Music, Pianoman, Dressage

Cover of ‘Fire and the flood’

As a jobbing Pianoman, I get booked to perform at weddings. I never take for granted the importance of such occasions. Couples often ask for a special first dance song, their request may well be new to me. In order to deliver my best version, I take time in the run up to their big day, to learn this song and understand it’s meaning. One such occasion is coming up, and I’ve been introduced to a great song by Vance Joy called ‘Fire and the Flood’.

I will always send the couple an advance recording, just so they can perfect the dance moves and be ready for their all important first steps as a married couple in front of their loved ones. So here’s a clip of me recording this song – I first laid down the piano track then had a few runs at getting the words and melody right. It’s such a beautiful song – I hope you enjoy my version.

A lot of wonderful things happened – we put on a show – you showed up – we felt the love! So grateful to have people come out on Sunday night and listen to essentially unfamiliar music – although I saw a fair few of you singing along!

A room full of hopeful and happy hearts.
