Chris Heron is a modern classical / instrumental composer from Menifee, California who specializes in piano and orchestral music. What makes his music different is that it focuses heavily on the emotional aspect of a song. A song should provoke feelings, whether that be sadness, happiness, fear or joy.
Beginning at a very young age, his compositions continued to grow and mature as he did. He didn’t enjoy it that much while he was learning to play piano in his early years. “The strict nature of following rules and playing music I didn’t enjoy hindered my love for music.” says Chris. However, years after these lessons were over, his love for music returned through expressing his emotions and feelings through the ivory keys of a piano.
“Sanctuary” is a beautiful instrumental album that focuses on emotion. It is easy listening, and tries to tell a story with each of its individual tracks. Very true to its name, “Sanctuary” provides moments of relaxation, reflection, and a get away from the hustle and bustle of ever day life.
When Chris composed the tracks for this album, the focus for many of the tracks was to begin with a melody. Something relaxing, and pleasing to the ears, and from there to build off of the melody to complete the track. As each instrument and note join the chorus of instruments, the songs should paint a picture within your mind allowing you to imagine yourself in a whole new setting.
