Album Notes
Hi New Friends and Fans,
The songs I perform are about life, romance and love, …. Mostly Love… My goal is to take you with me on that emotional journey of Life and Love. I hope you enjoy the fusion of Christopher Marlowe's arrangements and my interpretation of these wonderful songs.
20 % OF THE PROCEEDS OF EACH CD SOLD will be DONATED to: GILDA'S CLUB NEW YORK CITY. WHY GILDA'S CLUB? I don’t know anyone who’s life has not been affected by cancer. Both of my parents died from cancer and I have many survivors in my immediate circle of friends. People with cancer and their families often times feel isolated, confused and frightened and Gilda’s Club across the country is a place where you can find the resources that you need to move forward and get well. All programs are offered free of charge. In rough economic times its so important to give back when we can to our communities and this cd is just my way of doing that.

Warmest Regards,

This album is direct, honest and beautiful. Shirley has a way of reaching into your heart and helping you to feel the beauty of each song and what it means to you. The music - simply piano and voice - is bold in its simplicity and richness. Buy this CD if you like to luxuriate in a musical experience. I've heard this woman sing in person...she's a winner. And...she is donating 20% to charity. This is a win win for everyone.

I was introduced to the artist by a friend. The piano and voice just go hand in hand. You feel all the emotion and fun she had making this cd. I also enjoyed the mix of music. Her donating to the Gilda's fund just touched me. :)
Looking forward to the next cd.

Reminiscent of Eileen Farrell's seminal "I Got a Right to Sing the Blues", this album is the perfect marriage of an operatic voice to the 20th century American songbook. The voice is big and emotive, multicolored and capable of alighting perfectly on any emotion. Beautiful.

When I first heard this "voice" at Madison Square Garden last year I was totally amazed....What a beautiful sound.
Then after listening to the CD, I was hooked. The beauty of her voice and each song really touches you.
What else can I say but...... Shirley is simply amazing !
