Listen to instrumental piano music from Jennifer DeFrayne with her debut album By a Wire, which was produced by renowned Australian pianist Fiona Joy and Grammy-winning Windham Hill founder Will Ackerman at his Imaginary Road Studios in Vermont. Her piano is complemented by Charlie Bisharat (violin), Jeff Oster (flugelhorn), Jill Haley (English horn), and Eugene Friesen (cello).
This album is especially amazing considering that she had a debilitating stroke only four years earlier. She won the ZMR 2014 Best New Artist award. There is also a lovely review by Kathy Parsons at MainlyPiano.com, as well as one by Michael Diamond on Music and Media Focus. She is working on a new album to be released early next year.
