The Re-Mastering Process

Digitizing each and every audio tape, both sides-making sure to get the best copy possible. Trying out 3 different tape machines. Trying two different video digitizers-getting footage from reel to reel. Adjusting the pickups in the Marten guitar. Photographing each photo. Going through the digital files and figuring out which versions to share. Share them as they are and go from there. Singing over the tracks…as we go…

The Scripture that Changed the World

We were recently told that before Billy came to know the Lord his whole complexion looked different. That there was just one scripture verse that changed his life forever and he never looked back. Can anyone take a guess at what scripture that it might be? Perhaps someone in the Archers or going back to Palmdale would have a good guess…

Father’s and Daughters and Families of Music

As you know I love to sing and write songs.

Our one year old daughter Bella comes from a long line of musically gifted family that includes Billy Masters. Currently Bella plays the piano, drum, accordian, kazoo, and mouth pipe.

My hus-band, and Bella‚Äôs father, Stephen has an extensive background in family of music as well.  His maternal grandfather was a violin player as well as a self taught trombone and piano player. And of course his mother, Sally, has been a musician her whole life and plays piano and organ. Also his aunt Ellen is an accomplished flautist. 

My Dad, Frank W. Spees, who adopted me at 9 months old, is a songwriter, composer, as well as a potter! He wrote a beautiful song for my birthday that I sang back for him for his birthday. 

Also I just wanted to let you know that my Mom, Judy, plays a beautiful clarinet and sight reads music.  My Sister, Kristen plays the Jazz Saxophone. My brother Justin can play the flute and the drum.

What instruments do you play? How does music inspire healing in your life?
