Hi Kathleen,

Thanks for your kind comment, I really appreciate that. Now is almost 2 o’clock at night in London and I am listening your CD in my cabinet. There is so much Nostalgie and Piece in your music that for a moment the listener can just forget about all the negativities surrounding him. Besides, you are an excellent pianist with the soft female pianistic touch))) and very beautiful voice. I congratulate you with this CD release and hope that one day you might be performing my songs too. haha, Who knows?? ))))

Good Luck,

Hey Kathleen - Thanks for requesting me. Great to be friends over here, too.
Loving your tracks here - lots of soul - something about your way makes me think of Carole King, if she'd gone all the way into jazz (big compliment!). And Denis' Hammond is the perfect accent - I live for the B3. All good things to you. Brenda (jazz/r&b/roots vocals)

Kathleen, love to have you as a friend. Beautiful music you and fellow musicians are delivering. I will be listening, more!

Music to Music,


















Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
