Lindy Kerby — Composer

Posted on Mar 13, 2013 in Authors, Women Authors

There is something about a song that speaks to my soul. It happens when I hear a beautiful emotional melody, or a lyric that captures exactly the way I am feeling at the present time. As a composer, I’ve had the opportunity to feel this connection almost every time I sit down to the piano. I play my own songs, as an outward expression of what I’m feeling at the time.

I’ve shared sheet music for several of my piano and less personal songs, on my Kerby Music website. It makes...
