More About the “Let The Change Begin” CD
Some people were accidentally left out of the printed CD credits. Sorry!
So here we thank:
Deanna Walker who played keyboards on “Asking for Grace,” which she also co-wrote, and
John Lawry for Mastering the CD to make the project sound even better.
Amy Bishop for singing back up on “You Decide“.
Jana’s cousin, Judy Hall.
Denise Hoolhorst, beloved friend and previous Marketing Director for Keynote Concerts.
Matt Wilder is more than a producer. He also sang on most of the songs and played parts on every instrument except the cello. He’s also funny – sometimes by accident. Here is a list of my favorite “Matt-isms”.
My favorite studio days are the days when Scat Springs is singing. Scat did 90% of the BGV’s (background vocals) on this CD. Scat is the dad of Kandace, Kimber and Kenya. He is an actor, a speaker, and you’ve heard him singing on national commercials for Pepsi, Coke & General Motors.
Jerry Kimbrough produced or co-produced nearly all of my previous CDs. He is one of Nashville’s top studio guitarists. Jerry & his wife Diane adopted two little girls from Russia in 1998. (That’s why he’s tired.) Please visit www.proguitartracks.com.
Nioshi Jackson was on call during the early sessions because his son, Dorian, was due any minute. The photo on the left will someday show him what his dad was up to during the lunch break on the day Dorian was expected. Please visit www.nioshi.com.
Julius Fisher, thank you for providing the “gospel-Grammy-winning” chord progression for the bridge of “I Am One.” Julius plays with Bobby Jones and New Life and has a band called Higher Ground.
Richard Felton won my heart by showing up early every day to generously write out the chord charts for everyone. A Mississippi native, Richard studied Music Education at Alcorn State University, and he plays bass in a band called MFG. Please visit www.mfgmusic.com.
These photos document the first time a set of drumsticks was ever broken on a Jana Stanfield CD.
- “Don’t feel bad Jana, I once worked with a singer who was just like you, only worse.”
- “That was really good, Scat, except for your vocals.”
Jana: “I won’t be here tomorrow because I’m getting the photos done for the CD cover.”
Matt: “What look are you going for?”
Jana: “I’m just hoping they can make me look like myself, only gorgeous.”
Matt: “Will that cost a lot?”
