About the Album

"Brightest Light" is a track from pianist and composer Falkner Evans' album Invisible Words on Consolidated Artists Productions (August 13, 2021). The recording is Evans' solo piano debut and a musical portrait of his wife Linda, who tragically took her own life in May of 2020 in the midst of the pandemic. Invisible Words is both Evans’ celebration of Linda’s life and an integral part of the healing process he’s been undergoing since her passing. Composing the album’s music became the means by which Evans returned to the piano after three and a half months spent unable to even approach the keyboard. The result, he explains, is not meant as a tribute to but a “snapshot” of his beloved wife through his own lens. The resplendent "Brightest Light," a reference to Evans' enduring picture of his wife, is one of eight gorgeous tracks imbued with profound emotion and musicality, performed by a jazz pianist with an uncommon touch and style.
