There is something special about this album; it has the lightness and a sun filled approach that just makes you feel good when you listen to it. That’s Out of the Blue, by Cory Lavine and if that’s what an album does to you, that can’t be too bad, take a listen to track one called Riding the Wind and you will see what I mean, this is simply charming, it’s happy and full of youthful energy, a great beginning piece.

Give Thanks is something I do most days of my life, one always has to be grateful for the time we have, and to be able to share with others doubly so. This is a beautiful musical repose of that gratitude, of that moment, wrapped up in layers of music, performed with true honestly by Lavine. Continue Reading…

I really like the concept behind the title of Cory Lavine’s album Out of the Blue. In his words: “Over the years, I, and maybe you yourself have been inspired by people who’ve come in and out of your life. Many of these who I am referring to, came to us from out of nowhere. They came, “Out of the Blue.” Who sent them? Where did they come from? How did they know when and where to find us, and why? Regardless if we ever find out the answers I believe when we look deep within ourselves, we can often answer the reason why. This album is dedicated to all those who’ve inspired us to be our best, and to be sure we’re living out our lives to the fullest.”

These kinds of experiences and “chance” encounters have served as inspiration for Cory in his music and his life. A number of times since his youth he felt like giving up on his dreams, but someone or something was there to re-ignite his passion and determination. When he was only 9 years old and taking piano lessons, Cory was struggling with learning to read music. But his teacher saw the potential in him and instead of giving up on him or sending him to someone else, she set about to learn the Suzuki Method of playing by ear so that she could teach it to him.

Out of the Blue is the first full-length CD release from pianist/composer Cory Lavine. A native New Yorker who now makes his home in Tennessee, Lavine has been playing the piano since he was nine. He took lessons for about six years and played in a variety of rock bands. He eventually earned a BA degree in music and sociology, doing youth ministry on the side whenever he could. The music on Out of the Blue was composed between 2009 and 2014, and Lavine had not composed music before that. Inspired by meeting and hearing Whisperings Artists David Nevue, David Lanz, Joseph Akins, and Philip Wesley in concert, that experience gave him the push he needed to start creating his own music. Light and upbeat, the nine piano solos are not overly complicated or challenging to the listener, but their messages are clear and heartfelt. While listening to his music, I get the feeling that Lavine is a genuinely nice person who is hoping his music will create a bright spot among all of the chaos of everyday living – and indeed, it does!
