ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If I told you this music was food for the soul, some might think I was talking about soft, contemplative music. Where there are a couple of sweet, soft love songs and one that could bring you to tears, sometimes food for the soul mean celebration! Living All the Way is such an album. Several of the songs are great for good aerobic workout; taking in those upbeat thoughts while breathing fresh live into your body. Each song has its own story. It is my hope you are inspired and lifted emotionally by each one.

1. Living All the Way – You know how we can tend to second-guess ourselves, especially when making big decisions or trying something new? This song came to me when I realized that ultimately, there are no "wrong choices" if I am living the highest truth I know and learning from each experience. Sure, things don't always turn out like I expect and life doesn't always get easier, but it does get better. Dedicated to Katy Moore, my beautiful, supportive friend.
2. Why Do I Do It – Yes, I'm a musician, but I haven't quit my day job yet. :) I work a desk job. I wake up to an alarm clock. I am faced with a seemingly endless stream of "to do" items that often seem trivial. And dare I mention office politics? But there is a reason I keep doing it and it's not just the money. Dedicated to those of us who, well, you’ll know yourself when you hear the song.
3. Hang Up the Phone – Ever notice the mind chatter that's constantly nags? It might tell you to worry, be angry, feel bad... Unless these thoughts drive us take steps to be better, they are dis-empowering, useless, and destructive. This song reminds me to cut those negative thoughts short, give myself the benefit of the doubt, and be more generous in my thinking about myself.
4. Just Be Happy – I stay young at heart, but that doesn't mean I don't have a few years on me. All my life, I've tried to be the best person I could be. From time to time, I've sought the advice and wisdom of great teachers, mentors, religious practitioners, shamans, and even the occasions psychic. This song sums up the amazingly consistent messages I've received over the years.
5. Truly Love Again – This song is inspired by and dedicated to Al Silva, my personal hero. I’m a lucky woman.
6. Heart’s Desire – My wedding wishes for Linda and Rafael Munoz was the inspiration for this song.
7. More Fun – This song was originally conceived as a singing telegram for a barbershop quartet with my son, but he refuses to take any credit whatever. :) It turned into a fun, jazzy, bluesy, confection with my buddy Tripp Sprague on the sax (and one of the co-producers of the album). The arrangement suggested by Daniel Nahmod (other co-producer) was so wildly different than how I imagined it that I almost tossed it of the track list. Do you ever have the experience of being so fixed in your idea of something that you can't even see how a different point of view could be better? Yeah, it was like that. l had to "Hang Up the Phone" on the old arrangement to get to this piece of fun.
8. Would I Have Walked Past Him – You may want to be quiet and still when you listen to this one. It was inspired by Kin Crawford whose journey caused me to challenge my complacency. This song is a true story about a friend with a heart condition who people ignored as he went unconscious waiting for a bus on a busy Los Angeles street corner. I have walked by people on the street I assumed to be homeless, drunk, or just plain scary. His story made me want to take a closer look and consider just who I might be walking past.
9. Ocean In Motion – Jumping the waves at Torrey Pines State Beach is a favorite activity that Daniel (my nephew) and I do together. After I'd been clobbered by a few of those waves, we started talking about how they were a good analogy for life. Resist the waves and they get you. Go with them and sometimes you still get clobbered, but mostly, it's a lot more fun. This is a terrific workout, warm-up song; gets your heart beating. Good times!
10. Keep Listening – This song is on the spiritual side (I use the "G" word). It's about listening for the still, small voice that is NOT the "Hang Up the Phone" type of thought, but Higher Wisdom, whatever name you may give it. Thanks to Reverend Wendy Craig-Purcell whose thoughtful talks have empowered many a listener.
11. Keep Listening Reprise, Family Version – Keep Listening was the first song I recorded for this album. I originally invited my family to help me with the backup vocals. This rougher version of the last choruses and a bunch of ad libs came from those original track and is very, very cute. Thanks to my beautiful backup team: Geoff Lizar, Daniel, Heather, and Ray Nagey and Barbara Peisch.
