You are an amazing player, and obviously light years ahead of the average…  I think that players need to hear what you are doing. They need to know it’s possible to play as you do, and that the steel isn’t limited to 3 chord country songs. –  Mike Perlowin, classical steel guitarist, recording artist, Los Angeles, California

I enjoyed your CD. Formidable technique! I hope it helps in your goal of releasing the steel guitar from its usual pigeonhole of Hawaiian and country music. Best wishes.  – Dr. David Evans, Professor of Music, The University of Memphis, and author of many texts on music, and Grammy Award winner.
