Jim Brickman’s Discography
Jim’s career has spanned over 20 years.
He has transformed the popularity of solo piano playing his original, pop-style instrumentals and inviting star-studded vocal collaborators to join in. He has since become the most charted Adult Contemporary artist and best selling solo pianist to date.
Instead of listing every album over Jim’s entire career we’ll just start here.
Jim’s Favorite Albums
No Words (1994)
In my attempt to get a record deal, I sat down at the piano, composed some songs and recorded demos for record labels to hear. The record label liked them so much those demos became m first CD, No Words.
Picture This (1997)
One of the great moments in my life was when “Valentine,” the vocal selection on Picture This went to Number 1. Martina McBride and I were both starting out. When I first heard her sing I knew she had the voice I wanted for the song.
The Gift (1997)
The Brickman style evolved with my love of Christmas music. I was thrilled to interpret the traditional holiday songs, but when the record label told me to write a new Christmas classic I turned to what I new best – romance. “The Gift” was my opportunity to work with country artist Colin Raye. I was a huge fan. Were were set to record and still had no female lead for the duet, until I heard Susan Ashton.
My very first Christmas tour was launched with the popularity of The Gift.
Simple Things (2001)
After the tragedy of September 11, the need to celebrate the Simple Things in life was apparent. The simplicity of a melody on solo piano was not only calming and reassuring, it was taken to heart like a security blanket. My favorite song will always be “Simple Things” sung by Beth Neilsen Chapman. The message of this song says it all.
My Grammy nominated CD Peace has an eclectic blend of music and voices, but with styles that sound great together. The CD was released for Christmas, but I wanted the title track to be a more universal message. I saw it as a song about people finding “Peace” within their own world. I’m always in awe of those who bring my songs to life, and this was no exception.
I love the old hymns and this album has unique arrangements of some of my favorites. I’ve also included some original inspirational solo piano music. Faith is a special album for me because it was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009 for Best New Age Album. It was an amazing experience going to the Grammy Awards and being around the best in the business.
Magic of Christmas (2013)
This enchanting collection of Christmas classics and original instrumentals puts you at ease to enjoy the joy of the season. Joining me is the legendary Johnny Mathis, who adds his unforgettable sound to “Sending You A Little Christmas.” This album really captures the magic of the season.
Soothe Volume 1(2015)
Comfort and Joy (2015)
The song I’m most proud of on Comfort and Joy is “Hallelujah, I Believe.” It started out as a message of I still believe in Christmas, getting back to the essence of what Christmas is all about. About believing in something, about no matter what you’re religion is or spirituality is, it’s a time of year that is really special.
Soothe for Sleep Volume 2 (2016)
Freedom Rings (2016)
There’s something about classic patriotic songs that fills me with pride. I chose some of my favorite songs to Brickman-ize in tribute to all Americans; those who serve and those who celebrate this great country of ours.
