beautiful songs
it was summertime, we had too much time, we got ourselves in trouble...

Eva Tree

Super sweet!
I shared a show with John and then we traded discs.
Wow!! This is a special performer and a wonderful recording.


Heartfelt, driven, intelligent--and funny
Several moments on this CD reach deep into the listener, and the emotional candor of the lyrics can surprise, entertain, and enlighten. The percussion perfectly complements (and adds to) the texts. #11 blew me away, and #4 is just beautiful.


excellent work
excellent work - definitely the type of music i was looking for, quiet but intense, and both meaningful and whimsical. good for late at night, either to fall asleep to, or for calming background music while you read a book.
