What people are saying about his music...
"Your compositions say something to us individually at a very deep level. It is hard to say precisely why, but they speak to us so directly and wonderfully. I must admit that all of the pieces are golden. They work quietly to relieve and soothe the anxiety that the abrupt discontinuities of every day living bring. The music makes me spiritually reflective, happy and full of faith." - Joel Passey, Ogden, Utah.
"Incredible melodies being brought forth from the pianist here. Wonderful dynamics and arrangements for this song! I am in love with this, and it will be on my play list. Soft full chord progressions bring a harmonizing sound of melodies to the ear..." - fb, Wilmington, North Carolina
