Album Notes
"Around My World" was born from the expression of the human condition. The lyrics are simple, but convey the complex emotions that arise out of life's experiences. The title of the album reflects the multiple types of songs written for this album, from country to folk to bluegrass to straight up rock and roll.

If you love rock and roll, you'll love songs like Damaged, all about the inner conflicts felt when a love goes wrong, and a new love knocks on the door. You'll also enjoy the urgent beat of Flashback with its killer guitar solo (by world-class flamenco and rock artist Tom Duarte) and its message about overcoming a love affair that just won't die. A stand-out rocker on the album is the iconic I'm Not Your Girlfriend, with its catchy melody and lyrics that you'll find yourself singing for days after hearing it.

For a softer but very beautiful sound, listen to Breaking, or Tell Me About Paris. Both of these ballads feature beautiful vocals and instrumental work. Breaking showcases the tight harmonies added by Tracy Parker, an accomplished singer and bassist (who plays on nearly every track on the album), which make this song so memorable. The beautiful melody and Tracy Parker's exquisite harmonies on Mourning Dove have already made it a favorite among listeners. Tell Me About Paris is another of the most requested songs on the album, with lyrics that everyone can relate to as they sing along.

Voice of America is a classic folk song written about the Boomers - an anthem, a theme song. It takes us through life from a Boomer's special point of view, and makes it clear that this generation still has something to say. The song ends with call to all generations to speak out about what's right.

Rock your country self with Walk Slow or enjoy the classic country ballad Tickets at the Door. Rounding out the album is the hip-hop influenced Sonic Boom, which is a drums and vocal jam.

Whatever type of music you're in the mood for - Around My World satisfies!
