ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD is dedicated to friends of Bill W. around the globe and to Anita F. and friends of The Welcome Club in Ft. Pierce, Florida who welcomed me in many years ago and gave me hope when I had none.

Special thanks to Liz Ficalora, Producer of this CD. Her talent and patience is immeasurable and her friendship is one I will treasure for a lifetime. THE PAINT SISTERS made up of Liz and Jill Sissel are the foundation of every song and they listened to my ideas and set off down that path with their musical skills...leading me to new places with my songs that is much more than I could have dreamed.



The song "Safe Ground" is dedicated to the patrons of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida and LGBT people around the globe...may we all find a safe place to land. Love is Love.

To all of the talented musicians that played on this CD in addition to Liz & Jill...John Heinrich...Richard Bell...Ryan Gill...Mark Winchester...Mary Ann Kennedy...thank you from the bottom of my heart....

To my awesome "back up singers" Jennifer Whitcomb-Oliva...Mary Ann Kennedy....Miranda Louise...and Dianne Davidson....Thank You...Thank You...Thank You...You are all so awesome! Hugs...kisses and smiles from one of your biggest fans...every one of ya :-)

To my partner in life...wife...soulmate...Emily Whitcomb you give me the reason every day to wake up and be a better person. I love you sweetheart. xoxo

To the person who still hasn't found a way out of the hopelessness and fear of addiction whatever your drug of choice....you are not alone. There is a solution. All you have to do is take the first step. Ask for help...you can do it. I believe in you. Peace & Love, Val
