This new all-original music CD is the 16th CD release by best-selling piano artist, Mike Strickland. This solo piano recording is like a combination between a stunning piano concert and a gorgeous movie soundtrack.

Born into a musical family in Jackson, Mississsippi, Mike has been creating music since he was a young child. Formal piano lessons were followed by music composition studies at Berklee School of Music in Boston and California State University Northridge. Mike's professional career started while he was at college with the discovery that instead of studying for his business degree, he was composing and playing music 5 to 6 hours a day.

In 1987, his recording studio and company, Mike Strickland Productions, Inc. was formed. That same year, he recorded his first album of original music entitled "Floating". This upbeat, creative recording soon attracted the attention of CBS Sports producer, Frank Chirkinian and was used for the PGA Golf telecasts for several seasons.

Since that time, Mike has produced 14 more CD releases entitled: "Time Remembered"-1990; "Christmas Time"-1991; "Traveling On"-1993; "My Favorite Things"-1994; "My Favorite Things, Vol. 2"-1995; "Starry Night"-1995; "Music Of The Night"-1996; "Moonlight"-1997; "On The Wind"-1998; "The Piano"-1999; "Jazz, Blues and Boogie"-2000; "Duo"-2001; "Touch The Sky"-2003; "All-Time Piano Favorites"-2003.

In the last 20 years, Mike has performed extensively all over the United States as a solo artist and with various groups. To date, he has recorded 15 CDs on his own label, MSP Records. His recordings have been broadcast nationally on several radio and television programs. His music is also broadcast through several foreground music companies via satellite to 40,000 businesses nationwide, and has been distributed commercially to gift and specialty store markets throughout the USA including DisneyWorld gift properties and The Sharper Image stores.
