Album Notes
Two weeks after giving birth to my fourth child, it was discovered that I had a cancerous brain tumor. Two weeks later I had a piece of my brain, about the size of a large egg, removed from my right temporal lobe. That was two years ago. I'm now living with a terminal diagnosis and serious brain injury which affects virtually every aspect of my every day. Music has been my bridge to so many things; to my past, my recovery, my inner hopes and struggles, my happiness, and my health. I have been a musician all my life. I've performed since I was a young child, earned a bachelors and masters degree in music, and have worked as a professional singer, private voice instructor, and college music teacher.
There is no doubt that my involvement in music in the past is the reason I am as functional as I am now. Music spans both sides of the brain, and has taught mine to share functions between the two hemispheres. Thanks to this, I have not entirely lost those functions usually strictly associated with the portion of brain I had removed.
When I woke up after surgery, my first conscious effort was to search my brain to see if I still remembered my music. I do. Since then, it has been a key part of my recovery, and my most efficient way to express what I’m now going through.
This song, Dreamer, in part deals with some of my thoughts, heartache, and hopes as I came to grips with my current state. I hope you enjoy it.
