O’Shea said. O’Shea teamed up with Nashville Record Producer Bill Keller and spent one week in a Nashville recording studio, laying down her vocals for an eight song disc.

The CD was released one week ago on March 24th, and is available locally for purchase at Leap of Faith Christian Music and Books in the Sonora Plaza.

O’Shea will be performing at the Twain Harte Golf Club on Saturday April 18th, during the annual Sonora Cat Rescue Fashion Show. Call (209) 962-1228 for more ticket information.
