Today I’m presenting you to the track Fort St. James by the Canadian piano artist (Cory) Alstad. Cory has played the piano since the age of six and started releasing music a couple of years back. Besides his artist name Alstad he also releases music under these monikers: Floodplain (piano/guitar), Henri Bentley (piano), Clarico (piano focused cinematic chill) and Billie Ivory (piano).
The track Fort St. James was released on the piano compilation “Dream Chasers, Vol 3” on the 27th of august, 2021.
Tell us something about your track Fort St. James!
Fort St. James was inspired by the little town in central British Columbia where I spent the first 6 years of my life. Although my memories are sparse, there is a magical nostalgia that always accompanies the thought of it; the old mill where many of my friend’s parents worked, David Hoy Elementary school where I attended kindergarten and grade 1, the park across the street with the new, super high slide that was too high for me to go down (as per my mom’s strict instructions). Fort St. James was a beautiful, rugged and wonder-full town to spend the first years of my life.
Thanks for this track Cory!
