"Somehow music brings me peace in a way that nothing else can. It has made my dreams come to life and magically made the impossible seem a little easier to achieve. I feel there is no stronger combination in this world than that of a powerful imagination and a beautiful song. Each song might be a little different for each person who hears it and so I invite you to find a Far Off Place of your own."- Bret Morrell
After composing for eight years, twenty-three year old pianist Bret Morrell has embarked on a journey to share his music with the world. With great hopes in mind he has recently released his debut album titled Far Off Place, a Contemporary Classical album containing ten of his original compositions. With the support of Bret's listeners, the song "Place of Dreams" has now topped the charts on www.ldsmusicworld.com for several weeks now, being ranked number one for the most popular song.
At the age of thirteen, Bret studied piano for a little less than two years. Although he learned a lot from his piano teacher, he feels his music comes to him as a gift. "I haven't taken any kind of composition classes and am able to compose what I consider to be beautiful music. I feel this music was supposed to happen, that it is meant for other people. It has helped me a lot in my life and I know it has others."
Looking towards the future, plans are being made to begin touring and sharing his music with those it was intended for. With his passion for music pushing him forward, Bret is sure to "bring the house down" with his modern and unique concert ideas. "Besides making other people happy, music is what drives me," Bret explains. His concerts will focus on making the audience experience something they will remember for a long time to come. "I will always write music for as long as I am able. This is what I want to do." He concludes, "It's never going to be something that I get bored with because every song has a different meaning. Every song comes from a different emotion or feeling that I am experiencing. I guess I just love music!"
