It's common for classically trained musicians and composers to have roots in the church. Throughout time, these musicians have contributed their formal music training to gospel’s development, specifically on the grand piano. Many composers, like Richard Smallwood, wrote music that introduced elaborate and elegant playing in the gospel genre. They mixed the raw and spontaneous nature of the music with a more technical and planned approach, pushing the genre forward while also pushing the use of the grand piano to the forefront of the genre in a new way.
Gospel Grand Keys Volume 1 was created by Richard “Tubbs” Smith, one of the top pianists and keyboardists in gospel music today. Contained in this release are 50 loops of chord progressions and riffs along with 100 one-shots in various key and time signatures for easy drag and drop in a sampler or DAW. This release delivers world-class musicianship at your fingertips to inspire your next track or project.
