"A Closer Look Reveals," the new album from composer & pianist Michael R. Oldham, is a deeply personal album that begs the listener to do exactly that: take a closer look. Whether it is taken literally in regards to seven portraits by the provocative Austrian painter, Egon Schiele in "The Egon Schiele Pieces," or more personally in pieces like, "All of My Unrequited Loves," "You Called Me On My Birthday," "Forgive Me," "The Witching Hour," or "Letters of Recommendation for New Romance."
This is an album about love, romance, heartbreak, unrequited loves, sensuality, personal demons, personal growth, moving on, starting over...and the confusion, frustration, and beauty that accompanies all of that.
All music composed and performed by Michael R. Oldham. (ASCAP)
