Conversation: "the act or an instance of talking together." The meeting of minds, one would say. Well, throughout this CD, I've attempted to highlight various forms of conversation, vocally as well as musically.
I've been so very blessed and honored, to work with such talented artists in realizing this endeavor. Consuela Ivy, Vanessa Holmes, John Harris, New Beginnings Ignited Praise, and Kevin Morrissette Jr., have wonderfully expressed themselves vocally, on the original compositions presented them by Rubynn English and me.
I chose Rubynn to be featured in this project (vocally and on his guitar), as a result of the many conversations (both musically and verbally) he and I have had over the forty some odd years of friendship we have enjoyed.
Please, strap on your listening ears, and allow us to converse with you, through the sometimes whimsical, sometimes sad, yet, all times direct expressions of thought, throughout the selections on this CD. Hopefully, we'll leave you with something to "converse" about.
And as usual, thanks for your ears.

We composers/artists expose our inner most feelings and emotions with every release, walking on faith that we can simply share an experience of pleasure and entertainment. We hold this faith dearly, for, providing the listener a mere pleasant moment of escape, is truly our endeavor. I sincerely hope this collection of music renders that good feeling. Thank you for the opportunity. All praise to God.
