Piano composition and performance – “Toccata”:
“Franz List came to mind. So did Rachmaninoff but from my POV migod, you have chops! Seems to blend a bit of jazz phrasing into classical which led me to consider Dave Brubeck as well as possible influences go. This is just astoundingly good. I cannot say enough” – Avery T. - Deacon-Harrie
Orchestral composition – “Christabel” violin rhapsody:
“Ah, what a beautifully alluring darkness. You capture the depth of the subtle yet irresistible attraction perfectly. The detail and arrangement render a cloying atmosphere rife with unspeakable horror shrouded in a dreamy mist leading one inevitably on. This is absolutely gorgeous! Bravo, sir, Bravo!” – Kevin Graves
Collaborative composition and fiddle performance “This Old Box”:
“Great job! I wasn't expecting country here! You nailed it with these guys! Trade the violin for a fiddle and give us some more great music!” - Sir Suicide Jockey
