Path I Take
Coming from a family that entertained ourselves with singing around the piano, I could never NOT sing! I learned to sing harmony from my dad and as I got older and my voice got lower, that's all I ever thought I could sing. But when I was about twenty years old, our pastor heard a voice that, according to him, made the hair on his neck stand up and from then on, I was deemed a solo singer. Then a new career was added as I started writing songs, sometimes in the middle of the night. With the help of my niece. Lori Porter, who is a phenomenal natural musician, we put together this album of mostly original songs with a few old standbys thrown in for good measure. I have always been adamant about not doing an album where-in all the songs sounded the same. I think we have achieved our goal of variety in this body of work. As my son asked me, 'Is this Rock and Roll Sunday or Greatest Funeral Hits?', I think it's a little of both with some bluesy gospel and some praise added to the mix. I do hope you enjoy it and it blesses you.
