Jeanette Alexander is an Award-winning composer/pianist and recording artist in the Seattle area. She has three CDs to her name and her lovely compositions have been featured in commercials, films, radio, as well as the airlines. She began her own record label, Creative Muse Productions, in 1998 with the release of her first CD, Still Point, and has found national and international distribution, as well as licensing in Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries with her subsequent releases.
Jeanette composes music that takes the listener on a spiritual journey. Her piano style is soulful, heartfelt, emotional, tranquil and spirited. "I find that I naturally write music that touches the inner quiet of a person. It touches their heart, their hopes, and that quiet place, that Stillpoint, we all have."
Her CD Open Sky was chosen as FIRST PLACE #1 Award Winner for Best Instrumental Album at the Just Plain Folks Awards 2002 in Los Angeles. The song Setting Sail was chosen FIRST PLACE #1 Award Winner for Best Instrumental Song from the same album.
All her CDs involved several talented local NW musicians including Geoffrey Castle, producer and violinist, Grammy Award Winners Eric Tingstad & Nancy Rumbel, Ben Smith on percussion, Garey Shelton, on bass, Traci Hoveskeland on cello and Andre Feriante on classical guitar.
Originally from New York City, Seattle has been her home since 1990. Jeanette began to compose music in the 80 s and began to develop what is uniquely her own style of music. "The kind of music I write is a reaction, I think, to the hectic lifestyle that is so much a part of New York City . In New York, there is so much noise." Her influences are those of David Lanz, Yanni, George Winson, Suzanne Cianni, Will Ackerman, Jim Brickman, and Narada Artists Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel.
Jeanette performs in and around the Seattle area to promote her music and CD while also promoting her music for use in film and commercials. She is available for corporate events, festivals, wedding ceremonies, and other special events. She performs at events either solo, or as a duo with a violinist and also as a trio with other musicians, on cello and percussion. She can bring along her own keyboard and portable sound system, if necessary.
