Original music inspired by you
Have you ever wondered what the soundtrack of your life might sound like? Now is the time to make it a reality.
For over twenty years, I have been capturing the stories of real people through original piano music. I call these Music Portraits.
When I create original music inspired by your story, I honor you for your uniqueness. Every time you hear your music played, you are reminded of these truths and more:
These are powerful, life-changing truths. God uses them to set you free from past hurts, calm you in present troubles, and inspire you to pursue your dreams.
Watch the music video below to hear me tell the story of Sandi who inspired the piano work "Light of Dawn".
I can't wait to hear your story and create a Music Portrait inspired by you, because your life matters!
~ John Albert Thomas

"So beautiful! Your art tells a story in itself of fracture, brokenness, transformation and many hearts and souls in a ripple effect and each a story folded into each heart and unifying through love. That is what I saw and heard from your art! The levels of movement and emotions of the music intwined together were so touching and Jesus was written all over this combination!!
