ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the Composer:
At the age of 15, I became a union musician with Local 47 in Hollywood. Recording seemed to be a better platform for creativity than live music because when you're young and have original material to record, you either get signed to a major label or you do your own thing, if you've got the money to back yourself. I always had a dream of having my own studio so I wouldn't have to worry about "the clock" and how much money I was spending. After years of work as a studio musician, that dream became a reality. I visualized this coming to be. It seems we must be very careful what we visualize because visualization is the power that makes things happen. I have a hanging mural in my home that says "Be careful what dreams you dream for dreams come true".

I love recording! I love the studio. It's truly the final sanctuary of musical thoughts. When I write a song, the simple message is the most important piece that must be preserved. Elaborating on the original concept should mean that, through a process of evolution, it becomes a work of beauty. Capturing definitive performances on a recording is what I strive for when I produce music to share with the world. Live performance is gone in an instant, where a recording is like a painting that has been captured forever. Many times I've come to the end of a recording session, not thinking that I've done anything special. Then, the next day, I play it back and hear interesting places my mind was going and realize that there was a lot of deep thoughts that I had to step back from to appreciate.

I wanted this recording to be about happy times and happy places. Most of the music expresses how much I enjoy being alive. When I made the decision to produce music full time, it gave me an opportunity to love my work more than ever, regardless of how much I was paid. To do my own work is not at all about the money and the work I accomplish in the studio is its own reward.

Share your music.....
It's important to share your music. When somebody hears your song, it becomes a part of their life because they experienced it and will take it with them for the rest of their life. Making that contribution is vitally important as an artist and I have to stress that people should not keep their gift to themselves. I hope to continue sharing my music with others because it gives my life a greater meaning. We're all blessed to have each other to share it all with. When your music makes people feel better, you've improved their life.
