Album Notes
“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest; heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.” And THAT is the power of music!

"Rising Up" began as a challenge. As a new songwriter, I decided to write a new song each time I was scheduled to sing at my church home, Unity of Montclair. Once the subject of the sermon was selected, I would write a song to complement it. What a blessing it has been to stretch as an artist in this loving, supportive environment! This compilation of songs, is written in a variety of styles - pop, jazz, rock, doo-wop and even a little disco thrown in for good measure! It has been so much fun creating this music, and it is my hope that these songs will help to spread uplifting and positive messages to a world that could use a little joy boost! I invite you to take a listen in order to lift your spirit, and raise the vibration of our beautiful planet! When music is combined with positive, life affirming lyrics, a “rising up” is bound to happen!

Thank you
Many thanks to the talented musicians who graced this CD with their exceptional talents: Lee Finkelstein, Gregory Jones, Dave Anthony, Anton Denner, Vinnie Cutro and Dave Rimelis. Special thanks to Dave Stryker for generously giving of his time and talent to this project. Thanks also to all of the fabulous vocalists, including Tynia Thomassie, David McLean, Mike Delcioppo, Lila Hunter, Wincey, Bryant Barnett and the terrific West Orange High School Choir, led by William Farley. You were all so wonderful and a joy to work with! These songs would have never been created without the inspirational sermons given by Rev. Elizabeth Mora, Rev. Erin McCabe, Rev. Robert Brumet and Rev. Elizabeth Barca. Blessings! Thanks also to Amy and Shana Scott of mOdat for their brilliant video editing skills and much appreciation to Chris Drukker for his endless encouragement and patience in creating beautiful images and artwork (as well as the occasional therapy session ) Thanks SO MUCH to the generosity of my Indiegogo supporters, especially Steve Reid, Robert Martini, Candace and Drew Kucy as well as my loving papi – Corrado Vasquez. Hugs! Really big shout out to Rob, Bonnie, Noah and Luke Gatzke for exemplifying the phrase “It take a village.” Your kindness will never be forgotten. Much love and gratitude to my friends and family for encouraging me to realize my dream, especially my two angels, Mikey and Nick – the loves of my life. And last, but certainly not least, endless gratitude to my multitalented co-producer (as well as engineer, arranger, pianist and singer!) Ted Brancato for taking my ideas and turning them into gorgeous works of art. It has been an honor to work with you.
