Since this CD is entitled YOURS, you probably think it really is YOURS... Well...It's actually really MINE...Meaning... ? MY attempts to: - Figure out how to record digital audio in less than one decade - Disguise the sound of jets flying overhead (while I was figuring out how to record digital audio in less than one decade) - Muffle my kitty purring inside my iso booth (while I was figuring out how to record digital audio in less than one decade) - Experiment, tweak and become very acquainted with the wonderful madness of Protools! - Produce whatever I wanted to, however I wanted to, whenever I wanted to (and I can cry if I want to) - Get up at 4 am with my "morning voice" to try then erase, try then erase again, only to wonder later who I got to record those bass bgv's?? - Write one million different styles of songs then pick my 10 or 11 favorites to all go on the same record - Make you laugh while you read this (or at least chuckle) - Bring you hope - Introduce you to lasting hope - Chronicle my journeys, musings, wonderings, and wanderings And finally... - Make you groove! Thanks to the incredible musicians on this project: Nate Morton - my kindred spirit in NERDNESS...Shawn Tubbs - you are such a creative cat and I love listening to your parts...Michael Thompson - Faaaaaayne's so thankful for your friendship for more than a decade...Liiiiiingle - one miiiiiiiiiiiilllllion memories...Lee Sklar - the ultimate pro with the best stories, "Can you give us a little more 'buzz'?" ?...Paul David - thank you for the beautiful lines, tones and most of all your spiritual encouragement...Javi Rodriguez - thanks for putting up with my paranoia...James Gottry, another huge encourager for me...and Charles Moss - here's to future funkiness! Special Thanks to: Dave -- my husband, best friend, and unconditional love...My wonderful family who continue to be my support system and biggest fans...the Rock Church and Miles McPherson - my spiritual family...the Lakes - my cheerleaders...my faithful friends Dwight, Leah, Cath - who inspire me and still call me friend (though I rarely hang)...and you loyal supporters and prayer partners who keep me encouraged to press on. Above all, the greatest thanks to my Savior Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of my faith (and this project)! My life, my music, and my heart forever will be YOURS. Stef ?
