Overcoming insurmountable conflicts in life, in both the professional and personal senses, can often lead to a powerful driving force in the creative world. That’s certainly the case for pianist-songwriter Daniel Coloprisco, who’s launching his long-awaited solo musical career after contending with such obstacles and life divergences as divorce, debilitating anxiety and taking on a full-time job in Information Technology.

But the New Jersey-based musician is now devoting more time to his love of creating songs, as he released his new two-track alt-pop EP, ‘Winter’s Song,’ last month. Coloprisco crafted eclectic and atmospheric piano work, which allows him to bring his listeners through a soulful, powerful and emotional journey that will surely encourage them to ponder what truly makes them happy in life.

Coloprisco’s latest EP begins with the title track, which features vocals by singer Jes Hudak, who first rose to fame as a runner-up on Bravo TV’s 2011 reality competition series, ‘Platinum Hit.’ The vocalist powerfully reflects on Coloprisco’s journey throughout ‘Winter’s Song,’ which he has described as being autobiographical, as well as sad but hopeful. The somber lyrics and Hudak’s powerful, heartfelt and passionate vocals perfectly compliment the elegant and harmonic piano arrangement.

The tune describes the instrumentalist’s relationship with his first fiancée, and the melancholic lyrics emotionally refer to reminiscences of their connection and hopes. But when the bond grew excessively possessive, the duo decided to end the relationship, which he refers to in the lyrics: the tighter you’re held, the more you slip away. Driven by a riveting, sentimental and nostalgic classical piano melody, the lyrics noted that the duo will always remembers and contemplates when they meant everything to each other.

The closing entry on Coloprisco’s new EP is the captivating, instrumental-driven ‘A Touch of a Feeling,’ which continues the passionate and nostalgic piano melody from the title track. As the harmonics progress, the piano encapsulates an affectionate appeal and aesthetic. While the composition is more traditional in nature, the musician undoubtedly proves what exciting and versatile elements he can bring to his work. The song invites its listeners to fully immerse themselves in, and experience, the introspective, instrumental part of his multi-faceted artistry.

Conquering overwhelming conflicts in life, in both the professional and personal senses, can often lead to a powerful driving force in the creative world. That’s certainly the case for Coloprisco, who has finally launched his long-awaited solo musical career after confronting such issues and life divergences as divorce, debilitating anxiety and taking on a full-time job in Information Technology.

But the pianist-songwriter is now devoting more time to his love of creating songs, with the recent unveiling of ‘Winter’s Song.’ Coloprisco crafted eclectic and atmospheric piano work on his new alt-pop EP, which allows him to bring his listeners through a soulful, powerful and emotional journey that will surely encourage them to ponder what truly drives them.
