"as original as they come, listening to everyone but beholden to no single influence; Eales demands your attention with the force of his musical personality and keeps it with his musicianship" - Budd Kopman (Cadence USA)
A NOTE FROM GEOFF
Hi everyone and thanks for dropping by!
You don't need me to tell you that the last 18 months have been very difficult and stressful for us all, but hopefully there will be much better days ahead very soon.
In March this year I reached a big milestone. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to celebrate my 70th birthday in style due to Covid restrictions. However, all is not lost! On September 22nd I am throwing a belated birthday party at the beautiful and intimate 1901 Arts Club in Waterloo. It is a smallish venue and so regrettably I am unable to invite all the people I would have liked to. So please do not be offended if you don't quite make the list.
I am also launching my new solo piano album "Memoir" at this event. It is dedicated to the memory of those special people and places that have played such an important part in the story of my life.
It is hard to believe that the premiere of my musical "Spirit of the Mine" happened nearly two years ago. Since that time I have written many new songs for the show, some of which will be aired for the first time as part of the concert
To hear a sample of songs from the musical please visit Projects and click on the links for "Spirit of the Mine".
Finally, I was thrilled to be asked to play with the Leighton Jones Band down in Cardiff Bay this August Bank Holiday. The two gigs I did were amongst the most enjoyable and uplifting of my entire life. It was truly worth waiting 18 months for.
More news of another upcoming album will be coming soon. Watch this space!
