About the Album

"Before" a Harvie S composition that met a Sherri Roberts lyric, has more thanone storey hehind its yearning, questioning melody. Harvie wrote it on Setpember 10, 2001, and later could think of no more appropriate title than "Before." Sherri, who had lost her father a few years prior, also suffered the death of her mother during those last months before a nation lost its innocence.
