Songs of Faith, Comfort & Healing

(official release August 18, 2019)



Believe me when I say Crossing Jordan is more than just a new recording project. There is no doubt it was a special calling for me to create some much needed peace & comfort in the best way I know how, through music; even its timing was beyond my control. When you get a “calling” you have to respond. Crossing Jordan is my response to that call. 

Wishing you Love, Peace & Comfort.



This album is dedicated to my mom,

Joan Ursula Pinelli Lurgio

As far back as I can remember my mom taught the importance of family, love, faith & God. She lives her faith every day and has instilled that faith in me.

I love You, Mom.  Thank You
