General comments:

With the right exposure or representation, this talent is "good enough for prime time". He has a tender love affair going with his guitar. All songs seem to be structured to his voice in a rather interesting manner. He has a honey/smoky voice. They work well together. The source of music seems to rise from a journal of personal poetry. Very welcoming recording. Lots of warmth and peace in his style. (Anachro1@pacbell.net)
