NOTHING REMAINS THE SAME voted ALBUM OF THE YEAR, 2010 Motif Music Awards!
"In this wonderful, yet sometimes “peculiar” life I live, the one thing I know for certain is that everything changes, nothing remains the same. I finally get it. The toughest lesson is excepting the change, learning from the change, then taking it all and moving ahead. I love the words of the popular poem A Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime, author unknown. I am grateful for all the people who have come in and out of my life for a reason, a season or a lifetime; in some way, each adding something of value to my world. I know every change is for a reason. Hard to believe 4 years have passed since I released my 1st cd, Find a Dream…catch it if you dare. Today I look back in wonder as I look ahead with anticipation, fully aware, Nothing Remain the Same." Joanne Lurgio
Through luck and friendship I had a wonderful opportunity to record some of my songs in Nashville, TN. It started out as a demo project, but the more I listened to my recordings, the more I was loving what was happening to my songs and realized I wanted them for myself not simply demowork. Called my friend Mike Dunbar who was engineering & producing the demo projects and asked to change direction and start working on a full lenght CD. Without hesitation, Mike gathered up some of the finest Nashville musicians and we set out to finish the album - Joanne Lurgio, Nothing Remains the Same.
"Joanne Lurgio, singer/songwriter, sings about everyday living. A lively acoustic guitar style, along with powerful, emotion packed vocals will draw you in to the heart of her songs. "
Due to the nature of the initial project goal, you will find this album is an eclectic mix of sounds; Blues, Folk, Bluegrass, Country Gospel & Acoustic Rock sounds.
Making all the music is:
Joanne Lurgio – acoustic guitar & vocals
Mike Baker – guitar
Mike Dunbar – bass, mandolin & guitar
John Heinrich – steel guitar, tenor saxophones & soprano, dobro
Willie Rainsford – keyboard
Fred Satterfield - drums
Recorded at StringHouse Studio, Hendersonville TN and Mike Dunbar Productions, Nashville TN
Produced by Mike Dunbar, Mike Dunbar Productions, Nashville TN
Engineered by Mike Dunbar & Rick Otts
But I must admit there is one thing that hasn't change ... my motto.. 'If, even for a moment, I can make you laugh, cry, think, remember or just forget the troubles of your day, then I have succeeded." It still rings true. I hope you are somehow touched by my words and music.
All the Best
