Weaving the improvisational style of jazz with classical piano, composer/pianist Becky Archibald creates music that is inviting, intense and intimate. She seeks depth and integrity in her writing, setting aside notions of what music ought to be and listening for resonances within. Michael Schelle, Pulitzer-nominated composer, raves: "an original, distinctive voice of inner strength, optimism and depth."
Archibald's sound, described by Les Reynolds of https://www.tradebit.com as "mischievous, playful, flowing, hypnotic, precise and sweet," has been compared to Gershwin, Chopin, Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett. Her piano CDs, "The Long Ride Home" and "Searching" are receiving airplay on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered." "Her music unfolds like I expect a good story to unfold," says Bob Boilen, director. Chuck Workman, WTPI radio host says, "Her first CD, 'Searching,' showed her potential for original, sensitive communication. Now with her second release, she confirms her talent and potential." Both CDs are making their way around the country through airplay on classical, jazz and new age radio programs.
The idea of writing music music came later in life for Becky. With a Masters Degree in Piano Preformance from California State University at Long Beach, she began teaching at the University of Indianapolis in 1991. After 6 years of talking about music, she felt compelled to create it herself. Her first composition, "Searching," written in 1997 as a gift for her mom, became the title track of her debut CD, which was nominated for Best Instrumental Album in the Just Plain Folks 2000 Album Awards. "I am not sure if the local music community realizes what a jewel in Becky they have in their midst,"says Brian Austin Whitney, founder. Just Plain Folks is a worldwide organization of independent musicians--the largest of its kind. On March 1, 2003, they named "The Long Ride Home" Best Solo Instrumental Album in their 2002 Music Awards.
