Lori Nicely is a rare new talent in composing contemporary piano and instrumental music.  Lori's music has been used for national TV and radio programming, and selections from her debut music CD, "Our Secret" have been included on the playlists of many Top 10 Adult Contemporary/Smooth Jazz radio stations around the country.  Lori's sound has been likened to that of hit composer David Foster, with singable melodies and lush instrumentation, having the versatility to be effective for both film music background and for pure listening enjoyment.   David Foster's long time saxophonist, David Boruff, is featured on several tracks of the "Our Secret" CD.

Thought about advertising? Thought about using original music in your advertising? There are several advantages of having original music in your advertisements. Among the top 3 are:

1. You can have an original theme that is original to your product, service, etc., and use variations of that theme for many commercials over many years (e.g., Lexus Christmas commercial).

2. The theme creates an emotional connection with the audience. The theme music or jingle helps gives your product or service an identity and brings it to life (something that can’t be achieved through print advertising or broadcast advertising using “canned music”).

3. Over time, when people hear the music associated with the product, they automatically think of the product (with or without seeing it – they hear it and automatically visualize it).
