Jon Dahlander canât walk by a piano. He has to play it. Itâs why heâs been kicked out of countless hotel lobbies, bars and restaurants throughout his life.
âTo me, every piano has a story--where it was made, who made it, the kind of shape itâs in, who played it before and what it sounds like now, particularly with one of my songs,â says Jon. âSo, if I see a lonely piano, I have to play it. Itâs like finding a new friend with a common interest.â
Itâs why Jonâs series of piano solos isnât morose or mundane. These are pieces of music that bask in the joy of being played.
In 1995, Jon signed on with Dallas-based Carpe Diem Records and his debut was the labelâs fastest-ever selling debut.
1997 brought the release of Piano Landscapes v.2, a CD inspired by a trip Jon took to Europe after studying the piano works of Maurice Ravel and Erik Satie.
V.3 was released one week before Jon and his wife Heidi gave birth to a special needs child named Jared, effectively sidelining his recording career for a few years.
Since then, while he has not recorded any new music, Jon has played in some of the top venues in the Dallas area, including the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Sammons Center, where he headlined a concert for a Dallas arts organization called Inspirata.
In 2006, Jon is lending new piano material to a project called Luminas, which is designed to assist cancer patients through the use of guided imagery.
âI know all about the healing power of music,â says Jon. âOne of the times when our son was in the ICU of the hospital, a family whose child was dying asked to borrow one of my CDs. To walk by later and hear that my music was helping ease their pain during the most difficult of hours makes every ounce of energy Iâve ever spent with the piano worth it. If my music can help others, then thatâs the icing on the cake.â
