If you are a music person and especially if you love something a little different you will enjoy.... I love their style." -- David Stafford, host of KKUP Friday Folk-Off
"Cool...I'm flattered when people like one of my tunes well enough to do something with it like that." -- Al Petteway, Grammy-winning composer and guitarist
