Praise for

If these Walls Could Talk:

"With seemingly simple brushstrokes, Jorge Mejia summons his experiences, his ghosts, in a fascinating personal exploration that transforms an old Miami Beach building into a living creature, a mirror of his life and the city where he lives; he does it so well that his song is the song of the city itself, from sleepy town to vibrant metropolis. A musical painting that is as nostalgic as it is fresh, as bucolic as it is renewing, without forgetting a welcome touch of romance and even humor." (Sebastian Spreng, music critic, Miami Clásica, Artburst Miami)

Praise for Jorge Mejia's An Open Book:

"...virtuoso, captivating pieces..." (Billboard)

 "...an instant classic...a rigorous and eclectic work." (El Nuevo Herald)

Chapter 2

There Was Always

A Girl

Growing up I was a sensitive, sensitive - did I mention sensitive - kid who lay under pianos, ruefully dissecting every single last word she said. Because there was always a girl, the kind of girl you take one look at and you die kind of girl, the kind of girl who all at once fills you with power, love, grit, yearning and, inexplicably, a desire that the world have more lilac in it. The kind of girl who makes it all okay, except for when she‘s smiling at that jerk, Alex Grady.

 

You know the kind of girl I'm talking about, yes? That first girl who tore you up inside and yet you liked it? Longing for her was almost a sport (‘Hey, let's go to the movies’ - ‘I can't, I'm longing for Clara tonight’), that first love, the one who comes up in therapy almost as much as your parents, yes? That one. 

 

So now, as you listen to this piece, think of that feeling, the feeling of that person, that first person to ever - beautifully - tie your stomach up in knots.

About
Jorge Mejia Headshot 030822.jpg

A Latin Grammy nominee featured in Billboard Magazine's "From the Desk Of", “Executive of the Week”, “Latin Power Players” and "Power Player" lists, classical pianist, Steinway artist  and composer Jorge Mejia defies easy categorization. His impassioned performances and evocative compositional style are enriched by his role as a leader in the Latin music world, infusing all facets of his work with a keenly global perspective.

My name is Jorge Mejia. I am a music executive and a musician. Or, depending on the time of day, a musician and a music executive.

 

I studied classical piano performance at the New World School of the Arts, the New England Conservatory of Music, and finally graduated with a classical piano performance degree from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. 

 

Upon graduation, I did an internship at Sony Music and today I oversee Sony Music Publishing for the Latin American and US Latin markets. What this means is that I get to work with some of the most incredible songwriters and artists on the planet, people I can only admire.

 

It also means that I have front row seats to see what it takes to be a successful artist and songwriter, which is nothing short of prodigious dedication and an almost hallucinatory belief in yourself and your art. I have such respect and admiration for the men and women who pursue an art form, any art form, and who have the magic within themselves to be successful at it.

 

I have always said that music chooses you as opposed to you choosing it. Which means that in parallel to my work as a music executive, I have continued working on my artistic projects, which have included rock bands, a music memoir, an album of solo and orchestral piano preludes and, most recently, my new project "If Only These Walls Could Talk".

“As is tradition, on June 19 a new anniversary of the Youth Orchestra of the Sodre is celebrated, with a gala on the main stage of the Adela Reta National Auditorium that will be dedicated to touring the American landscapes. The soloist on the piano will be maestro Jorge Mejía, a Colombian artist who will perform "Preludes", the work of his authorship for narrator, piano and orchestra."

“I sat down with Jorge Mejía in his home, at the foot of a beautiful Steinway, where he generously interlaced original pieces and sections of well-known melodies to better illustrate his responses. It turns out to be a particularly suitable dynamic given the concept of the most recent addition of its repertoire. His most ambitious project as a composer and performer is titled An Open Book: A Musical Memoir, and offers a narrative as a prelude to each instrumental piece..."

“Concert pianist and classical composer Jorge Mejia talks about his 'An Open Book: A Memoir in Music,' an e-book in which Mejia composed music to reflect the text in each chapter.”
