ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The gift of music was givin to me at a very young age by God. It took me a very long time (17 years) to be able to put into words what I saw myself doing with this gift. I am an only child. My mother and father and myself are very close. But it hasn't always been this way. I was 13 when I smoked my first joint. I was one year younger when I smoked my first ciggarett. For me, marijuana WAS a gateway drug. By the age 17, I was well on my way down the road of drug addiction. I was also in denial about my addiction (but what addict is like "hey I'm an addict!" ?) Fastforward about 3 years. I was 19 years old and decided that I was going to move back in with my parents whom had moved to Columbia, MO. So I bought a one way ticket to Missouri. This was the hardest move I had ever made. I was leaving Oregon, where I was born and grew up. I was getting ready to get on a plane and fly more than a thousand miles away from everything and everyone that I knew. On the plane leaving Oregon a man sat next to me and said that he could see that God had big plans for me and to make sure that I paid attention to what God was telling me in life. At that point, I realized that I must be on the right track because some random guy that I had never seen in my life just told me so!!?? It was hard not to beleive this man was a prophet of some kind. I landed in St Louis, MO that night, April 22 2006 at about 9:30pm. My parents picked me up at the airport and off we went to Columbia, MO about 125 miles west of STL. My drug problem did not go away just because I moved so far away from what I thought were ALL of my problems. I hit rock bottom and decided that I needed to get help. So I admitted myself to a rehab program. I thought I was cured and went on about my life after completing the program. Well turns out I was missing a very important aspect to my continuous recovery. It is now 2011 and I am on my way back to a rehabilitation program and this time I'm talking to God EVERYDAY CONTINUOUSLY and not just when I need Him. THIS WAS THAT IMPORTANT ASPECT I DIDN'T HAVE THE FIRST TIME. I've since, recovered, self-produced an album, started attending a church, started my own business, playing the piano 4 plus hours a day and making a living at it. So for all the success, talent and creativity you see and hear throughout my music carreer please give the honor and glory to the right source. Not me but, GOD.
Thank you for your interest in this music and me as a person and an artist. Bless you all.

A thoroughly delightful and powerful album
I can't get enough of this CD!! There is something profound in the music that soothes my soul. I keep buying more copies to share with friends and professional clients, because it speaks for itself. I'm looking forward to more from this gifted artist.
