ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songs for Sophie: A Collings Collective is a special recording project whereby some of the most talented musicians in acoustic music have volunteered their time and talent to help a very special girl, Sophie McCreary, and her family. Sophie is currently ten years old and has early onset bipolar disorder. [For more information about Sophie, please visit: http://www.anm.com/sophie/.] Sophieís dad, Steve McCreary, is the general manager of Collings Guitars, Inc. of Austin, Texas.

All of the musicians who have contributed to this project own and play Collings instruments and used those instrumentsóguitars and mandolinsóon this recording. Each musician eagerly contributed to this project (without pay), not only because it was to benefit a good cause, but because of the love they have for their Collings instruments and the company that makes them. Collings guitars and mandolins are regarded as some of the highest quality instruments being built today. But a high quality product is not the only thing that keeps these artists loyal to Collings. Loyalty is built upon personal relationships and a big part of that loyalty to Collings is due to the relationship these artists have with Steve McCreary. Steve is one of the friendliest, easy to get along with, and professional individuals in the music industry and thus has earned the respect and high regard of everyone who has had the pleasure of working with him. When I contacted each of these fine musicians and asked if they would contribute to this project they did so without hesitation. ìIíll do anything to help Steve,î was the typical response.

When you gather together some of the worldís best musicians, playing some of the worldís finest acoustic instruments, and ask them to play from their heart to help a man who they all respect greatly, and the daughter who he dearly loves, the result is nothing short of musical magic. I hope you will enjoy listening to this recording as much as we enjoyed making it. All proceeds from this recording go directly to help offset the high costs of Sophieís care. I thank you for helping that effort by purchasing this CD. If you feel inspired to lend more help to Sophie, please visit the above mentioned website and navigate to the ìWhat To Doî page.
