Blomkest youth releases CD of original music


John Kraemer has always had a knack for playing piano by ear.

The 18-year-old rural Blomkest youth can hear a song on the radio or in church and sit down at his family's living room piano and recreate the tune in no time.

But since he was 15 years old, Kraemer has also been writing his own music -- mostly instrumentals for piano, but he's writing more songs with lyrics and is expanding into orchestra composition as well.

His music is gentle and contemplative.
