A Roses Tale - Early version Its my youngest daughter's birthday. So many feelings about this day... she is 15. In a few short months she will be able to get her permit to drive!!!!

In celebration here is a link to the early version of "A Roses Tale". Heath Vercher contributed to the song as well. We used Reason. This is a complimentary download for you to have.

You can listen to the finished version on my album "Trillium". ;)

Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
