Remembering To Remember: Hymns for the Soul
is a soulful celebration and presentation of traditional hymns, presented simply with piano and voice, the way Valerie heard it growing up. It features songs that her grandmother, mother, and aunts hummed as part of their very personal expression of faith. Songs like: It is Well With My Soul, Great is Thy Faithfulness, and In the Garden. It is truly beautiful and powerful.

Valerie Joi's song delivery is as fluid and focused as her life. She is a minister extraordinaire and her message of unconditional love and acceptance is clear, strong and uncompromising. Listening to her sing, play or direct is an artistic and healing journey in itself. Valerie Joi was featured as one of the director's top 10 picks at the 2005 Monterey Jazz Festival. As a director, she directed a choral ensemble of the 2005 San Jose Jazz Festival Orchestra featuring Jeri Allen on piano. Currently, she conducts three gospel choirs in the Santa Cruz area - the Inner Light Choir, Inner Light's Singing Circle, and the UCSC Gospel choir - each with 60 to 100 voices. As a New Thought Practitioner with an MBA from Rice University, she is grounded in the practical and the divine.

A truly versatile pianist, Tammy Hall's own compositions, arrangements and improvisational style are always crowd pleasers. Tammy's impressive accompanist skills make her a top choice for many well-known singers. And Tammy is equally gifted in Jazz, Classical, Gospel, Salsa and Funk. Her major influences include Tania Maria, Beethoven, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Mary Lou Williams, Joe Sample and Thelonious Monk. Tammy brings virtuosity to the piano that is never ostentatious, and her approach to the music is always genuine and fresh.
