ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vicki Logan's debut CD of original music written to express her dreams and desires of the past, present and future. She uses elements of ambient, bluegrass, classical, and even country to create an atmosphere where one can relax and enjoy just being alive.

"The Hopper Song" and "The Only Way To Say Goodbye" took honorable mentions in international songwriting competitions...Unisong and the Great American Song Contest in 2000 and was nominated for both Instrumental Song of the Year (The Only Way To Say Goodbye) and Instrumental CD of the Year (4th) with Just Plain Folks.

Vicki has since released 3 additional albums, "Finding My Way", "The Ride" and "The Journey To the Places In My Soul" (all available here on CDBaby) and has recently (late 2006) signed an international distribution deal for a Vicki Logan CD to be released in Taiwan/Asia with Chi Lin Music International.

Feel free to visit her website (http://www.vickilogan.com) to hear all the music from all the albums in real audio or streaming MP3s in their full length.

Storybook of Dreams
Vicki Logan first began without formal music lessons, having only a dream of becoming an accomplished musician someday. Her spirited philosophy of believing in yourself, boldly taking the risks, and then dreaming big since anything is possible, has proved to be more than just a mere statement about turning dreams into reality. Vicki is now an outstanding musician taking her own advice for years by creating a heartfelt 4 album portfolio where each album title and theme chronicles the subsequent chapters of her achievements along the way. Chasing Dreams began the first stage for her success and easily set a high watermark for future albums of Finding My Way, The Ride, & The Journey To the Places In My Soul, along with a much anticipated album now in progress. Chasing Dreams reached nomination for Album of the Year in regional music charts, then her subsequent albums were established in NAR / ZMR Top 100 charts and abundant online radio airplay on AOL, Sirius Radio, and XM Satellite, grew to reach around 1000 station worldwide. Writing the original music along with playing piano, strings and flute, Vicki enlists several exceptional musicians with co-producer Randy Gildersleeve on acoustic guitar, banjo & mandolin, Andy LaCasse on bass & electric guitar, and Peter O’Gorman as percussionist. Chasing Dreams is a 10 song classic storybook of concertos, with chapter one titled as The Only Way To Say Goodbye. This first song reveals feelings of hope for those who have lost a loved one by a moving piano piece that marks the first song notation as a memorable one. Respectful by turning each page with a soft finger to key touch, drama crescendos with every step until an emotional full chord melody is expressed, reaching a finale that I can only describe as heartfelt and poetic. The Reprise version offers another impression and moving portrayal of this exquisite melody. An Epoch Of Childhood represents growing to adulthood by a wonderful piano opus enhanced with guitar entries and percussion, reaffirming the positive vibes one feels from her entire album collection. Highway 8 From Minnesota To Michigan is a piano and woodwind ballad that navigates at a mid tempo pace with flute passages describing the event as one of amazement, becoming one of your narrator’s favorites. Beautiful by the emotion rich drama, this song is composed to stay in your mind and I do find myself recalling it often. Title song Chasing Dreams is another beautiful piece to bookmark. Soft wind chimes herald in a thoughtful piano and guitar duo that unite in refined stages until the deepest emotions emerge. The classic artistry in chord phrasing is pleasing not only to the ear, but to the heart and mind, having a wonderful rhythm that conveys only positive sentiments. The Reprise version gives another chance to hear this pleasing song in the same key, yet in a slightly faster tempo defined by synthesizer background that sheds light on this new perspective and classically displays her artistic originality. The Hopper Song is a lively number that showcases the skills of all musicians starting with an upbeat percussion that leaps into expressive piano chords, while mandolin and banjo strum their engaging scripts with confidence. This song reminded me that writing songs to inspire people is what Vicki Logan’s music is all about, bringing a smile to my face as I picture the multitudes of optimistic dreamers out there also becoming a success, in their own personal storybook of dreams.

Introspective, thought provoking music
Pretty good for a debut album. Introspective music, but saved from being too pensive by The Hopper Song, which is lively enough to bring a smile to almost anyone. A Gentle Breeze is, in my humble opinion, the best song on the CD and shows Vickie's potential as an artist.
