Kim Loftis:

Delightful Harp Improvs; Absolutely Enchanting!
I *can't* believe that noone's written a review on CDBaby for this fabulous album!!! Oh well, let's remedy that, shall we? Imaginocean is a delightful album filled with inspired playing, infectious pieces and themes of nature at her finest. At nearly an hour in length, it really showcases Stephanie's immense talent, as her harp dances joyously through one enchanting piece after another. The music sparkles, never failing to make me smile!!! A journey unto itself, this is harp improv artistry at it's greatest. If you enjoy beautiful and delightful music on any instrument, and especially on harp, this is an absolute must-own!!! Marvelous work, Stephanie!!! Extremely highly recommended!!!
