James Todd has written:
"These songs, simply put, are melodies from my heart and soul. I call them 'heartsongs' because at the time I wrote each one, it evoked a unique emotion from a place deep within me – emotions and feelings that I didn’t even know I was harboring. At turns, these are my expressions of love, longing, hope, sorrow, doubt, joy, wonder…… emotions we all feel and own, but may have difficulty realizing and expressing with words. Yet, many of the songs are vocal in essence, with the cello and its voice-like quality, the singer of the melody. I hope that my music might touch your soul and help express your heart’s song, and the quiet beauty within."
