Professional Review

Kathy Parsons professional review excerpts (July 26 2016)

The Diary is the fifth solo album by pianist/composer Mark Freshwater. The fourteen tracks include eleven new original pieces and three arrangements. The instrumentation is mostly piano with keyboard and electronic instrumental enhancements. Three of my favorites on this project are “Pilgrim’s Winter,” “Babes in the New World” and “Mary Did You Know?”

The Diary is quite possibly Mark Freshwater’s best album to date. It is available from Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby.

I am very proud and privileged to be included on this annually issued New Age compilation (its 10th Anniversary Edition) by the New Age Music Circle. They selected one of my original tracks (Summer Interlude) to be included on the project with the likes of Peter Kater, Will Ackerman, Neil Tatar and a host of additional talented musicians and songwriters. If you use spotify you can sample and stream it now.....if you want the CDs, I have a small supply available. This music is very relaxing and offers a wide variety of instrumental melodies, spa relaxation songs, a real unique mix.
