New and Unreleased songs
Thad Fiscella's music is inspired by his life, family, and relationship with the Lord. His songs are simple, heart felt expressions of personal convictions, raw emotions, and experiences throughout his life. Music styled around contemporary sounds, juxtaposed with classical and hints of jazz. Fiscella's music is created for peaceful relaxing, but also to draw the listener in by painting pictures and expressing words through beautiful, inspiring, and uplifting music. Thad's passion and mission is to serve the Lord, and to be His vessel, to see the gospel shared, and to see people's lives changed through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.
Musically, Fiscella is often compared to musical greats George Winston, Jim Brickman, Yiruma, and David Nevue. His songs often combine a unique rhythmic sense (particularly his use of rubato) with melodic simplicity and counterpoint. The fusion often produces a particularly delicate sound in the balance between melody and harmony, and also creates rhythmically, a soft and interesting harmonic feel, especially in his use of 12/8 time signature.
Grand Design is Thad's first solo project, released in 2006. Musically it is a blend of simplicity and technique; melodic, and at times impressionistic. VAST is Thad’s second solo piano album, released in June of 2008. Thad's most popular album to date. It is also full of emotionaly charged songs, filled with simple and thoughtful melodies, but even more relaxing and calming. Love Without Words is Thad’s third album, released in 2010, is a project to honor his family and 10 years of marriage to his wife. Many of these songs are inspired by his family and friends, and the emotion of the music follows suit. Impromptus Vol. 1 is Thad's fourth CD, and is entirely different than anything Fiscella has done before. Impromptus is a CD of his works of improvisation and simply sitting down and recording what is currently on his heart and mind. These recordings are more classical in nature, and because they are impromptus, some imperfections are present. Fiscella's fifth CD The Road Home contains some of his most popular work to date including songs Beauty of Grace, First Dance, and At the Cross. The Road Home is one of those CD's that brings the description to Fiscella's music that it can be listened to and enjoyed at any time and any place, music that simply fits your life. Fiscella's sixth release Peace, Comfort, and Joy: A Sacred Christmas, is Fiscella's first attempt at a Christmas release. Fiscella intended this CD to be a reflection of his style, but to also keep the overall presence and musical intentions of the original Christmas hymns recorded on the album. Fiscella's Christmas CD is very relaxing and as one listener stated "it just feels like Christmas". Fiscella' s other intention with the Christmas album is to provide the listener with a CD they could sing or hum along with to their favorite Traditional Christmas songs. Fiscella's newest CD Free to Fly released in 2014 is a very special album, dedicated to his father, who passed away during the making of it. Fiscella draws from that emotional experience while resing in his Heavenly father for peace and comfort. Free to Fly is at first very energetic and inspiring, but as the CD progresses it becomes more emotional and peaceful.
Thad’s music has been reviewed by Mainly Piano Publications and described as “music that blends a wealth of experience with deep emotion, creating a distinctive sound that is accessible to all yet complex enough for a more discerning ear, “very calming and uplifting”, “deeply emotional musical soliloquy where only heartfelt truths are spoken – stunning”! Vast was rated one of the best CDs for relaxation of 2009. In 2006 Thad joined Whisperings Solo Piano Radio which has been rated the #1 radio station on the internet for solo piano, and also includes legendary piano artists, David Lanz, Robin Spielberg, Suzanne Ciani, David Nevue, Wayne Gratz, and Michael Dulin. He has also recently joined Sky.fm radio, and Pandora radio. In 2009 Thad won Best Music for Animation at the Swan Lake Moving Images and Music Awards for his song Gentle Whisper, off the album Vast.
Originally from Ottumwa Iowa, Thad currently lives in Missouri, and is married with three beautiful children. He has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a Degree in Music. He has been writing and composing music from an early age, which is his focus and passion. Thad grew up listening and studying classical music, which typically resounds some way in his music. He studied piano, violin, guitar, and percussion throughout his school years, and is currently focused on the piano and digital instruments. In the near future He hopes to
start working on other instrumental CD's with orchestration, and a Vocal project with his wife. Thad is also a dedicated youth pastor, and worship leader, whose passion is to serve the Lord. Thad's original intention for composing music is for background music, or for times of meditation or relaxation, especially for his three young children. His music is designed for a time of calm easy listening or for events where background music is needed. Thad’s music has been played all over the world, in daycares, spa’s, retail stores, and business offices, for art shows, dinner parties, banquets, and weddings.
Thad's mission is to simply serve the Lord and be His vessel! Thad desires to use his gifts and talents to glorify the Lord, draw others to Him, and help create an atmosphere that provides the listener with relaxing meditative music to unwind, and also relax from the stress of every day living. Other than writing music, Tha'd's focus in ministry is Youth pastor (6+years) and leading Worship with his wife (12+years). To express my faith through the talents God has given me, and to reach Christ through music.
Thad's newest Cd released in 2012, described as Thad's most peaceful CD to date, music that fits your life, relaxing yet moving; the perfect blend of relaxing and inspirational music! Notes from the Composer: The Road Home CD is really two fold. The music not only conveys the joy of home here on earth (family and friends, a life lived) but it is also about The road we take to eternity. Life is full of choices, one after another, what is important to me is to make sure I am making the right ones. I also made a choice many years ago as a child to follow Christ, and allow Him to eventually lead me to my final Home in Heaven. The choices I make now reflect that decision to follow Him, and I continue to look to Heaven and His Kingdom to come!!
lLove Without Words Thad's newest CD released in 2010 is dedicated to family and friends, and reflects the passion and love He has for them through the expression of music; pure, relaxing, and inspirational piano, blending classical and contemporary sounds, music you can relax to. The CD also depicts the importance of showing and demonstrating the love of Christ through service and truth, and is based on scriptures found in 1 John 3:18. My children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. The CD also expresses how we cannot fully understand Christ's love for us, or his plans for our life, especially not with words, whether spoken, written, or in our mind. 1 Corinthians 2:9. But as it is written, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard," nor has it entered into the heart of man, "the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." Notes from the composer: The release of this CD marks 10 years of marriage to my beautiful wife Laura. The love we share has not only helped to inspire the music you hear, but also create a love that words cannot describe. I hope and pray that these songs will also be for you as they have for me, a reflection of time spent with loved ones, moments remembered, and memories cherished for a lifetime.
VAST, Thad's second CD, released in 2008 is a musical journey and expression of passion, emotion, and experiences, created to convey the blessings received from God's overwhelming love, mercy, and goodness. Based on scriptures found in Ephesians 3:14-21 which says: For this cause I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height, and to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, forever. Amen. Notes from the composer: From the healing of my son Ross, the gifts of family, and the wonder of His creation; to the leading of his still small voice, the peace in His arms, and the praise He alone deservies, these songs are a testimony in my life of God's Vast immeasurable love, mercy and goodness. This is my offering...
Impromputs Vol.1 CD released in 2009 was a sort of experiment in the making. Thad spends many hours recording improv, and decided to put together a CD containing songs created over a period of about a year (2008). The Impromptus Vol. 1 CD is the result. Thad Plans on releasing more volumes in coming years. By definition an impromptu is a musical composition or performance with little or no previous preparation, such as an improvisation. Although there is generally no form or structure associated with an impromptu, it did in the 19th Century, become a term used for compositions with clear-cut forms, such as ternary and rondo. Pieces such as Four Impromptus, Op. post. 142 (D. 935) by Schubert, and impromptus by Chopin and Liszt, often used some form or structure. Thad’s impromptus typically have no form or structure, and are created by simply hearing or briefly playing a melody or musical idea, then improvising through the piece while beginning the recording process. Each piece is then completed primarily with little or no preparation. Thad typically spends several hours a week practicing improvisation, and recording his sessions as he practices, which in-turn has produced the impromptus created so far.
Thad's first CD created in 2006, a sort of musical experiment to test the waters of solo piano composition. Thad put together songs created from as early as his childhood, (Tapestry, Mother's Devotion, and Remember Me) through his College years, to create a one of a kind collage of musical ideas. The theme behind Grand Design is the beauty of God's creation, and the Grand plans for His people. Based on scriptures found in Jeremiah 29:11-13, For I know the plans I have you, says the Lord; plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you shall seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

If you have ever wondered about the names of my songs, this is for you! The first song I feel needs an explantion is Longing for Emma off of my first album Grand Design: When I first married my wife, I always had a strong desire to be a father, even more so to be a daddy's girl. I could remember seeing some of my friends with their daughters, and longing for the day when I too could hold close, laugh with, and spoil my own Sweet Girl (Another Song off of my album Love Without Words). Well after about 6 years of marriage we gave birth to our second child, a little girl we happily named Emma! So glad that not only did the song came true, but to this day she continues to inspire new music! I have frequently gotten this one, "where did the name Mayapple Road come from." This song actually represents my previous job, and my busy schedule working everyday as a social worker. This is actually a road I would drive by frequently while I was working. this song is in contrast to A Day on Hamilton Street, which is a reflection of my childhood and where I grew up. Both songs are available on the album Love Without Words.
