I thoroughly enjoyed this new experience of writing words and music to express different emotions – love, humour, longing, regret – I believe we can all, to some extent, relate to these feelings.

A special thank you goes out to my husband, Valmar Kurol, for his support in helping me to realize my dream of someday making a record, and for writing such beautiful music with me.

Thank you also to Michael Stibor for his wonderful ideas and assistance in putting the music together – not to mention his incredible patience and talent.

I hope you will enjoy listening to these songs as much as I have enjoyed singing them for you.
