"What I enjoy about Alan's music is the positive message about the presence of love and spirit in our everyday world. It touches on the challenges of being "at the crossroads of life" and the freedom of feeling "at times I am so beautiful". The depth of Alan's lyrics allow for listening to the CD time and time again. And often the "aha" comes from listening to a song that I have heard before, but not thought about in a particular way until that very moment. I highly recommend his music AND his message." Brenda E
