It was Produced , Engineered and Mixed by Anthony Esposito( Lynch Mob/ Jake E Lee Red Dragon Cartel) and He also played on the album too! and did a wonderful job! It was mastered By Roger Lian.
The songs on the Album were mostly written by Cheri and Anthony Esposito. She did do a couple cover songs. Move Over (Janis Joplin) and Stand By You ( The Pretenders)And Did a Great Job on Them! . She Sang About Her Mothers Dementia and her Oldest Sons Addiction. Also about her ” Crazy Ass Life” The Album Is Mostly Modern Rock With a Touch Of Classic Rock Thrown In. I Really Enjoyed It. Some Of My Favorite Songs Off The Album are : “Crazy Ass Life” Which Totally Rocks. ” Fire In The Sky” also a Rocker. ” Love Never Dies” and Here With You Again” are Beautiful.
