What listeners say:

As I was listening to your musical poetry I could feel myself drifting off to another place.....you certainly have a gift of awakening ones senses and transcending them to another place and time.....I love it and can't wait to hear more. Please let me know when you are playing next. I'm actually looking forward to my commute home tonight.....
-Karen L.

For some reason, and I can't explain why, I was randomly searching iTunes. Then I found you. I decided to click on your name, and listen to "Expressions". I was suddenly intrigued with the beauty of it, and purchased your album a couple of weeks ago. I sit here now listening to it, like I do every night before I go to sleep, staring into space with some sort of wonderment. I love "Field Of Flowers", the true beauty of this piece, and others is quite astounding.
I hope you keep making music like this, it is dazzling.
-Tom B., Age 16, Sufflolk, England 

We put it on Sunday morning, and it was so pleasant to wake up to... gentle, cascading...
-Dick K.

Love your music - Oh it makes me so happy - so much life & passion - Thank you.
-Marina E.

It's quite good, very nice tone poems if I can say that, blending well varied techniques and color and figures ... I think you'd have enjoyed hanging around the piano with Debussy too! going over ideas.
-Rocky N.

I have enjoyed listening to your pieces, and especially like your neo-impressionist leanings. There is a reassuring calmness about your music.
-Durwynne H.

Soothing and relaxing yet intriguing as well. Very nice! "Butterflies" is my favorite so far.
-Doug R.

Samples of all the pieces, including the short pieces, are available at the Pineshadow website.
