Jeanette Alexander composes music that takes the listener on a spiritual journey. Her piano style is soulful, heartfelt, emotional, tranquil and spirited. "I find that I naturally write music that touches the inner quiet of a person. It touches their heart, their hopes, and that quiet place, that Stillpoint, we all have."
Her CDs, Still Point and Open Sky have been consistent best sellers in retail shops in the U.S. as well as internationally. It is among the best sellers of new music releases at the East West Bookshop in Seattle, WA. She has international distribution through MusicDesign, New Leaf and LadySlipper.
The Still Point CD project involved several talented local NW artists including Jeffrey Sick, producer and violinist (from The Guarneri Underground, Children of the Revolution); Ben Smith, percussion; Garey Shelton, engineer; Traci Hoveskeland on cello (Bottom Line Duo) and Andre Feriante on classical guitar.
Originally from New York City, Seattle has been her home since 1990. Jeanette began to compose music in the 80''s and began to develop what is uniquely her own style of music. "The kind of music I write is a reaction, I think, to the hectic lifestyle that is so much a part of New York City . In New York, there is so much noise." She found solace in writing music that reflected what was going on around her and composed lyrical, well-structured, melodic songs using the piano and keyboards that evoke peacefulness and introspection.
