"Making this album has been an unforgettable ride. When i jumped in the car i had know idea where i was heading but now that I'm here i am so grateful for the experiences i was given. When i walked onto the stage at the Black Sheep inn i was surprised to see someone i surely looked up to... Mr. Champagne James Robertson. He started a fire in me and within the month i drove myself up to Toronto and we wrote 10 songs in 2 Days. I had never experienced this kind of collaboration before but James turned my songs into what they were meant to be and i could never thank him enough for doing that ! I must say this whole project would not be possible without my producer Mr.Neal Sundet he has believed in me since he met me and is the one who connected me with producer Jack Letourneau. Without these two i wouldn't have such amazing musicians on the album & Boy do my producers have a lot of character !!!! Clyde Stubblefield gave me chills as the only words that came out of his mouth were guiding, kind and wise. I will never forget the moment after he stood up off the drums came up to me gave me a hug and said "darlin your the princess of soul" tears came to my eyes. Thank you Clyde for giving me and this project nothing but love. Allen Kirk was absolutely amazing to work with.. haha wont forget he sent us to the only late night open rib joint in town! John Lindberg my bass player forgive me John but i love Dr.John and your style will always remind me of him which is friken kick ass ! All you had to offer me was great rhythm, vibes and positive attitude so thank you John . Mae Koen ... girl when you walked into the studio my love grew into respect . I love the way you work . Shay Jones you killed it ...haha walking in with your plaid boots and matching vest dam you got style.. you worked so hard on this album thank you. Jimmy Voegeli first of all thank you for giving me like 5 hugs i knew by the look in your eyes you had the perfect amount of drive for the music we were writing ! Seeing you work was a treat so much passion came through those finger tips .. like magic. Although i did not get to see Billy Branch work in the studio i did get to see him perform in The Buddy Guy Club in Chicago after are last day of recording and meeting him afterwards was a great pleasure i cant wait to hear what he brings to the album ! The most thanks i have to give is to my Parents they are my biggest fans and have supported me since the beginning of my career. Thanks to all my friends and family who have been supporting my career and coming to all my shows there are so many of you to thank, i hope my songs can show how much i appreciate your love and support. I believe i will be making music for the rest of my life. My career would not be possible without my best friend in the whole wide world OMT ( Olivier Mohan Tache). He stuck by me through the ruff times and has guided my voice to give nothing but love, light, passion and inspiration. Thank you Olivier for sharing your love with me for the past 6 years. Mr. Robert Clarot ...dont you think i forgot about you, you know i never will. Rob thank you for teaching me how to sing for the past 7 years, i promise to share your gifts with the world. HEEEELLOOO boys ... this year has been a dream come true as i have found 3 amazing musicians who have taken my songs to the next level. They are helping me perform my music and I would not have been able to share my songs with the world without them ! They are the water to my body, the cables to my light and the heat to my home. Daniel Grewal, Michael Grewal and Matt Aston you boys are truly a dream Thank you for believing and helping me accomplish mine." - Bella Cat
