This original collection of music is striking in it's similarity to the Heaven & Earth recordings of so many years earlier; multi-tracked vocals on several tracks make that resemblance all the more evident. The guitar instrumentals are beautifully played. "Music was always a part of my life. As a child, I remember listening to my father sing as he played the piano. I would often dance as he played, or would go to my room and give performances to an imaginary audience. As I grew older there was hardly a night that my sisters and I would not stand around my father at his piano singing with him in harmony. Soon I met Carol, who would become my best and life long friend. It was through Carol that I was introduced to my first guitar. One day she took me to visit a new friend, Suzy, who had just moved into the neighborhood. We spent many lazy summer days hanging out in Suzy's bedroom where a guitar leaned against the wall. When the conversations turned to boys, something I was not ready for, I would play Suzy's guitar. I fell in love with it and became much more interested in it than anything else that was happening. I was amazed at how easy it was to find the sad chords I loved so much on the piano. I asked to borrow Suzy's guitar, which she willingly gave up. In high school, just before graduation, I auditioned for a music workshop in Pennsylvania, run by Fred Waring. I knew my parents couldn't afford it, but something told me to do it anyway. Sure enough I won a scholarship to the school for the whole summer. I said good bye to college and hello to a career in music. Eventually I ended up touring with Hugo Winterhaulter. I sang in his chorus along with my future writing partner. We developed our own style and songs, and were offered a spot in the show.One night a producer happened to be in the audience and he offered us a record contract. We were soon on our own tour as the duo Heaven & Earth. I married and became preoccupied with family life. As it does with most human beings, life challenged me with several years of painful growth, which in turn led me into spiritual inquiry. I came to question the suffering that lay beneath my favorite "sad chords" and wondered why we all suffer in life. Ultimately this led me to explore the very nature of existence. It is this continuing exploration that inspires my music now.
