ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
9/11-911

September 11th, 2001 changed the world forever. Each song expresses emotions felt at the time it was written. We feel most of America & much of the world shared or experienced these same thoughts. But with each day that passes, we truly understand, the real impact 911 had on this country.

Honor the fallen! Support the living!

IT MUST NEVER BE FORGOTTEN! In many cases, the ultimate price was paid. In other cases, families were left behind with but a memory of those they loved. So many more lives have been lost since 911. With each rising sun, all we can do is pray. For we know not what the future holds - ONLY who holds the future. May God bless America!

Tlee Brooks did the vocals, production and music. You'll probably hear the deep sense of emotion in each song. "This was a very hard project for us to complete. It was not just another lyric and music. This was very REAL as each day unfolded. We shared what we felt deeply in our our hearts. We're glad we were able to capture the everchanging feelings and actual historical events of one of America's greatest tragedies. We are just sorry it took place". Patriotic songs shone through the ashes.

Most of these profound lyrics were written by Iris Harden from a hospital bed, beginning that very day. She shared the initial shock in "Terror Of New York". This song tells what she heard and saw;The cries-the screams-fiery flames- gaping holes- a scene none of us will ever escape for as long as we live. It has spoken text,singing, and an actual clip of first 911 speech. "To fully express what we felt that day, it needed everything you hear".

Since this CD release we suffered a devastating toxic injury. Prayers & support of our music is deeply appreciated. God bless America. With all we've been through it means so much to know our music has touched someone's heart...


Time created a flood of emotions; Anger - Tears - Strength-Pride. Jerry Walker sent a powerful message in "Messin' With the USA". We also wrote a few tribute songs. Close to our hearts is "LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND" which honors Special Forces killed in Afghanistan. They truly upheld the Warrior's code as they returned to the battlefield, in the line of fire, to rescue the wounded. We were honored to hand deliver a copy to the Mother of the late Bradley Crose, a real HERO! His family should be very proud.

"American Businessman" shares the true story of Howard Lutnick, who lost over 700 employees and a brother. He showed great strength, not only as a solid businessman, but as a man of great compassion. Mr. Lutnick reached out to many familes, at a time when his own world had crumbled to the ground.

"American Pride" is a song for our troops. They need our support, encouragement and to know we honor each of them with American Pride. The lyrics are listed below. Please share it with someone who needs a positive message. No matter how we feel about the world situation - Support Our Troops! We wrote these songs for our troops, families and for America. We love you all.

"Mourning the Morning" truly mourns that horrible morning when America cried and the innocent died. Those blue skies and sunshine all turned to rain..We shall never forget the pain or images of that dreadful day.

"Osama Bin Laden" is a song of initial anger..stating that he will die.. for our families still cry..He made people think they'd reap their reward.. for doing such evil..that a heavenly chord.. would bring them sweet music from angels above..but God does not murder.. for God is of LOVE. How could he kill innocent victims in the name of ANY God? {Still free -2007 - but in the end he WILL pay!]

"The Front Line" was written to President George Bush in the very beginning months after 911. It's also written Waylon style & honors the memory of a great country artist and the state of Texas. Iris recalls speaking with Waylon during a visit to Texas just prior to 911.

Iris Harden, relates to the 911 workers affected by toxins in the air. She took the brunt of toxic injury causing burns, multiple organ damage, immune dysfunction/chronic pain. With trichothecene poisoning (commonly called Yellow Rain by our military, which killed 6000 in Laos)-- her survival is a miracle. She asks you to pray for the workers of 911 who suffer like injuries, as well as those with Gulf War Illness....

Music is still her passion. Iris keeps a positive attitude, lets the sunshine overcome the rain, by keeping her focus on her songwriting, helping others who suffer, and God's love. Iris filed a personal injury claim with Grange Mutual Insurance in Jan. 2006 - even contacted their CEO, Phil Urban; Grange pretty much left them to die. Only the grace of God and their music has kept hope alive.

Still they made a pledge to help others with 911 album sales. Thus, they will still donate the pledged amount to the charities below: 911 music downloads (mp3s) are available.

The Armed Forces Veterans Homes Foundation provides long term,quality health care to America's infirm and elderly Veterans. Those who defended our freedom need us now!
There are close to 150 "Homes of the Brave" across the
USA. I've talked to the directors and visited the local Home. They really give our Vets the dignity the deserve.

The Salvation Army is the largest army in the world.They march forward in God's name, meeting human needs to all, without discrimination. To give HELP is to give HOPE!

Iris & Tlee wish to donate $1.00 to EACH of the above worthy Charities for EACH 911 CD sold. Our hope is to help
with many donations, but also to have our 911 songs and patriotic music really mean something to America.

Please Honor the Fallen and Support The Living as you play our 911 tribute CD. Though the songs bring back haunting memories, America's spirit lives on. Don't just play the CD on Sept. 11th, rather play it in their honor ..as often as you can. There WAS and STILL ARE many HEROES of 911. Our songs for 911 families & our soldiers were written with love. These patriotic songs share our American pride.

We appreciate all support and prayers as we try to move forward & even help other victims of toxic mold. This 911 CD & each song came from a saddened place in our hearts... We'd love to hear from you. The lyrics to American Pride are listed below. God bless you all. Share our story and our backgrounds. Live each day with American Pride. Thanks!

"AMERICAN PRIDE"

It's true our wing is broken
But the eagle proudly flies
Many prayers so humbly spoken
For the hurt and those who died
No one will ever count the rivers
As a nation we have cried
Yet you'll never steal the spirit
Of "American Pride"

We're proud and we are loyal
Home of the brave and ever true
Old Glory's still a'waving
Stars and stripes, red white and blue
We are walking hand in hand
And we're marching side by side
So you'll never steal the spirit
Of "American Pride"

New York, "The Empire" crumbled
But "Ever Upward", Love conquers hate
"Virtue, Liberty and Independence"
Pennsylvania, Our "Keystone State"
"Thus Ever To Tyrants", Virginia says
"You've Sealed Your Fate"

For our motto still holds true
"IN GOD WE TRUST"
The world has heard our warning
"Don't Tread On Us"
For we'll only grow stronger
And it surely is a must
We'll draw closer together
Be "United as One'
Rise up and shine
As the early morning sun
We shall not be defeated
Or our freedom be denied
You'll never steal the spirit
Of "American Pride"
