ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I like to sing. I always have. My dad whistled. My mom would hum. My brothers and I sang Latin hymns learned by heart at St. John Vianney's Catholic School. As a teenager I played the church organ for masses during the summer when the nuns were gone on retreat-$1 for a weekday mass, $2 for Sunday mass and $5 for funerals. I'd sing along with the choir who, out of guilt or piety, showed up at 8 AM on those sunny Minnesota mornings. I never thought to rebel until years later, only to discover that much of what I loved as a child is returning to me now.
When my own children were little I sang them lullabies. Long after they were asleep, there I'd be, still singing in the dark.
When I turned 50 years old, melodies and words began to wear grooves in my brain and so I began to write them down. I sang in the kitchen, in the bathtub, in the car and outside with the dogs.
Then the audience grew beyond my home. I have needed some courage to take this personal music out the door. What a satisfying thing it is to know that there are people who take comfort and joy in my melodies, my words and my voice. That's what this recording project is about.
