I know it.
I've never personally criticized anyone else's music, but I know that the public's real problem is not the music I make but the perception that I play simple music for money only and for the notoriety and to increase my popularity.
That's my ideal day, time with my boys.
When I play live, I feel how the audience is going and follow and lead at the same time.
I'm responsive to my public, but I also follow my heart.
Finally, I was no longer a student and was making music for myself.
The Moment is an album that contains the best music I have ever produced.
The whole rise of new adult contemporary music and smooth jazz was a nice surprise.
