Paul Cardall

Contemporary jazz pianist Paul Cardall was born April 24, 1973; suffering from a congenital heart defect, he was given only days to live but defied medical expectations, enduring a series of surgeries and illnesses throughout his childhood. Finding comfort in music, Cardall began piano lessons at age eight but quit six months later, not playing again for a decade. While in high school, however, tragedy struck when one of his best friends was killed in a car accident; a grieving Cardall spontaneously composed a musical tribute, going on to write a dozen more songs and in 1995, privately pressing an album. Around that same time he took a job playing piano at a local department store during the holiday season, and selling his record to customers; one copy of the disc made its way to author Richard Paul Evans, the writer of the best-seller The Christmas Box, who invited Cardall to write and record a musical adaptation of the book. The resulting album, also titled The Christmas Box, was released in 1997; upon signing to the Narada label, Cardall reissued the album two years later in conjunction with a new effort, The Looking Glass, which, like its predecessor, drew inspiration from Evans' novels. Cardall issued two albums in 2002, Daily Devotions and Miracles: A Journey of Hope and Healing. Stone Angel has distributed many of his releases, including 2004's Christmas Hymns, Vol. 1 and 2007's Songs of Praise. His 2009 effort Sacred Piano began his relationship with Shadow Mountain Records, the label that released his 2011 effort New Life, which debuted at number one on the Billboard New Age Charts. In 2013 he composed the music for the LDS feature film Ephraim's Rescue. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I just recently started really enjoying Classical music, and that's when I found Paul's music. I am completely hooked on every bit of it, I can listen to at any moment and lifes stress just seems to instantly melt. It puts me right to sleep when all I do is toss and turn, it takes away my headaches, and it just makes life so much easier to live each day! You are a wonderfully talented man, and I truly appreciate your talent, and thank you for furthering your music, and sharing it with us to enjo

Oh wow- by the third chord I knew Life and Death was from LOST. I just watch the series last summer and am watching it again this summer with my 21 year old daughter, who is a writer and a poet. I was already so looking forward to talking about the incredible metaphors of the show. But now that I hear your music, read your story....my goodness what an impact. Your involvement in it is clearly divine. Not only makes me love it more but now I can not wait to hear more of your inspired music-

God had other plans for you Paul...thank s for the music. You are a blessing!

I didn't realize what talent had arisen out of great depth of pain for Paul Cardal. Much is the case with great artists, musicians, painters, writers, etc., the darkest places of the soul, to get to the most touching, tender places most don't go to or aren't strong enough to bare. Thank you Paul for sharing with us your true gift.
