    Signature - Solo
    Fiona Joy


    Fiona Joy's name is known to many thanks to her award-winning recordings, yet Signature - Solo is her first solo piano release.

    "Fiona's music is a cross between George Winston's simple melodies and Ludovico Einaudi's musical sophistication. Her masterful performances are the perfect music to showcase the kind of clarity our audiophile recordings bring to the home listener"
    - Producer, Cookie Marenco, Tiny Island Music (Blue Coast Records).

    Last year Fiona Joy signed to the Blue Coast Music Group, as Marenco has partnered with Sony Music to deliver hi-resolution music to discerning audiophile consumers. Signature - Solo has been recorded now in almost every resolution from double DSD to CD and finally mp3. "Every nuance is captured as Fiona performs on an impeccably-restored 1885 Steinway piano in a live performance setting," says Cookie.

    Writer Lawrence Devoe (Blu-rayDefinition) wrote, "I heard echoes of George Winston in some of the tracks like 'Ceremony', and reminiscences of Michael Nyman's minimalist piano works in ''Fair Not', but Fiona Joy really brings her own voice that will take listeners deep into the heart of her contemporary music. The alternative version of 'Once Upon Impossible', an ethereal voice-piano duet with guitarist Lawrence Blatt, lets us see the other side of the artist."

    Concert reviewer Michael Diamond, who attended Fiona Joy's 2014 Throckmorton Theatre concert in San Francisco commented "What I appreciated most was being able to listen and watch Fiona at the piano. The passion and elegance in her performance was breathtaking, as her flawless technique combined with pure emotional expression."

    "Fiona Joy's piano playing can not only stand on its own, but is a delightful feast for the ears, full of emotion, resplendent with artistry and technique, and draped in a myriad of emotions that comes through on each and every note and chord. It's sure to be one of the best piano recordings of this year.. "
