New album available today!

Once Upon a Whimsically Macabre Time

Each piece on this sophomore album by Whimsically Macabre invites you into a fantastical and offbeat world where strange dissonances and oddly familiar melodies combine. The album begins with a piece inspired by the poem by William Blake, played both inside the piano and on the keys. The next piece subtly subverts the meaning of the poem by Lord Byron, "She Walks in Beauty." "Awkward Waltz" is a tender, contemplative anthem for introverts. The album concludes with a piece that is rebelliously understated and questioning of a world that is dominated by forceful statements. "Under Where?" is Whimsically Macabre's response to the song "Over There."
