Liner Notes for "Just Making it Up"
Original Tunes by Val James
Val grew up in a show business family in “Valley Girl” country. She expressed an early interest in music while listening to her mother, Margaret Lenhart, rehearse for shows with Bing Crosby. The tunes from the American Songbook proved to be Val’s favorites. Many of the songs she currently performs or writes have roots in the music of the 30’s and 40’s . "Partners For Life" and "Bon Appetit" have been called new “old” standards. Listen further and you’ll hear her novelty tunes and songs for kids.
