Whitespace is truly exceptional… a solo piano standout… and if this is Hewitt’s “first effort”, we simply cannot wait to hear the music yet to come. Melodic, beautiful, memorable and emotionally satisfying.
“Whitespace” is the debut solo piano album by Utah composer/pianist Chad Hewitt. Released in the fall of 2017, it has been nominated as “Album of the Year” by Whisperings Solo Piano Radio. Hewitt’s website carries the motto “quiet music for a noisy world” and that’s actually a very apt description of this album. Don’t be fooled, though – this is not ear candy. While there is an air of calm and optimism running through most of the twelve tracks, this music has enough substance for those who listen to music more closely to hear something new each time.
