. . . a coffeehouse for your spirit, JavaMusiK promotes music without words - a universal language with no need for translation.
The JavaMusiK Label markets & distributes a collection of music and merchandise created by Colorado composer/arranger/pianist Jeff Van Devender.
"His piano melodies have been described as a blending of classical, jazz and rock influences with a touch of soul. Van Devender's music is sometimes best described as 'Jim Brickman introduces George Winston to Elton John.' Listen as you are transported to another time and place." Scott Jeffries, publicist
Since 1998, Van Devender has created and marketed 3 instrumental cd's of original and traditional piano-based music.
-Ascend was recorded and released in 1998.
-Bending Chords was recorded and released in 2002.
-Don't Ever Forget was recorded and released in 2009.
Van Devender performs several times throughout the year primarily in coffeehouses, churches and for private functions. His music is also available for licensing and has been used in several high profile projects onscreen and off.
Jeff Van Devender has been a music educator in Colorado and Iowa for nearly 20 years, recently serving on the Colorado Music Educators Association as a state representative. He has been composing for piano since 1980, only recently beginning to compile these compositions into recordings for distribution. He also plays piano for two churches every Sunday and has been an in-house pianist at several resort hotels in Aspen, CO. His piano and music have a pleasingly melodic yet gracefully hypnotic quality which draws the listener in for more.
