Eric Tagg / Through My Eyes

Here is the message of Eric Tagg himself to you!

Eric Tagg

Dear Everyone

I am so grateful for this chance to reach out into the world with my music, to try to pull on some heartstrings, to make some sense of it all, and maybe just to get some bodies moving. The tunes on this album are not only love songs in the romantic sense, but the lyrics are actually, for the most part, love letters air mailed from the Lord, written to His children, you and me. I hope you get to know Him better.

I want to thank a lot of folks for their part in this effort of Michael's and mine. Marja (my love,I'm never too far) for everything; Barry, Vivien, Brandy, Mom, Rini, Bob and lppy plus Selah, for filth, prayers, and encouragement; John Stanley, Patty Threlkel, Nozomi Tsutsui and Kaori, for the vision and the brass tacks of the project, and for their friendship; Michael McGregor, for all the cooking, programming, insight, and talks in the hot tub; Linda Fiets, for caring, for time and handling all the details; Larry Tagg, for the playing, the brotherhood and the challenges of a lifetime; my heroes, the giants Lee Ritenour, Abraham Laboriel, Don Grusin, and Bill Champlin, for taking the time; for the talents of Joseph Williams, June Stanley, Ron Boustead, (plus refrigerator and ADAT), Michael Thompson, Steve Gay, Kurt Walther, and Phil Sheeran (of the Corbin Canyon Jogging Club), love and thanks; also my other heroes, Ivan Lins and Stevie Wonder, for a lifetime of joy.

Special thanks to Mr.Adachi, Mr. Moribayashi, Mr. Nakada, Akio Tanaka, Seth Riggs, Andrea, Fran Amitin, Judith Bright, Greg and Suzanne Edmonson, Ruth Rivin, Roger Fiets, Emma, Noah, Lewis Nichols, Bill and Mark and RBF, Evan, Rocky, the Wookey, Pee Wee, and the Bonz.

Love and Peace,
