NOTES
While on tour in Australia, Schelker decided to develop a cd focusing on the behind the scenes loneliness an artist feels while on tour. The flip side to full houses and encores, is packing up your gear, long after the crowd is gone, and heading for an empty hotel room. Also featured on this LP, is the Anti-Doping anthem,"Dear Marion Jones". Schelker, former internationally undefeated, Swiss National Boxing Champion, composed this song out of frustration with the state of international sports these days. "Dear Marion Jones" stresses the point of "What's the real winner's name?" when one uses performance enhancing drugs to cheat their way to championships. This thought provoking and motivational song sends a clear message to the youth that holding your head high, with the knowledge of having competed fairly, is what makes you a real winner. This is Schelker's fifth CD release as a solo artist and
fifth release on her self-owned label, foundagirl records.
