Sandra Piller Opens Her Memory Book for Video Dedicated to her Late Husband Michael Piller
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (MuseWire) — Music videos are not usually as emotional as the latest one from Shady Hill Records artist Sandra Piller but in this case, “There is no way I can watch this without tears,” says the singer as she reflects on her late husband, Michael Piller, the subject of the song, “Love Goes On.”
“This song is a memorial to Michael and the love he and Sandra shared,” states Jane Bach, co-writer and producer of the recording. “As one of the most moving music videos I’ve ever seen, it’s like a photo album or memory book that has come to life,” Bach adds.
The song is the title track of a recently-released 6-song EP dedicated simply “…for Michael.” Recognized by millions of fans for his role as the executive producer and writer of more than a hundred episodes of the Star Trek television series, Michael Piller also wrote the feature film “Star Trek Insurrection.”
The video features personal photographs from their engagement, wedding, honeymoon, and family life. “Seeing these photos is so joyful and so sad at the same time,” Piller says. “But mainly all this serves to show how someone can carry love with them across the boundaries of time.”
Working with Bach “is a joy,” notes Piller. “Jane is a terrific writer and producer.” As a veteran music professional in Nashville, Bach penned number one hits by Reba McIntire and Ray Price, as well as hit songs for many other country artists. “It was such a thrill to have the opportunity to co-write all the songs on Sandra’s EP with some of Nashville and LA’s most respected songwriters,” Bach states.
Sandra Piller (www.sandrapiller.com) has been appearing in songwriter rounds led by Bach at venues in Nashville, New York, Los Angeles and at Star Trek conventions around the country. “Next year is the 20th anniversary of ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ which Michael co-created, executive produced, and wrote 173 scripts,” Piller notes, “and I’ve been invited to take part in celebrations and memorials all across the country.”
Shady Hill Records (www.shadyhillrecords.com) was founded several years ago to record, distribute, and foster the cause of contemporary country artists whose work respects and reflects the strong traditions of the roots of American music.
“Love Goes On,” the EP and each of the six songs, may be found for purchase, streaming, or download on iTunes and Amazon as well as the Shady Hill Records site.
