This album is dedicated to my mother, Joyce Guion Shipley, who passed away while I was writing and recording it. She was a very talented poet, supported me unconditionally, and fervently believed in me when I was unsure of myself.
This album would not have been possible without the loving support and reassurance of my husband, Olek, who encouraged me to take on music full-time. Thanks to my very proud parents, John and Mary Ellen, and friends and family who have been fiercely supportive. Thanks to SusieCool, Vick, and Stuart for increasing my confidence on stage by putting me through “Crappy Bar Boot Camp” and also for encouraging me in my solo projects.
