Beautiful work! Love everything about it. Moves from soulful to mystical and back..Like moving from Meshell Ndegeocello to Hildegard von Bingen…seems strange on paper but to the ears it’s tasteful and it works!

Oh Jeris! I am so appreciative that you listened, and so appreciative of your lovely references. Both Meshell and Hildegard are frequently with me when I write. That those apparently disparate influences emerge is lovely! Happy new year!

Such beautiful guitar work and poignant, heartfelt words. Captures just the right mood. Nice blend of vocals and spoken word.

Deb — thank you for listening. I totally agree about the guitar — Haskel’s playing is just exquisite.

Very very good, both the singing and Haskel’s playing.

Thanks Per! Can’t wait to hear what might be up your sleeve! ;)

I think (I think too much) there has always been and will always be broken babies. Maybe there’s more ‘opportunity’ for them now. I would venture to say definitely more exposure. I just hope there will always be people like you who are this affected and can remind us (ok, me) not to be too callous.

Thanks dear Speck. Without knowing you personally, I would have to agree that you do present as one who may think quite a lot — as for the “too much” — that must be a relative term. ;)

Gorgeous. Beautiful lyrics that truly resonate in my heart too. Divine guitar tones and chord choices. Lovely vocal performance.

Thanks Em. I’ve thought of you quite a lot as I record these songs.
