All the Lights of Heaven

My spiritual album with a heaven theme.  It is a mix of christian/new age music.  Jesus was a new ager!  I had the pleasure of working with Will Reedy, an incredible acoustic guitarrist, on this album.  Anytime you hear amazing guitar on this album, it's him.  He also did the percussion, the ukelele and the bass.  What did I do?  I wrote the 7 songs, played piano, keyboard and some guitar.  I feel like the title song "All the Lights of Heaven" is the best song I ever wrote.  Most people can't tell that the song changes key twice.  The song was inspired by the book "A Course in Miracles" which brought me comfort after being diagnosed with cancer in 2004.

"Christian Child - By You" was written for a amazing little girl I use to counsel.  She was a foster child and was in several different foster homes yet she was so resilient.  One of the things that made her so resilient was her faith.  She is the person who inspired me to get more in touch with my faith after having moved away from it for several years.

"White Light" is a song inspired by a co-worker who told me that she was going to send me some white light during a medical appt where I was going to find out if I had cancer or not.  The fact that she told me this made me feel so relaxed during the appt that I was able to receive the bad news:  that I did indeed have cancer, a rare and aggressive form nonetheless.  That was in 2004.  I'm proud to say that I am a cancer survivor.  This song won a "honorable mention" award in the 7th Annual Great American Song Contest.
