Jeff Kinder -
Jeff Kinder’s classically-trained piano background blends beautifully into his unique, contemplative and heartfelt piano compositions. The Northern Ohio-based musician’s piano sound is emphasized by the simple melodies and epic themes that make up his releases. A film-music-inspired focus is clear, from his writing and performing style to creating a powerful and moving strings-driven soundscape.
Kinder’s compositions fall into the New Age/ Instrumental/Neo-Classical genres. George Winston, Michael W. Smith and Jim Brickman are among his top piano influences. He records in Nashville with Blair Masters, the studio owner and current keyboard player for Garth Brooks. Kinder worked with the late Multi-Grammy award-winner Michael Bishop of Five/Four Productions in Cleveland, Ohio, on his first release, “Moments” (2011).
Kinder's 2020 release “Triumph” was engineered by multi-Grammy award-winning Rob Burrell of RB Productions, Inc., (Spring Hill, TN). Jeff's latest project, "Joy," a Christmas album, was recorded in Nashville with Blair Masters. Kinder and Masters worked together this time as co-producers on the project.
Jeff's Triumph album was nominated for the 2020 Album of the Year by solopiano.com. His music has been streamed more than eight million times on Pandora.
Kinder also penned two songs for band Daughter Darling’s “Sweet Shadows” album. One of these songs, “Broken Bridge,” -was featured in the pilot episode and first DVD release of TV’s “Bones.”
