Winter snow in Utah brings thoughts of "Sleigh Rides"! So I decided to do something a little different and feature a bunch of my "quasi" adopted kids on the lead vocals for this really fun semi-acapella blend of sounds Steven Lerud from Lakeview Recording Studio, and I cooked up! The vocal arrangement which we "sort of followed" was written by Shawn Pearce, and the poppy basic instrumental tracks were loosely based on the Jump5 version. Nyssa Sara Lee (Vanessa Startup), Tori Jensen, and Karsten Hunt sing lead vocals, and yours truly (moi), Shaun and Travis Clark join in with all those crazy harmonies! Enjoy!!!!
While you are at it, check out my brand new song fresh from the Sand Box, "Beautiful Day"! It's a newer more trendy sound for me, and features the amazing Rich Dixon on Guitar, and my long time friend Michael DeVincenzo on Bass. Oh yeah, and that's my boy Marshall kicking in with those "beu beu beautiful days!" I just love playing with music!
And if you haven't already experienced it, check out my compilation album "Faith, Hope, and Love". With over a dozen vocalists and 17 tracks of traditional hymns, Christian imports, LDS favorites, and a few new originals thrown in, there's sure to be something here for everyone!
Tanya Bardull and I (with a little help from the other ladies of "One Clear Voice") kick off the album with a creatively combined version of "New Jerusalem" (made popular by Jessie Clark Funk) and Carly Simon's chart buster "Let the River Run"!
Beautiful Day Single
This fun new upbeat song written by Jamie Grace, shows a different side of Nancy, and gives a lighter, updated sound to her catalog of inspirational music, with the same great faith based messages. Featuring Rich Dixon on Guitar, my long time friend Michael DeVincenzo on bass, and Steven Lerud on percussion and keyboards, and my middle boy Marshall kickin it with me on the "beu beu beautiful days". Enjoy!
Free! Now Through New Years! Yup that's "FREE DOLLARS!" This super fun version of everyone's favorite features Nyssa Sara Lee, Tori Jensen, Karsten Hunt, yours truly (moi), Shaun and Travis Clark, on some crazy semi-acapella harmonies!!! Merry Christmas!

One Who Believes Demo
One Who Believes Demo
"One Who Believes" was written by Sara Lyn Baril, who through a recent beautiful twist of fate I was united with, and although we had never met and live in different countries, were inspired to join our talents and resources. She sent me the sheet music, and I grabbed a group of girlfriends and Sara's relatives who had never seen the music, and we invaded Masa Fukua's studio, and a few short hours later came out with the extremely rough, unmixed, yet very beautiful piece of music, submitted it to Tyler Castleton and Jenny Phillips LDS Music workshop/competition in July, 2011, where Sara and I met in person for the first time and it took 6th place (honorable mention) out of over 150 submissions.
We hope you enjoy it and that perhaps some of you will pick it up for your Young Men/Young Women's, Relief Society, or other church functions spreading this beautiful melody throughout the state. There are plans to put a group of girls together to perform Sara's music at firesides around the valley. Feel free to contact Sara or I if you are interested. Sara's album "Thy Healing Hands" and sheet music for most of her songs can be found at www.saralynbaril.com
The inspirational videos, songs, have been a labor of love for everyone involved, divinely inspired and guided every step of the way. My main goal is, and has always been, to help people find comfort and strength through music during these challenging times we live in, and to know they are loved and are never alone.
My sincere and heartfelt love to each and every one of you.
