What the Industry has to say about "Crossing the Line"
"Excellent and noteworthy, appealing to Americana and music enthusiasts alike."
Former Executive Director, Americana Music Association
"Washington resident Garr is a singer and a songwriter. Let me correct myself, Garr is a superb singer and a wonderful songwriter. Here we have the debut of a talent every bit as good as anything in 'Billboard's' top five, a guy who can coax every ounce of emotion from a heart ballad. One who defies the listener not to hit the dance floor when he turns out a rocker? Garr just knocked me out. Enough said."
Pete Smith's Rock Pile, England
"We received Garr Lange's album and rate it excellent. What a talented performer you have there. We are quite interested in introducing his music and career to the booming Euro markets."

Thank you and Comstock Records. Audience response has been great, especially for "Everything She Does", "Red Hot" and "Fire All Your Guns".
