A few comments from the public
“I can’t stop listening to the CD. I listen to it every day when I come home from work. After I am with teens all day I crave silence so normally I don’t listen to anything on purpose, but now I listen to your CD and it does the same work as silence. I love it!”
“We’re really enjoying your CD and listen to it almost every day.”
“I don’t know what we were expecting to hear, but it wasn’t this. A few of our friends have made CDs and so we were maybe expecting something like that – but this is soooo beautiful, amazing.”
“I must say that that is the most thought provoking and relaxing cd that I have listened to in a very long time. The musicianship on it is incredible.”
“Love the vocals, harp, PIANO, guitar. Just AMAZING!”
“I have already listened to the cd and want to hear it again many times- I think it is beautifully done.”
“The deep places that “REST” takes us to must be very profound as the songs keep coming around over & over for hours & days.”
