This is a collection of my favorite pieces from the 8 instrumental albums I recorded from 1995 thru 2015. It is a tribute to Katherine Styler, the love of my life and the mother of my children. Kate passed away in 2011 after a long courageous battle with cancer. When we first met I was still playing with my rock n roll band Duke Jupiter. Duke had 7 albums on 3 major labels and was often on the road touring to support those albums. I decided to leave that life and moved to Austin in 1986.
I wrote an instrumental piano piece for Kate and sent it to her for Valentine's Day. She was so moved, she suggested I embrace this genre for my next musical chapter. With her encouragement, love and support (and a degree in marketing from Cornell), Styler Music was born and we never looked back.
I've always felt the presence of god in my life, the love my parents showed me, and the love of my family. My children: Miles, Nicholas, Allie, Cristina, my grandson Liam and my colleague and good friend Greg Walker help keep me going forward with my music. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your encouragement and support Bless you all.
