I want to thank GOD, the Creator of music, for giving me the gift and love of playing the piano and composing music that found its’ way from my heart to the recording studio. The feeling of completing my first CD is a bit overwhelming for me, and yet a special feeling of excitement in hearing my music come to life with the amazing musicians, vocalists, & lyricists that gave my project & each song a personality all its own. I am ever so grateful and thankful for everyone who shared their talent with me on my project. I couldn’t have done it without you!

Special thanks to my Mom who had me learn the piano starting at age 6…Mom always said “practice, practice, practice”…Thanks Mom and I love you more than you’ll ever know! And a special thanks to my Dad, by day a dentist and a gifted musician on the weekends, who influenced and encouraged for me to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. I feel Dad has been guiding and leading me through this musical venture from above ever since GOD had called him back in 1978. I miss you Dad and wish you were here today. I would like to thank my first piano teacher, Bob Lilarose for everything. This musical journey has been great and with what the future holds for me, GOD only knows! I hope you enjoy the music as much as I had fun creating, performing, & producing!

Thank You!
-Joe
