Album Notes
Breathing August is about small moments of deep joy in raising a family. The album began as a backyard music party for my 52nd birthday party; the cover drawing is rendered from photos of that day. David brought the tune, Jane's Full Deck, as a present, and I commenced on what I called the Full Deck Project: For roughly 52 weeks after that party, I spent a few hours a week in Victor Smith's studio, learning, listening, and recording. Victor's command of choice adjectives with which to support a creative process is just one measure of his brilliance as a recording engineer. I am grateful to the musicians--ErRatica, Lark In the Evening, at Georgia Strait Guitar Workshop, and in my family--and to my parents and Akie for their voices, music, and encouragement.

Pure delight!
This album sparkles and shines with superb song writing and excellent musicianship. Jane's songs have a unique human warmth that brought more than a few tears to my eyes. Her loving celebration of her marriage and her family are an inspiration! Great album.
