ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Whoever said it takes a village to raise a child wasn't kidding!

Our daughter Alexi has autism. Although she is only 6 years old, she’s had countless hours of therapies and instruction – however – she still struggles every day with the effects of autism.

We have researched a very new, exciting and promising program called Brain Balance and we have decided to give it a try. We feel strongly that it has an excellent chance to improve the many neurologically-based behaviors that keep Alexi from being able to progress and reach her full potential. In short – Brain Balance balances out the 2 sides of the brain and improves their connections. You can find out much more about the program by going to www.brainbalancecenters.com.

When I told some of my amazingly talented friends that I needed to raise some funds to send Alexi to this program, every single one of them stopped what they were doing and said "What do you need?" What I got was this terrific album, featuring a blend of different styles, voices, instrumentation and genres. What they have in common are terrific songs.

Carrie Weiland leads off the album with the funky "It's the Love Of", followed up by the first new Splat song in 15 years "Apparently". Ted Allen contributes two terrific pop tunes - "Up Against" and "Trapeze" from his Hold the Applause album. DJ Damian spins the beautiful track "Tonight", featuring NY based songstress Leila Airson. My nine year old daughter makes her songwriting, singing and clarinet debut with "Early Bird" and "Shine".

More songs include the brand new track from NJ based The NIC with "I Know What I Like", followed by the spacey "Whispers" by atacontrol. Dayna Kurtz graces the album with the bluegrass infused "Invocation", and we stay on the acoustic trend with Framing Dakota.

Changing gears, Songs for Lexi rocks out with Giftshop, The Dead Agains, Necroboy and Jose Andrade before cruising to a poppy conclusion with Steve Onopa and additional songs from The NIC, Ted Allen and Kyra Cioffi.

This 19 song epic touches many wonderful tones, both musical and emotional, and I am proud to be part of it.

Enjoy!

Pat Cioffi

Hits For Lexi
We received SONGS FOR LEXI and besides being for a great cause I loved it musically! This is a strong
compilation of music from an eclectic bunch of artists covering different genres. The two stand-outs on this disc for me by far is first Kyra Cioffi who is simply amazing. What a voice! How old is she?! I haven't heard as strong a musical debut at such a young age since Michael Jackson and I'm not kidding. And her lyrics were really heartfelt and was the strongest match with the ultimate theme of the album, which is "for Lexi". I loved the honesto of her lyrics and delivery....at times she's not afraid to be sad or filled with emotiuon which is artistically courageous....and when she goes off into a falsetoo look out, she sounds like a bird!

The second really strong stand-out is Ted Allen. I am an unabashed Ted Allen fan! His voice is excellent, lyrics are strong, melodies are good and both "Up Against" and "Trapeze" are among my four favorite songs on the entire CD. He delivers with heartfelt emotion....and again. with "Trapeze" I feel it plays/touches upon Lexi's inner feelings, struggles and sometime difficulties and the song's message is positive in not being afraid to explore new ways as we go up and down with life's vissicitudes.

The best part of this CD to me is that it really matches the intended theme in that this compilation is defintely a GIIIRRRRLLSS Power album. The girls rule (that doesn't mean the boys drool) but many of the stand-out songs/vibes from this disc are from women: Carrie Weiland, Gift Shop and the singer with DJ Damian all add to this feeling of girl power, strength and spunk, which is Alexi!

I will give a final shout-out to Dayna Kurtz who's "Invocation" was also excellent.
