About Closer Than Near
“This project started when I was driving home from a meditation group in Eugene OR. It struck me like a lightning bolt that I was supposed to record a CD that I was to use my own voice to sing my original songs. GULP! It was clearly indicated that I was to record the album in Austin with my fabulously talented friend, Jimmy George.
I didn’t have hardly two cents to my name, much less the cash to make a CD, but the message was so strong, I knew I had to follow it. GULP! I called Jimmy and he was excited about the project. He had wanted to make my record for a long time. He offered to do it for a fraction of what he’s worth and inquired if I had the money before he booked up that much of his time on his busy calendar. I said no, but I knew it would come and asked him to trust me. I took some deep breaths and booked my ticket right then and there. DOUBLE GULP!!! Not long after, I got an idea to send an e-mail to all my friends telling them I was finally recording some of my songs and asked if anyone wanted to sponsor one. ”
Because of the following list of people who believed in my dream, this CD was made possible:
Charles Bamforth, Daniel Belioca, Mary Faloon, Laura Disterhof, Bethlyn Gerard, Diana and Jim George, Jimmy George, Rich Glauber, Andy Gray, Timothy Harrow, Debra, Paul and Kirsten Keppo, Eric Kloor, Deb and Paul McGuire, Jeff Parrett, Val and Veronica Rasmussen, Roman Rivas and Tanya Schumsky, Cathy and Alice Stevens, Jesse Tannehill
