It Takes A LOT of people to make great music happen!

The Musicians:
Helping me and my guitar was my friend Ken Lewis on percussion. We cut tracks at both Blair's studio and Ken's. It was musical candy to see all of Ken's percussion instruments from around the world. What an ear this guy has. He had us stomping feet, subdividing claps like the Gipsy Kings... so much fun! For my musician listeners, I know you will appreciate his work on this project. Ken is also a studio in great demand here in Nashville.

Matt Pierson, bass. My friend Matt, besides being a very versatile musician, had his son Harrison in the preschool where I was director. He saw firsthand the beauty of teaching the catechism, especially through song, and offered to support this project any way he could. What fun to finally get to work together in the studio. Some of the tracks on the cds have multiple bass tracks. The layering of his music was so gorgeous I could hardly stand it!

The Engineer:
Brett Teagarden: Engineer, Mixing and Mastering. I have been working with Brett for years, first in simple cd duplication. Then when we finally got to record this project for reals, Brett lent his ear to mixing and mastering the songs on the cd.

The Vocalists:
Me and my kids! Isidora Beach (14), JP Batarseh (12), Lina Beach (9) and Justice Marie Batarseh (7), and JoJo Batarseh (5).

It is a joy to sing these songs with my kids knowing that they really KNOW them. The truths of the catechism are in their heart, and I can't imagine a better gift than to join our voices together and invite countless families to sing along.

Here's a fun picture from back in the day!
