ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Prayer & Diagnosis
In October of 2014 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Upon receiving the diagnosis I wasn’t shocked or fearful. I knew in my heart that I was about to embark on a journey that would lead me to the answer of a fervent prayer that had been in my thoughts for over a year. The prayer was for guidance in fulfilling God’s will for, and in, my life for the reemainder of my life. I never shared this prayer with anyone, not even my husband Doug - and we share everything!

The reason I kept it to myself was because I didn’t think anyone who looked at my life from the outside would, or could, understand why I wouldn’t feel fulfilled. After all, I have a wonderful family life, many dear friends, a successful career, I’ve travelled the world sharing my music, and I’ve had some truly wonderful and unique experiences in my life...in and out of music. In spite of living a charmed life, as I began moving towards my mature years, I found myself feeling there was something missing. For a very long time I couldn’t put my finger on it but there was definitely a void that was rapidly spreading throughout my being.

With the blessing of my husband, in September of 2011 I moved to a lovely Brownstone in the center of Harlem in New York City. I moved there alone. I told everyone that I was doing so with the intention of expanding my career. I reasoned that by actually residing in the NYC, I would be available for new and different opportunities that just would not be possible without actually residing there. I was right! Although I had performed in New York on many ocassions, living there was key to career expansion.

When I left my home in Vancouver, I had no idea how long I would stay in NYC, but I did know that it was a temporary move. Some of the highlights of my stay was being invited to perform in countries that I had not yet been to, recording two CDs: State of the Art for Criss Cross Records (making me the first vocalist and female leader in the label’s 35+ year history); and Intimate Conversations, a self-produced CD on Origin Records that is in duo with some of the world’s greatest Jazz musicians that are personal friends; being invited to teach at Queens College in the Vocal Masters program; and performing in top Jazz venues in NYC.

With all these, and many more wonderful events occurring daily in my life, I still had that empty feeling inside. In my heart of hearts I made the trek to NYC in hopes of finding my calling. It was at that point that my “regular” prayers turned into what I call “fervent” prayer. My definition of fervent prayer is being in a state of total submission to the manifestation of my desire. Surrendering in this way means you no longer care about what, when, where, why, who, or how His/Her will manifest...but having faith, the knowingness that it will be done!

So yes, hearing the diagnosis of breast cancer only two weeks after my fervent praying was not a shock. I knew that in the end I would know exactly what I was to do with my life...for the rest of my life. God’s light would be shed on that patch of darkness and uncertainty and the hole would finally be filled in my being. I knew that everything I was about to experience was going to be necessary in order for me to fulfil God’s Will. Whatever contribution I was to make to the planet would be based on that, along with my life’s experience to date.

Meditation & Healing
Upon diagnosis I decided that a change of diet and adding meditation to my daily routine would be beneficial to prepping my body and mind for the upcoming journey.
For the diet, I cut out red meat and sugar and went 100% organic. My darling sister-in-law gifted me with a four day course in Transcendental Meditation. Though I had a wonderful and very experienced teacher, I knew before the four days were complete that TM wasn’t the most effective type of meditation for me.

In the meantime I began investigating other meditative styles. At this time I had been having frequent conversation with a long time friend about topics of a spiritual nature. She had recently discovered that she had the gift of heightened intuitive abilities and we engaged in fascinating conversations about her adventures in accessing those abilities via meditation.

Know that I grew up in the Baptist church and had a strong background in religion that over time evolved into a strong sense and understanding of my spirituality. So when my friend suggested I try guided meditation to consciously access my spiritual self I was very curious and receptive. She suggested I begin by listening to guided meditations by Lilian Eden. I did and those meditative sessions became a gateway to healing and creative adventures. It was two weeks after chemotherapy treatment, and two days before I was to have a CT mapping scan for radiation treatment, that I had a miraculous healing. I immediately cancelled the scan, as well as refused a five year program of taking a debilitating cancer drug. Today...and everyday...I am cancer free!

Music & Fulfilment
Through daily meditation I was gifted with countless original compositions. They came so rapidly that I had to use my cellphone voice memo to record them during the meditations. Through them I had incredible adventures that led to greater understanding, knowledge, and wisdom about my connection to God and the fulfilment of His/Her Will in my life from that point on. I understood that my entire life had been a fulfilment, but it was about to expand. The songs that I was gifted with through meditation were to be shared with the world. They are personal messages that offer healing, joy, hope, inspiration, guidance, reminders, and above all else...unconditional love for self and all others.

Interestingly enough this new music has taken me full circle back to my “first” music. Inspirational/Gospel. However, stylistically it is the culmination of my entire musical experience which incompasses Gospel, Rock and Roll, R&B, Blues, and Jazz. I am so happy and excited to share this music with you. May it bless you and be a vehicle for love and healing on all levels of your own existence.
