Quality Stuff!
Simply put, a CD that will make lift your spirits. No matter what my mood, I always feel better after hearing this CD and Paul Hayward's music in general.


Why haven't I heard of this guy before?
A little spare time on a business trip in San Francisco, I went to Fisherman's Wharf and stopped to listen to a street performer who sounded remarkably like James Taylor. After listening to him play a few songs, I bought the CD he was selling. I'm glad I did - I like every song on the CD - and how often can you say that? If you like James Taylor, Van Morrison, you will enjoy this CD. Good luck Paul Hayward, I hope you get the recognition you deserve.

Excellent Vocals, Great Homeslice
Excellent vocals, I knew the man could look but he sure can sing too. Bought two of the same thing to keep in both places I live, my car and work. Baby gets lulled to sleep by some of the music. Good going, Paul.

I love it! Better than John Mayer and Dave Mathews!
Great road trip music! Best album yet. Great mix of folk, rock, blues, and country. They dont make enough quality albums like this anymore.

Taylor Harvey

Truly a great songwriter.
Paul Hayward is a shining example of an all-around player. He starts off by writing great songs, and this collection is no exception. His story telling is just where it needs to be for any given song, be it subtle or right up front. I love the pangs my heart gets when I hear "Tess d'Bougainvilla," a wonderful observance of a little girl growing into womanhood. Then his delivery, rich voice and stage presence kicks in and you feel more great things coming from this seasoned singer/songwriter. I always hear a wonderful blend of James Taylor and Van Morisson when I listen to Paul Hayward. I highly recommend any of his CDs for your collection.

Tom Krompetz

Excellent and very poignant cd. This album will affect you in ways you see only with artists like Jeff Buckley or James Taylor.
