(DeLaCruz Enterprises, 2009):
Capital Region singer-songwriter Valerie DeLaCruz is probably best known for “My Girlfriends Quilt,” a song that she wrote which later formed the basis of an hour-long public television special of the same name. That was five years ago.
She readily admits that music had taken a back seat in her life during those ensuing years.
“It was a joy, however, indulging myself to go back to Nashville and record this Christmas album with my long time producer Mark Oliverius,” she admits. “I think I miss studio singing most of all – the process, the collaboration, the nuance that can be captured in the intimacy of the sound booth.”
