Magical Moment 619, "Today is the Day!!!"


A common goal for any musician/singer/songwriter, is to record an album of their very own. I didn't realize how daunting of a task this would be when I set out to do just that 2 years ago. The songs were already written...how hard could it be to find a studio, producer, audio engineer, musicians, graphic designers, photographers, public relations specialist, cd duplication and distributors? Turns out, very. Yes, it quite a learning experience with steep curve. But I'm proud to say, that it's officially complete and ready for sale!

The album, "Silk in the Sky" is a 10 track album, 9 of which are originals. They are a collection of my personal favorite songs. I would categorize the genre as adult contemporary. It's very easy to listen to, with a touch of jazz, blues, and folk thrown in...and one Jewish lullaby for good measure. 

Here are the ways you can purchase the album:

1. Digital download of the entire album is available on amazon for only $6.99!
2. Digital download is also available on iTunes for $9.90.

If you prefer a hard copy and the use of paypal, 

3. You can visit ebay:
4. It will be on cdbaby.com  by April 12th
5. Or you can always e-mail me and I'll be happy to slip a copy in the mail for you. :)

You can listen to track samples at the above sites, if you like what you hear, I would be so grateful for your support in purchasing the album! Recommend it to your family and friends as well! There's my big plug. :)


A special thanks to Modern Vintage Recordings, especially to Jason Cummings, a remarkably talented engineer/producer who worked with me so patiently every step of the way and brought his ideas and expertise to the project in ways I could never have imagined!

My parents deserve so much thanks. They've completely supported every hair brained idea I've ever got into my head and do anything possible to help me reach my goals. My 2 beautiful grandmas, Mary and Shirley, are the most encouraging grandmas a person could ask for and I'm so happy to have them as a part of my life and as such an inspiration to me. And my sisters, Erica and Regina, and my best friend Deb, have always been my biggest cheering section! Of course, I would likely never be here at all if it weren't for Eddie. I may have given up long ago if not for his patient encouragement, and his help in figuring all this crazy stuff out with me! He's made my dreams as important as his very own, and for that I'll be forever grateful. 

I'm so full of thankfulness right now and can't wait to see what the future brings, and what new goals I'll set! Thanks to all the readers who have faithfully read about this long journey as I've blogged about it. The first post about recording an album was back on July 15, 2010! (Optimistic Gamble). I don't know what I would do without you!

Yay! Congrats to you, my friend.

As proud owner of my very own copy of this CD, so kindly delivered to me by the artist herself (top that Amazon!), I can vouch that it's a beautiful collection of music created and presented by the lovely Elizabeth.

May the next "crazy stuff" that you and your sweet Eddie have to figure out is how to keep up with countless sales.
