Love what you did on 808, you perform as if it's so easy but I can hear such skill in there, your vocals are understated but perfect to express those Bluesy lyrics

PS, I have a lot of catching up to do with your songs I see - Just listened to "Someday" and now I remember what a great singer/songwriter you are :)

So good to hear from you again Dave. You are probably the only person who would understand and appreciate Emily Osgaby's Autobiography, thanks so much for liking it - Jilly

J.D....I wish you all the best 2008 can possibly offer...beginning with..

"A Question" (R. Frost)

A voice said, look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.

Hey J.D.

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my music and the nice comments. I am streaming your page to check out all of your tunes. Do you have any recordings done with more instrumentation? Not that it is needed but it would add an extra dimension to your excellent voice. I think my favorite of you songs is "Butternut Hill", I'm a sucker for good lyrics and harmonies. "These Memories to Hold" fits the bill as well. You have a great catalog of tunes. I can definitely hear the Gary Pucket influence.

Your friend,
Mike

Hey J.D.

I discovered your music at Cashbox Magazine on line in the Cashbox All Indie Picks charts. (www.cashboxmagazine.com) Your lyrics are very solid and thoughtful but I am really enjoying the quality of your voice, it has a Gary Puckett quality to it. Have you done or ever thought of doing one of his songs? That would probably be a mazing to hear.

Anyway, keep up the good work and keep crankin out the tunes.

Your friend,
Michael Peace
