“Richard Pierce Milner’s music stands out. It is not New Age, not jazz, not traditional blues or stride-based Americana, but a blend of all of these. Milner has an undeniable melodic air, and I recommend him as a talented and dedicated musician,” says John Schaefer of National Public Radio’s New Sounds. Lyrical, jazzy, emotional and magical is how others have described Milner’s music.
“Richard Pierce Milner is a master of the piano’s complex possibilities – that’s evident on every track of ‘A Sense of Place’ – and his melodic instinct deftly magnifies an already considerable compositional dexterity,” says Akademia.
Richard Pierce Milner’s compositions have been broadcast nationally over National Public Radio and performed at Lincoln Center. Milner has appeared in solo concerts at Carnegie and Merkin Recital Halls and Symphony Space in New York City. He has also written for the Martha Graham Dance Company and has been an artist in residence at the University of Illinois, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and at the Helen Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, New Mexico. From 2010-2017 Milner was Artist in Residence at Na Bolom in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.
