ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In May of 2000, music changed its tune for singer, actress, artist, producer Leslie Hyland-Rodgers. “Les, I’m so terrified. I don’t want to die. Would you sing to me? Perhaps it might make me feel better if you’d sing to me.” Sitting at her mother’s bedside at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, Leslie’s heart broke to hear such fear in her mother’s voice.

With her eyes closed, Leslie softly and meditatively sang prayerful words and melodies to her mother. She opened her eyes to discover that the nurse had opened the door to the room and the other cancer patients on the ward had gotten out of their beds and were standing in the doorway listening.

In that moment, Symphony of Soul was born.

Inspired by her experience at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Leslie founded Symphony of Soul that summer. Symphony of Soul is an Austin, Texas-based charity that provides live “musical medicine for the soul” to people who are confined in care centers. With a roster of more than forty professional musicians of all genres – classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk and more – Symphony of Soul musicians provide live music to everyone from infants to teenagers to senior citizens coping with cancer, homelessness, drug & alcohol addiction, mental illness, Alzheimer’s disease and other challenges.

Now in its tenth year of operation, Symphony of Soul is proud to present “Sugar & Spice”, its first-ever compilation CD. 100% of proceeds from the sale of the CD benefit Symphony of Soul.

Awesome Austin
The collection of songs from local Austin artists is a great cross section of music. From Classic type to Jazz to Austin sound to Spanish rock. What is even more awesome is that these artists have given their time and talents in big and small ways from those that need love and encouragement the most.

Love it!
I loved this CD! It features music from my hometown (ATX!) and reminds me of the background I'm so proud of when I'm away at school. This album truly captured the essence of Austin with its diverse set of artists-- ranging from Sarah Hickman to Del Castillo. Not only that, but it just made me de-stress and relax from my hectic life. Definitely soothes the soul through the wonderful lyrics and dancing that you will almost undoubtedly end up doing!
