Internationally acclaimed pianist, producer, and film composer Paul Cardall is known for his unique, heartfelt musical style. Indeed, his fans say Cardall’s music literally soothes the heart and nurtures the soul.

Such descriptions are ironically appropriate since the artist was born with essentially half a functioning heart. That life-threatening congenital defect as well as a series of difficult surgeries and heart-related illnesses have shaped Cardall’s musical style and inspired his dozens of popular melodic compositions and arrangements.

Notably, his thirteenth studio album titled New Life debuted as the number one Billboard New Age album in February 2011 and held a position in the top five for more than 30 weeks. Radio stations reporting to Reviews New Age recognized New Life as the best album of 2011. Music critic Michael Debbage wrote, “There is no filler on this brilliant album that has even surpassed Yanni and Enya on the Billboard New Age Chart, hitting No. 1 without any major label support or media attention – Amazing!”

The aptly named album was Cardall’s first recording after undergoing a life-saving heart transplant in September 2009. It was during the 385 days of waiting on the organ donation list that a hospitalized Cardall turned to blogging as a means of maintaining perspective while facing death and sharing his experience with family and friends. Over a million people followed the blog and own one of his albums.

Cardall believes his music “has the power to heal and inspire others.” Indeed, audiences who attend a Paul Cardall concert or speech typically come away feeling more alive and grateful for all that is good in this beautiful, yet often chaotic world. One well-known fan, Fox News Anchor Bret Baeir, who has a son with a similar congenital heart defect, has said, “Paul inspires me and my family. He exudes optimism.”

Steinway & Sons Artist Manager Jenn Gordan said, “Cardall’s commitment to excellence in his artistic and professional achievements make it most appropriate that he is included on the Steinway Artist Roster, a list of the most accomplished and discriminating artists in the world.”

In addition to his recording career, Cardall founded his own record Stone Angel Music in 1999. He launched cellist Steven Sharp Nelson’s recording career with the popular “Sacred Cello Series” that debuted on the Billboard Classical Charts. Cardall also helped establish acoustic guitar virtuoso Ryan Tilby with a solo career. As part of his Stone Angel Music venture, Cardall owns a prestigious recording studio in the heart of Salt Lake City featuring a large orchestral live room, piano room, drum room, iso-booth, and two mix rooms; including offices for the record label.

In addition to his music, Cardall actively promotes various causes involving congenital heart disease and speaking out about what has been described as the nation’s number one birth defect. He created an endowment at Salt Lake Community College that funds scholarships for students born with congenital disease. His long-list of awards and recognitions includes an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from the Utah State Board of Regents.

The 25th Hour Radio Show began in September 2012 with hosts Rob Fairless & Randy Ashby interviewing up and coming bands from the Southern Illinois local area. Since that time “The 25th Hour Radio Show” has grown into one of the top celebrity talk shows in the Midwestern United States. We were honored to have Brandon McDuffee represent his amazing band Wabash on our anniversary show. We love to showcase up and coming acts and this is one you have to hear.

Wabash began its journey in June 2012 in the humble cornfields of Louisville, Illinois, off the banks of the Little Wabash River. After a childhood of farming, and an insatiable desire to play guitar, Quinn Bible felt an irresistible urge to pack his bags and move to the music capital of the world, Nashville, Tennessee.

While in Tennessee, Quinn met singer/pianist Brandon McDuffee and quickly struck up a strong friendship, and an even stronger musical partnership. After making music as a duo for some time, they later decided to expand their horizons and brought on drummer James Alan and bassist Luke McDuffee. Guitarist Alex McDuffee would soon follow them into the group in June 2014.

A strong family bond, and an intense love for bands such as The Beatles, The Band, Wilco and Dr. Dog inspires Wabash.
