ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As previously mentioned on my album "Home Away From Home" --

-- Ever since I was young, music has been a part of my life. My first instrument was a gift of a guitar from my parents, and then I moved onto the organ. At one point I even played a little on the drums, but my passion has always been singing. Early on I performed concerts for Girl Scouts, several outdoor shows, and even at a friend’s wedding. I recorded several tracks at a small country recording studio in the late 90's. This had been a lifelong dream which I could finally say I accomplished.

Life changes then bought me from Australia to the United States and my new friends encouraged me to take up singing once again. Now being a Long Haul Truck driver, I figured this would give me plenty of time to practice, so I thought… why not! My first project when I returned to the recording studio, this time in the United States, was to record three songs to be played at a friend’s memorial service. This was then followed that up with a Christmas album that was given out as a Christmas gift for friends. My music was becoming popular and friends wanted more and more! ----

Since then I have been working on providing more music for everyone to enjoy! I have released cover singles in 2014 and my album "Home Away From Home" in 2015. Patrick McGuire (Patrick McGuire Recording Inc. Arlington TX) has always encouraged me to reach higher goals, and this started me writing lyrics for my own original work. A fellow co-worker and friend, Keith Sampson, has been assisting me with melodies to some of these songs and together with musicians and friends, Milo Deering, Andrew Frye, Brent Dacus and Kathy McGuire, this period of time has been truly inspirational.

This recording has a very significant meaning for me. The lyrics represent the feelings I felt and the pride I have for this country when becoming an American citizen back in 2010. This song not only has a powerful message, but has the perfect melody that creates a sense of celebration. I hope you all enjoy this song as I feel it has captured what the feelings of being an American is all about!
