Folk pianist Joel Rosenberger plays the old stuff in a new way... intimate solo piano arrangements suitable for worship, contemplation, or sheer enjoyment.
As a child, Joel taught himself to play the family upright, eventually creating his own arrangements of hymns and popular songs, by ear. In 2005, with no real formal training (he took piano lessons for two semesters in college), and armed with a small, 72-key electronic keyboard, he began releasing his music in 2005 as a series of podcasts. Hymns, of course. He had been improvising and arranging these old melodies for years. Then the e-mail started arriving... from around the world... kind words, requests for sheet music and CDs, permission to use his work.
Several years and several projects later, Joel continues to compose, arrange, produce, and transcribe his own unique style of piano music. His curious nature drives him to refine and improve. And he still loves to get mail.
