    Shipe, I must be honest, I have lost track of you a bit since your move down south. However, you just crossed my mind and I did a little search. Your new stuff is fantastic. Possibly even a little enviable but I don't care to expand on that as not to give you a big head. I'm on the mailing list now so when you make it up North, I'll know.

    There are no "one of a kind" voices. Never have been, never will be. This might be as close as it gets. John's vocals are clear, hearable, extremely pleasant, and as distinctive as it gets. John clearly knows his voice intimately, and uses it as well as anyone I've heard.

    Hi John, Good luck with the tour. I have been listening to your Yellow House CD and intend to play a track on my weekly show next week (Fridays noon-2 PT on Radio23.org). Perhaps you'll have internet access. Be hearing you Zaph
