14 MP3 Songs
EASY LISTENING: Instrumental Pop, NEW AGE: Ambient
On Easter Sunday, 2007, Debbie Fortnum released her fourth CD -- the second solo piano CD (in a planned series of three!) entitled The Beautiful Piano. The Beautiful Piano bears 14 tracks of blended neo - classical and inspirational pop, including TWO Bonus Vocal Tracks which will be released to Radio Stations everywhere in the late Spring.
The Beautiful Piano bears much of Fortnum’s own heart as three original instrumental compositions were written for each of her children, and one of the Bonus Vocal Tracks she wrote for - and sang to - her husband Scott on their wedding day, almost 17 years ago. Fortnum’s earthy-elegant stylings make the new CD very soothing, romantic, inspiring and even wedding-friendly.
“I have always loved instrumental music. My prayer for this new instrumental PIANO SERIES is that it will bring a sense of soothing sanctuary to busy minds and hearts — that it will help us slow down and re-focus on what -- and who -- is really most important in life. There’s something about the sound of a piano that can actually help us do that,” says Fortnum, "the striking of the keys, both softly and strongly helps us process emotions and the absence of words helps us think our own thoughts, rather than force our minds onto the same wavelength as the vocalist. There is simply a time and a place for both. This is my contribution to a society that is busy."
The two bonus vocal tracks add her signature songwriting depth, and gives folks a taste of the other side of Fortnum, who is a Canadian Award-nominated songwriter who tackles ancient, spiritual themes in a personal yet poetic style.
The PIANO SERIES is being marketed to venues such as gift shops, book stores, flower shops, wedding boutiques and spas.
With only a few months between Fortnum’s wildly successful, THE CHRISTMAS PIANO, her new CD THE BEAUTIFUL PIANO is poised to quickly follow in its footsteps with the pre-orders already in the hundreds.
Fortnum’s PIANO SERIES is produced and arranged by herself, and Canadian Gospel Music Association’s Award-nominated Artist / Producer, Chris Janz, who adds several artistic contributions to Debbie’s original piano arrangements including strings, ethnic drums and electric guitars. “This really is a collaborative effort between Chris and I” says Fortnum, who hand-picked Janz to co-produce her instrumental series.
Far Away Music Canada will release two of the Bonus Vocal Tracks to radio stations everywhere. Fortnum’s and Janz’s duet based on 1st Corinthians 13 is set to become a wedding favorite, called "Love Never Fails", as well as the second Bonus Vocal Track that she wrote -- and sang to -- her husband Scott on their wedding day 17 years ago, called "I Am Yours".
Fortnum’s humanitarian heart has taken her from Chilliwack, BC Canada to central Africa where she adopted a village of AIDS orphans and facilitated their sponsorship here in Canada. The village has now become a model community within Canadian Food for the Hungry International, based out of Abbotsford, BC. She has also been involved in several Cancer Fundraising Efforts throughout Canada and the USA.
Debbie has shared both stage and studio with world-renowned Abbotsford Artist & Songwriter, Brian Doerksen. His world-wide release of ’Holy God’ contains a stirring duet that they recorded and performed together at his CD Release Concerts March 2nd & 3rd in Abbotsford, BC. She travels throughout Canada and the USA, giving concerts, sharing her story of faith and hope from behind the piano. She also speaks extensively for Women’s Retreats, Conferences and church worship services.
In September 2006, Fortnum and her inspirational vocal CD To Love and to Be Loved were nominated for five Canadian Maja Awards in Toronto including Female Artist of the Year, where she came home with the Canadian Maja Award for Best Inspirational Praise and Worship CD of 2006. Its title track hit #1 on the European Radio Charts in 2006.
