“We found Shimmer to be consistently engaging!  The assessable thematic refrain gives this song a distinct identity, not to mention the impeccable world inspired musicianship.  This clearly has an earthy yet ethereal quality that captures the spirit of the immersive ambient mood.”


“The beautifully crafted world ambient theme of Entangled is immediately engaging.  This song induces a sensual vibe, as the title implies.  The saxophone meets Indian flute is an original combination that really works!  Good luck and congratulations!  You are exceptionally talented - Keep pressing on with your Muse!”
