    I will admit, before this promotion, I had never heard of this artist. I was so happy to be sent a copy of this album for review because I love discovering new and talented artists, and if they are inspirational, so much the better! As I placed the CD in my computer to listen to it, I immediately fell in […]

    I watched Cedar Cove from its inception on the Hallmark Channel, and most of the cast knew me as a loyal viewer and supporter. But there was something about one of the actresses on the show that always intrigued me–Hayley Sales. Her character popped up almost out of the blue one day, and then she left, oh so suddenly–far too […]

    I adore Hallmark movies, and one of the best things about these sweet, romantic films is their expert use of music. Sometimes we hear established favorites from contemporary artists, which always puts me in the mood for singing along (yes, I admit, I’ve done that. Come on now, haven’t you??) On the other hand, Hallmark also uses promising musicians like […]

Many get the chance to play as young children in the form of vocal or piano lessons their parents made them go to, but not all people had that luxury.

    A LEGEND is defined as “an extremely famous or celebrated person, especially in a particular field,” and in the case of world-renowned musician David Sancious, that moniker expressly suits him. With his extensive career and vast array of accomplishments, very few have enjoyed the unprecedented success that this man has achieved. And yet even in his busy schedule and with another […]

    In this day and age of educational cutbacks where public schools are slashing budgets at an alarming rate, the first program that often receives the proverbial ax is the fine arts program. As a former music teacher myself, I can attest to the fact that music and performing arts are often seen as superfluous.  Since there are no standardized tests […]

    This past summer, I was pleased, awed, and inspired to interview the ponderously talented and incredibly astute Nicole Oliver, and when I noticed that Nicole was appearing in a Lifetime movie based on the life of Britney Spears, I hoped for the opportunity to interview her yet again. Just last week, she and I chatted in depth about her role of Lynne Spears […]
