What Folks Are Saying About Ontario Moon
“Have just listened to it for the first time. I am completely blown away. It is so wonderful. Made me laugh, and cry. Congratulations on creating something so very special. I am going to tell everyone!”
“I love your album! It’s so well done and enjoyable. The musicians are stellar, the songs too. Bravo!”
“This record is such a blithe step through the deepest, hardest experiences with such a strange combination of the deepest and lightest touch at the same time. I LOVE ‘Night Nurse’ and ‘Fade to Black’ for the deep lows and oh good heavens ‘Credo,’ and then ‘Ontario Moon’ and ‘So Love Goodbye’ for the why isn’t this a movie sound track feel because it has such a rocking timeless vibe to it, lyrically and musically. You have the most immensely talented friends playing on this record. It is just so right.”
