Album notes from Rob:
Wow! This album has been a long time coming. Songs from all my contemporary piano albums were used to create the remixes. 7 of the 10 tracks are brand new. We included and remastered 3 tracks from my 2006 remix EP, Return. We felt they had to be added to the album flow as they fit so well with the concept. The very first track, "Air Cooled", is from a previously unreleased song I composed the parts for almost a decade ago.

The music is intentionally quite different from my solo contemporary piano work ... click here to read the full story behind the album.

Album notes from Rob:
Themes on the album range from my awesome baby girl, interesting travel, falling in love (an updated song I composed for my wife before we were engaged), to dealing with strife. The album is mainly about rebuilding, growing and becoming a parent, but it also has a universal aspect. With the current economic crisis, the title and theme hold a lot of relevance. We have all faced and continue to face tough times. My hope is that this album provides a sense of strength and renewal. Enjoy!

Return - Remix EP (2006)
allMeadow and Rob Costlow
Downtempo Remixes
3 Tracks (14:24)

The mixing genius, allMeadow, sampled three of Rob's songs and created this relaxing downtempo adventure. We're looking forward to working more with allMeadow in the future.

Return to Flat Rock (5:36)
Fruitful (4:58)
Respect (3:50)

"Return to Flat Rock" samples "True Gemini"
"Fruitful" samples "I Do"
"Respect" samples "Family"

Album notes from Rob:
The world of podcasting brought allMeadow and my music together. I'm a big fan of trance, techno and downtempo. This EP was a test.

The result is we broke some new ground (at least for me) and I'm extremely pleased how the remixes came out. A new way to listen to piano.

Exclusively released to digital networks.

Sample and purchase on iTunes or Amazon.

Lyrics to "Return to Flat Rock" (sung by allMeadow):

lay me down
peaceful town
even tide
easy ride

lay me down
peaceful town
never lied
easy ride

Rob Costlow
Melodic Contemporary Piano

Preview Rob's second contemporary piano release. Purchase the entire ablum in Rob's online store.


All songs composed and performed by Rob Costlow
Produced by Rob Costlow and Dusk Bennett
Engineered by Dusk Bennett
Mastering by Bill Dooley

Album notes from Rob:
I recorded Woods of Chaos in HD at 192kHz - 24 bit. The songs are meant to be loud and more in your face. The album is a reflection of my battles, successes and determination to move forward. There is a lot of venting exemplified with intense and heavy notes throughout the songs. I'm not scared anymore. The "Woods of Chaos" will always be there, but I'm able to overcome the beasts and find peace. Please create your own experience with each song.
