Many of us are white keys, the musical notes that are most common and what we hear the most on the keyboard. Some of us are black keys, those musical notes that are less common and give contrast to the expected melodies of life.
White keys without black keys are boring; black keys without white keys are too intense and unstructured.
White keys need black keys to complete a harmonious sound, and vice versa.
Jason Farnham is one of my most favorite musicians. Not only do I feel blessed to have experienced his music, I feel blessed to know him personally. Jason is a native of my hometown, Canton, OH, and I am lucky to call him and his wife Lisa my friends.
Jason now lives in Los Angeles, CA, and he is well on his way to establishing himself as acclaimed artist. My hope is that the music industry will not tarnish the beautiful spirit of optimism that lives in the heart of my friend.
I hope that he keeps making music that inspires hope, love and peace, as he does in this video. “Love Around the World” is perfect for the holidays as we contemplate the diverse nature of celebrations this time of year.
“Love Around the World” is recorded on Jason’s most recent CD “Christmas”, which can be purchased here.
