  2. I was sitting with my aunt at the vetrans hospital, when I recieved the email to listen to the review. It was 4th of July and we had talked the doctor into turning the hospital bed around to watch all the fireworks on the horizon,WE were on the 4th floor ICU section. She and I listened to it for the first time together. It brought tears to my eyes to share that moment with her,i will treasure that memory,thank you for such an amazing review Steve and chrissie and for all the hard work you do to help us artist shine in the best light.your talent with words are equal to those greatest in music.
    and to update SHe is eating on her own and doing much better. :)

    The insite and imagry that you discribe in your reviews of
    my music is proof and testemant that both of you have been given the gift of music,that is only reserved for musicians who have worked hard and sacrificed alot to experiance the gift of enlightenment and soul replenishing power that music can do.
    You are on the same wavelength as those who create music!
    In short there are only a rare few people in this world who are truly qualified to review music,and you two are amungst those privileged few,
    Thank you for all that you do

  15. I had the pleasure of adjusting my imaginary wings and taking flight with the album "Whispers from Silence." Tom Moore's imaginative musical voyage and Sherry Finzer's lovely flute interpretations are a divine and mystical ride. I highly recommend to anyone to take the journey with these two talented artists. Thanks again Tom & Sherry for my meditative and peaceful experience.

  16. When sitting alone at night in a studio composing and performing our musical stories, one is never quite sure if the intent will ever be fully understood. What a wonderful surprise it is to find that someone can can provide pure poetic majic in his ability to descripe each composition in such great detail: nuance, emotion, context, performance, orchestration and much more. Your reviews bring the colors of our music to life.

    From all of us who have been blessed to share our artistry with yours, thank you.

  19. Steve,

    Thanks so much for taking time to review my new album Crossroads. I was like "Wow" about the Elton John reference since his early work influenced me as a kid, particularly Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding. So when you noticed similarities with my track Shed my Skin it showed amazing insight on your part.

    Thanks again for sharing my music with your audience and for everything you and Chrissie do at OWMR!

  32. Steve and Chrissie, I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to listen to, review and speak about my debut piano solo album, Soul Whispers. As an artist, I try to convey my emotions and thoughts through my music to the listener. Not only were you able to pick up on what I wanted to bring forth through my music, but your emotional review conveyed it many more times than I had intended and on a much deeper level than even I was aware of. I thank you for your kind words, which I am humbled by, and for your commitment and support of independant artists like myself.
    Much appreciation and respect,
