Product Notes

I thought you might enjoy getting to know me a little and a little bit about each of the songs on the EP. It wasn't until I turned 50 this past year, that I started singing again. I hadn't sang a special in church in 20 years. But last summer, when I needed peace and comfort in my own life (due to a personal loss), I started writing songs. I've been told that the lyrics are comforting, and those that hear the album say, 'I play it over and over, I can't get enough of it.' Others have stated that my style is a genre of it's own: a whole lot of Folk, some Christian, a little Celtic, Country, and Bluegrass mixed in. I've been asked, 'Why this album cover'? My husband took this picture of me on the breeze-way of our home. That stucco work you see is his handiwork. There were about a 1000 pictures taken all together for this EP. We tried very hard to capture not only something spiritual, but the gentleness of the songs. This is the one picture that really stood out. It was different from all the rest. The woman on the front cover looks beautiful, mysterious, a little forlorn, and from an era long ago... The first song on the album is titled, 'The Picture on the Wall.' I wrote this song after seeing the sun light from an upper window, slowing coming down the wall above the staircase in our home. It illuminated the face of Jesus. What a beautiful song with unbelievable lyrics, melody, and music. One part of the song says, 'There's a thousand words that a picture can say, hanging on my old wall, about a stone's throw away.' If you know the story about Jesus on the Mt. Of Olives before he was crucified, then you will enjoy this song taken right from the scriptures. I sing the song in C minor, so it really sounds haunting. I've been told by a friend that it is his 'favorite song' of all times. What a compliment coming from another singer songwriter. The second song on the album I wrote after coming home from buying groceries one Saturday morning. It had been a hot summer, no rain in weeks and it was very dry. I could see the storm clouds in the distance and the 'shadowing sunshine' as the sun moved in and out from behind the clouds. While putting away the groceries, just outside my kitchen window, I saw a hummingbird came up to the feeder on my back porch. I was so touched by it's fearlessness in the mist of a brewing storm, that I felt impressed to write a song about her. The title came from the school children at Bergman school where I worked at the time. They kept referring to the song as the 'Hummingbird Song.' The name just kind of stuck. The third song was written one morning while I was praying on my roof garden. All of a sudden the sun in the sky looked like someone had placed a button on top of it. Amazed at what I was seeing, I called my parents who lived a few miles away, but they couldn't see the sun from where they were because of the trees and clouds. I called my husband who was working in Branson Missouri 40 miles away. No, it was cloudy there too and he couldn't see the sun either. What I saw that day, I do not know, but I felt a new song coming on. So I went outside to the garage, dusted off the cobwebs from my old tambourine, and proceeded to write, sing, and dance throughout my house 'Holy! Holy!' The second verse of the songs says, 'An eclipse so bright, what a beautiful sight, I worshiped Him with all of my might.' And I did too. What an upbeat worship song. The voices are on chorus sound like Celtic women, but it is my voice stacked three times. Beautiful! The fourth song on the album is titled, 'When I was Seven.' True story. I did write a poem when I was in the second grade about a dream I had about heaven. I remember the reaction of my teacher as she couldn't believe that I wrote the poem. I remember her showing it to the other teachers as she was so impressed. Many years later, one morning late last summer, while sitting on my upstair's balcony, I recalled that experience. Below me was a swing that my husband had put up years ago. Memories flooded my mind 'it gently sways in the warm mid summer breeze, and it reminds me of a childhood memory, when I was seven, I dreamt of Heaven....' What a cool melody that song is. Children love the song and I've watched them dance to it. Many adults have told me that it is their favorite song too. It has a Folk and Celtic sound with some Christian story telling lyrics. The fifth song, well, I continue to cry more tears over that song than any song I have written. Very personal. Very beautiful. Very touching. Raw. It too has become many people's favorite song. My niece texted me the other day said, 'Aunt Angie, I cry every time I listen to 'Beautiful Child.' I can't even begin to tell the story behind this song. One part of the songs says, 'Tears fall like rain, on my pillow stained.' Enough said. 'Ozark Mountain Breeze' is the sixth song on the album. It is many country folk's favorite song. This song will soon be on the lips of everyone that has felt the Ozark Mountain breeze. That I have no doubt. Even people living in the city that love country music, will relate to this song. It truly tells a story of going off into the world, looking for riches but returning home to creeks, wildlife, and a family that believes in God. What a beautiful country song with Christian lyrics and a hint of Bluegrass music. The chorus says, 'This country girls home, I'm home, I'm running home. Where the trees grow tall, in North Arkansas, it's the place I wanna be, feel the Ozark Mountain breeze.' In closing, you will find me in the small rural town of Bergman Arkansas. About 40 miles away is Branson Missouri, 'The Live Music Capital of the World.' I have to give a special thanks to Mitch Keirsy, the music producer of Keirsy Music Productions located in Branson. Mitch performed all the instrumentals on this EP and he did an excellent job. Through his talent and expertise of music, he was able to capture the essence of my songs. Enjoy ya'll, I know you will! Keep listening! Angela Grace Pure Words Pure Music.
