Jody Gray is one of those people you meet that are so talented, it's hard to fathom. Not only did he record the entire CD, but he played drums, bass, guitar, and added backing vocals. He is brilliant and humble, a rare combination. I'm sure if we had decided on a tuba solo, he would have said "no problem"! I will be forever amazed at what he helped us accomplish. He is co-owner of Pro Star recording studios in St Petersburg, Florida. He, along with co-owner Jeannette Goldman and engineer Ken Thomas, run an incredible operation, thanks to all of you!
