U.K. composer/pianist Helen Jane Long announces a handful of U.S. dates in November. The jaunt supports her latest album, “Identity,” and she will be accompanied by her string section, The London Players.

More than talented, Long is gifted. The mastermind started playing piano by ear at age four and went on to be classically trained. She also taught herself how to play cello, violin, and guitar.
Her credential are endless. Long has composed scores for 10 feature and short films, seven commercials and 11 documentaries in addition to her four albums. She was hired by Howard Shore in 2003 as the Musical Score Continuity Director for the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.

She released her second album, Embers, on her own BLE Records after ending her contract with Warner Classics, who dropped her debut, Porcelain. Embers was the most requested LP on London’s Classic FM radio and earned her the “honor of being the only female composer in the Classic FM Hall of Fame.”

Her U.S. gigs wrap Nov. 16 in San Francisco and tickets purchased for the SF show include a CD copy of Identity, “redeemable with your ticket stub at Amoeba Music.”
