One of the best part of the holidays is music. Fishers resident Janese Truver, has released a Christmas album, “Celebrate Christmas,” compilation of holiday favorites with a twist. Truver is a professional pianist and keyboard artist. All the songs on the CD were recorded on her keyboard.
“They’re all my own arrangements,” Truver said. “I just sit down and try to get inspired. I just start playing and the creative process starts. Some of the songs are sacred and some of them are secular holiday songs. I just wanted a nice variety of sounds.”
To achieve variety, Truver played different sounds on her keyboard.
“All the instruments you hear I am playing on my keyboard,” Truver said. “I change up the sounds and play guitar, piano, etc., to have variety and make my music special.”
The 15-song compilation is available as a CD or for download.
“That’s the world of music now, downloading, but I know a lot of people do like to listen to CDs in their car,” Truver said. “I wanted to give that option as well.”
“Celebrate Christmas” is available for purchase at Piney Acres Farm Christmas Store.
“They have a really nice set-up in their store,” Truver said. “There are handmade items, food items and holiday decor. The CD will be available the whole holiday season there.”
The CD also is available at Capstone Cafe & Bookstore at Northview Church. Truver has been a parishioner there since the ‘80s.
“My most favorite times have been playing my keyboard in the atrium for Christmas Eve services as people were coming in and going out of service,” Truver said. “It’s a beautiful setting with live music. Releasing my new Christmas CD at Capstone seemed to be the perfect place.”
