“Americana/folk rock sound... Earthy undertones flow throughout his pieces, creating an old Western ambiance. His poetic lyrics combine with beautiful harmonies and melodies rich with acoustic honesty, transporting listeners to a different time. His hauntingly beautiful, deeply rich voice reminds you of Johnny Cash circa “Hurt.” In a world filled with bubbly pop and club remixes, it’s refreshing to find honest lyrics presented in a way that makes listeners reflect on themselves.”

"Thank you for your music!"

“I look forward to bringing my listeners more great music from yourself...”

Todd G - The Shuffle, WFIT-FM, Florida

“the first impression is one of Indian Qwali music mixed with Tibetan chanting and a dash of Eastern European flare. “Moon Dreaming” captures the essence of those worlds and much more in these laid-back, acoustic-driven, instrumental wanderings.”

Glenn BurnSilver - The Loveland Reporter-Herald

“the acoustic guitar is... captivating ”

“Sweet Mystery is a collection of country-tinged folk that leaves the listener longing for the time when music was unapologetically raw and organic.”

“This is a wonderful record! Thanks for the great music and songwriting.”

“A tapestry of world music”
