This has been a wonderful journey for me. I feel truly blessed to have come to this point of completion with this project. My hope for this record is that when you listen to these songs, you are moved in some way by the music and the stories within.

 I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with the musicians involved in making my songs and this record come to life. Thank you all for sharing your gift of music. I never could have accomplished this without the talents of: Sean Harkness (Acoustic, Electric Guitars, Back Vox & Instrumental Arrangements), Valerie Ghent (1969 Rhodes, Keyboard and Back Vox), Skip Ward (Electric and Upright bass), Mauro Refosco (Percussion), Darro “Sparkie” Sandler (Drums), Brigit Moynihan (Back Vox), and Liza Grossman (Violin)

Special thanks to the following: Ron Allaire (Ronzie) : Your attention to detail is stellar. I appreciate all your time and energy you put in to my music. You have an ear like no other (Mixing and Recording Engineer).

Chris Muth (Mastering Engineer), Peter Freed (Photographer) and Diana La Guardia (Art Designer for Album) and Will Day for creating a one of a kind piece of art entitled "Innocence", in which I used on my back album cover.

A special thanks to Sean Harkness: For helping me bring my vision to fruition. This project would not have been possible without your professional advice, patience and friendship. 

Be well!

Quotes:

"Sweet Days" harkens back to the time when music was played by people together, and you could feel it. I can "hear" the heart in the songs, the singing, and the playing. The record is fun to listen to, and it also has depth".

Glenn Berger, LSCW PhD


" I've got the record on in the shop and it just sounds fantastic. What a beautiful story".

Chris Muth, Mastering Engineer, Taloowa Mastering


"Partnered with a hot singer/songwriter this past month. She commissioned a painting and put it on the back cover on her latest music album.  She is like the next  Cheryl Crow..  It just came out this week.  I love it.."
