Austin Wolfe is a born singer/songwriter. She is the daughter of our dear friends Scott & Anita who live in Park City, Utah. She began writing songs at 5 years old and her natural ear for song crafting is astounding. She is beginning to perform at artist events in her town and will soon be recording her demo. Great things are in store for this natural talent.

I knew when she was 6 months old that she was “tuned in” to music. This is a picture of her studying me when I sang and played some songs for her.
Being very new to the art of audio recording, here are a couple tunes we recorded in my wee studio when she was 11.

SANDRA KRASNER, 88 YEAR OLD PIANIST

Sandra Krasner is an 88 year old woman who has Alzheimer’s Disease. She is a lifelong classical pianist who studied with Anton Rovinsky (a pupil of Artur Schnabel) and gave numerous recitals at Douglas College in New Jersey. As her memory continues to decline her repertoire of what pieces she remembers is shrinking. My husband Manny and I invited her and her daughter Julie to our home so that we could record her. When Sandra and Julie arrived that day, Sandra walked in, immediately sat down at our piano and her fingers began to fly. We rushed around like chickens to turn on the computer, get the session up and press record to capture her in her moment. Sandra is originally from New Jersey and now lives in New York City
