In the Spring of 2012 I had the honor of being asked to compose the music for Michelle Obama’s Grammy Award-nominated audiobook, American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools and Communities. In addition to composing a main theme for the book, I created a theme for each of the four seasons. Everything was written for solo piano and was performed and recorded in my home studio over the course of a week.
I am grateful to the producers, Scott Cresswell and Dan Zitt for the opportunity to work on such an exciting and positive project. The First Lady hopes the book will keep “the conversation going about how we can all work together to ensure a healthy future for all our nation’s children.”
