About Portraits in Piano

Like brush strokes on a musical canvas and displayed for the enjoyment of others, Portraits in Piano is the "art gallery" for the original piano creations by Jack Franklin Wise.

Composer and Piano Artist Jack Franklin Wise served as church pianist in the early 90’s. During that time he composed music and lyrics for a children’s Christmas musical, “The Luckiest Donkey”, which was performed 2 consecutive years at the Sangre De Cristo Arts Center in Pueblo, Colorado. He also accompanied choir cantatas and participated with worship teams at retreats for singles and youth groups.

Jack entered onto the music scene in 2006 to focus on the craft of commercial songwriting. He traveled many times to Nashville to make acquaintances with other people in the music industry and became a member of Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) after two of his songs were signed by publishers.

He recorded his first CD in 2008, a collection of 12 original piano compositions tiltled “Portraits in Piano”. The CD received an excellent review in the Pueblo Chieftain's arts & music column, a local newspaper.

In 2009, Jack produced his 2nd CD, “Hymns Project”, a collection of timeless Hymns and sacred songs. He included one of his own songs on the album, an Easter song titled "Gift From Heaven".

"Portraits of December" was released in 2016. Included among the familiar carols and classic Christmas songs on the album are two of Jack's original holiday songs: a rhapsody titled "Advent of The Christ" and " The Little Child in Me" featuring vocal artist Rachel Williams.

Jack's latest project is "Adagio Piano", released in July of 2018. This album is a collection of soothing piano compositions for easy listening and relaxation.

Piano creations from Jack Franklin Wise can be heard on Pandora, Spotify, Radio Airplay, iHeart Radio, and at many more internet radio websites.
