Elixir to a troubled soul
The clips on the site of "A Face in the Clouds" are an elixir to a troubled soul today. Stress and problems… and then there’s music from Marshall... it’s always in the right spot at the right time. I can hardly wait till I open my mailbox and find the new one waiting. Thank you for brightening each day!

A spiritual experience
At my husband's insistance, we bought The Collection this past weekend in Fredericksburg. I have seen and heard your music before but had never bought a CD until now and I am hooked. I have long been a lover of piano and piano music and have many CD's in my collection but I must confess that I have never had an artist touch my Spirit and soul like your music. Listening to your music is a spiritual experience for me every time I turn it on. Continue to use your talent for His glory. May you be truly blessed.

Folklife Festival in SA
Hi: My wife and I are great fans of Marshall Styler - met him one year at Folklife Festival in SA. I just purchased his new upcoming CD a little while ago. My wife and I would like to ask a favor from Marshall if he would sign our CD before you mail it out. Have him sign it to "Tom and Elaine." All the other CDs from Marshall have been signed. We'd like to keep a good thing going. Thank you for your kindness.

A fan since 1998!
Hello, I've been a fan of Marshall's since 1998 when I discovered his music in Fredericksburg. I had the honor of meeting him as well. His music has been an inspiration during so many phases in my life, including my moments of writing. Thank you Marshall Styler for giving through your music and sharing it with all of those who have been touched by your wonderful gift.

Touches the heart while stirring the soul
Marshall, Your music touches the heart while stirring the soul. You made our 3rd anniversary in Fredericksburg memorable. I want you to know my husband is going through a lot with his dad going through terminal cancer. He saw what you went through and your music made him feel better. We don't have much time with him. But, my husband (after hearing your music) knows to spend as much time with him as we can. Also, our son had a cleft palate at birth and has gone through a lot of surgeries and such. You made all our troubles go away for awhile. I could go on and on... Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You are an inspiration and we are truly in your debt for the rest of our lives. May God bless you richly as you have blessed ours with your heavenly, God-breathed music. (There are no words that can do justice to describe your music.) Thanks again for all that you did for us and more!

Marshall, you may not remember me, but I met you on a Sunday, in a drizzly downtown Fredricksburg. I got three CDs from you that day, each of which you graciously signed. I also got a handshake from you--one that has come to mean more to me as I've read about you and Kate, and especially listened to your breathtaking music. Thanks so much for being so kind, and for sharing the gift that God has given you. I'm thinking of dusting off my old keyboard and having a go at it again - but, likely, I'll simply relax and enjoy the wonderous music you've created. Thanks so much! May God bless you and yours...

I just wanted to write you a short note and tell you that your music has inspired me in so many ways. I remember when I first met the two of you in Fredericksburg with my ex wife and former step son.
Well, I have been back from Iraqi for sometime and I am now stationed back in Fort Hood Texas. We are due to deploy back to Baghdad come next August. I am not looking forward to it, but I guess duty calls.
I just downloaded your new CD "The Twilight Concertos" from iTunes. I surely hope that you all get the money for it. I guess it might of been better if I would of ordered it directly from your site.
I want you to know that I really appreciated the fact that you were willing to send me autographed copies of your CD to me when I was in Iraqi. I went through a lot at times, but your music managed to keep me grounded and to help me realize that even in the midst of hell I was able to hear sounds of heaven. Your music helped me to relax and to unwind after some of the stuff I went through. I am so thankful for people like you. I don't know if you realize just how much it meant to me that the two of you were willing to think of me when I was in the desert.
I consider the two of you to be friends of mine and I really hope one day I could see Marshall in concert or in Fredericksburg. If Marshall will be playing in a concert, would you please let me know. I would love to take a date to your show and to experience the beauty of your music in person. I would do anything in the world to see Marshall play in person.
If I had the connections, I would recommend that he play on national TV for Oprah. It may sound strange, but I think everyone should experience this music for themselves. I will never forget the first time I heard this music when I was walking in Fredericksburg.
Thank you so very much. God Bless you and your family!!
Your friend, Troy Merritt

My wife Terry and I met Marshall April 3/4, 1999 downtown Fredericksburg. We were on our honeymoon when we first heard Marshall’s wonderful music. He had set up on the square playing and had quite a crowd gathered. Terry and I were absolutely captivated. Being a Trumpeter I was sold after the first set. When Marshall took a break we spoke with him about his music and just did not have enough superlatives. He in turn ask about Terry and I, upon hearing that we were on our honeymoon Marshall very graciously signed a set (3) of CD’s for us.
I can say the Terry and I have become Marshall’s unofficial music ambassadors to family, friends, coworkers and others. It’s become a source of enjoyment to see the responses of others and then be able to tell "the rest of the story"...

I love Marshall's music! I bought several of his CD's in Canton, and I play them for my students when we write. In addition to teaching, I am a trainer for the New Jersey Writing Project in Texas. We are having a conference in San Antonio April 27-30, and we would like to invite you to be a vendor. This conference involves teachers from all over the state, and I know they'd love Marshall's music as much as I do. (I'll find out how many teachers usually attend and get back to you—it's HUGE!)

A bit of heaven
I just want to thank you for creating such relaxing, soothing, calming music. When I listen to the music I enter another world called Heaven. There was a bit of friction at work recently and I brought in from home a CD player and put your music on where it could be heard. It’s amazing how well it worked. Your music changed attitudes literally. A couple weeks ago the CD came up missing and after confronting my husband (that was after I found the empty CD case in his car) I found out he loves to listen to your music also. I purchased Red River Crossing when the girls and I made our yearly trip to Canton in November 2005. I am looking forward to purchasing Jericho and the Twilight Concertos. Thanks again for sharing your God given talent with all of us.

Jericho, playing outside of Remember Me in Fredericksburg yesterday, resulted in my purchase of 5 of your CDs including the Trilogy. Am listening to Mockingbird Station while writing this note.
Couldn't help but note "Rochester" in your brochure, I moved from Rochester to San Antonio last September. Like you, the best move I ever made. I also remember Duke Jupiter.
Have subscribed to your news letter and hope I will be able to purchase more of your CDs on line. My kind of music.

Long overdue Thank You!
It seems like a lifetime ago that I sat with my girlfriend (now my wife of 25 years) at the Great Laker Inn in Oswego, N.Y., watching Marshall and Duke Jupiter. I was a true fan then and have just rediscovered him. It's nice to find that as I've aged and grown, so has he. One thing that remains the same is that he can still move me to tears. So... as I sit by my keyboard with tears streaming down my face, I just wanted to pass on a long overdue thank you. We said hello many times in passing and that was about it, but somehow I feel like I've found an old lost friend. I hope life is treating you well...

hooked on your music
Kate: I heard your husband play for the first time in a coffee shop close to the river in downtown Austin years ago. I was visiting and stumbled onto the shop one morning. I bought Mockingbird Station that same morning. I have been hooked on this music every since.
I came back to Seattle and played it for my wife. Needless to say she loved it. We listen to it on our boat when we go to Canada for vacation. It is wonderful music to relax to while boating, or working, or playing—you get the message. We have turned all of our boating friends onto this music and they all love it.
I went online to see if you had a website with any new music. Wow, was I surprised! I just ordered the new collection box of 6 cd's. This will be part of my wife's Valentine's Day gift. She will be so excited and happy!
Wishing both of you much success and happiness. Keep making the beautiful music and we will continue to share it in the Northwest.

I was in Fredericksburg Saturday, January 14th. As we walked into a store, which very well may have been "Remember Me, Too", I saw your tapes set up on a table by the front door. I told my husband look, it's Marshall Styler's music. We had just purchased our second CD at the Wildseed Farm. As I was leaving the store there was a man sitting behing the table this time. I asked my husband if he thought that could be him. I started to go back and ask but I didn't. Is it possible that you were there? Jeff and I bought our first CD at the Wildseed Farm and loved it! We couldn't wait to go back and by a second CD. I know without a doubt we will buy the third CD on our next trip back to Fredericksburg.

I bought the Red River Crossing CD on impulse, liking the description and the cover art. Beautiful is a good beginning point for describing the songs on this CD. There is a richness and spiritual quality that would settle the most troubled mood. If you are a person who experiences music visually (seeing images of people and places while enjoying it) and like the kind of music that takes you to those secret places in your heart that you save for special quiet moments, then you will like this collection very much.

My sister Susan Jane Rutkowsky worked at the GingerBread House in Galveston Texas where they featured Marshall's music.Nov 04 we brought her to Oregon due to her bone cancer and Nov 05 we lost her to cancer. She shared with me Marshall's music.I am a singer... words to music is my LIFE. My SOUL... My therapy when I need to cope... I pour out my heart and soul in song with words. My personal mantra regarding closeness is this: "A TRUE FRIEND KNOWS THE SONG OF YOUR SOUL AND CAN SING THE WORDS BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU FORGET THEM." In times of grief and sadness when you hurt so badly you cannot find words you just feel LOST.... With Marshall's music you will find you need no words... his music is grief... life and comfort. Just when you feel NO HOPE LEFT Marshalls music touches you through the sadness like the first kiss of your true love.... and you know you can live again and life goes on.

Twilight Concertos et al
Four years ago, on a sleety, freezing cold December day in Fredericksburg I was walking down the sidewalk with friends and I heard this awesome, incredible music. Your son had a table set up in a doorway and I bought the trilogy on CD and Red River Crossing on tape. I literally ran that tape until it wore out before I played the CDs-it was all I listened to.
Although Red River Crossing will always be my favorite, Twilight Concertos is going to be a close runner-up. I recognize elements of the trilogy in it but with a maturity and richness- which sounds totally crazy but is the only way I can describe the music. I particularly like Wedding in the Woods and the Adagio.
I thought Jericho was as good as it gets but your music just keeps getting better. I peep at the display every time I go to Canton Trades Days to make sure a new one doesn't get by me. November 5, 2005 was a good day!

Dear Mr. Styler,
We spend a good deal of time on the beautiful Oregon Coast and earlier this year we had a friend visiting us there who brought your "Jericho" for us to enjoy while we sat and watched the magnificent sunset over the ocean. My friend always finds a thoughtful hostess gift during her visits, and this time I asked her if she would please just leave your music because we had enjoyed it so much.
Yesterday, we received The Red River Trilogy and The Twilight Concertos and are already enjoying and looking forward to many more relaxing hours listening to your beautiful music. It's interesting that your inspiration has come from the lands of Texas... because it has been every bit as inspiring and uplifting in a totally different setting.

I have been a serious fan of your music since I found your (Duke Jupiter) Taste The Night album in the late 70s. I had the privilege of seeing you on tour when you played the Rainbow Music Hall in Denver, CO promoting your 4th album, Duke Jupiter 1. I was in line 7 hours early so I could be the first one in the hall! Then, I was able to hear you play at the Samarai in Oklahoma City. We had a couple drinks together. I'm afraid I didn't make a very good impression. I was so thrilled to finally meet you.

Hello! I am typing from just outside of Austin. I met Mr. Styler in Fredricksberg a month or so ago during the purchase of his 3 CDs. As I drove back home I popped them in the player in my truck and listened all the way home and couldn't get enough!! I called you and left a message giving you thumbs up. Your music is really incredible. This is the music that I love to listen to. It is soothing, calming to shot nerves which I seem to have too often being a stressed out single mom. I felt like it was "safe" to listen to it. So much is just trash basically. I do have mostly praise worship and contemporary christian music.

In all our many years of being exposed to many forms of beautiful music by many artists, NO sounds have impacted either of us in a way that your music has. The more we listen, the more we appreciate the artistry and the emotion-evoking melodies that no other Composer we know of has so consistantly achieved. Such peacefulness, contentment, and that "Texas-feeling" so many of your fans speak of, we truly understand by our own experience with your sounds. We can't adequately express our appreciation enough in words, but are planning a trip to Fredericksburg in July and plan to again purchase a number of your CDs as gifts to friends and family members.

I purchased "Jericho" on a visit to Fredericksburg this Spring. I have worn it out, so I just purchased the Trilogy. I work in a very stressful environment, and Marshall's music is so calming. Words cannot express how deeply his music moves me. I hope to be able to see him perform in person.

When I am not listening to The Trilogy, I listen to Internet Oasis on Live 365.com. Guess what I am hearing? You got it - Marshall Styler's Red River Crossing!
What great and soothing music. It is just beautiful. Congratulations for being heard on The Net.

Best Music in the World...
My family made a trip from Hutto to the Wild Seed Farm in Fredericksburg yesterday and met your son. We had planned to stop by on the way back home and buy your CD, but we had an unfortunate change in plans. For Mother's Day, my husband has been online all day trying to remember your name...and he found you. Now we intend to search all of Austin till we find your CD's. (I saw a posting earlier that said your music can be found at "Waterloo"...smile) Thanks for sharing your beautiful music. I'll be sharing your music with others as well...

Where have I been all your life?
Hi, I just got given a couple of your CDs by a guy over here in the UK., a sort of thanks for a job I did,.. this makes the hassle all worthwhile!
Your website is definitely getting a prominent link off mine at "pbsong.com" and I shall also be using it as intermission fills when I go out with the PA to do all kinds of gigs!
Utterly beautiful, expect a few orders from across the pond and if you ever get over here, it would be a honour to
Last weekend my husband and I
were in Fredericksburg, TX and heard one of Marchall's
CDs. I fell in love with it and had to have it.
I have listened to it over and over. It speaks
to me. I am anxious to get more of his CDs. Thank
you for sharing your gift with all of us who
love to listen.
husband and I went to Fredericksburg for our
honeymoon. We bought Jericho and you signed
it. We love the music! You are great! Thank
Sandra and Greg Cole
husband and I, along with several other couples,
were in Fredericksburg, TX recently and heard
your CDs playing as we walked by the awesome
shops. My friend, Jody, spoke very highly
of your music and your wonderful son shared
different songs pertaining to different areas
of TX. We purchased the complete set
and have played them over and over. Awesome! Relaxing...
even used the CDs for our son's rehearsal dinner.
I kept going to check if the music had stopped
or CD needed to be changed and it was always
playing. Thank you for sharing your gift with
all of us.
husband and I purchased the trilogy about 2 years
ago. We absolutely fell in love with the beautiful
and inspirational music that we heard. We listen
to it quite often, especially when we want to relax,
unwind, and reflect. We were in Fredricksburg
recently, and purchase the new Jericho cd—just
a breathtaking as the trilogy. Best of all, we
actually ran into Marshall personally at one of
the downtown stores. We were truly honored. We
would love to attend a live performance—keep
us posted, and keep putting out this beautiful
work! God Bless!

A brief love left me with your music. Time spent with purpose. Your Music is
a very sweet memory of him... Let me know if you have any upcoming concert
appearances—would love to see you perform. Thank you for sharing your inspiration,
God is so generous with your talent and I'm sure he is pleased.
Though I have yet to make your acquaintances, I felt it appropriate to write
and endorse your work. At the ripe old age of 28, I literally can't say how many
disappointing purchases I've made over the years looking for music to move me,
to inspire me, to help me remember who I am... to smooth over a rough day or
lend emphasis to a special event, evening or project.
Marshall's music (Jericho & Blue Field's) was a gift of sorts, and for some
time the pieces lay in my car, unopened in the rush of my life. One night, driving
home late from work, I decided to open and listen to the CDs.
Within seconds, the most profound feeling of connection, beauty, clarity and
truth swept through me, pebbling my skin and bringing huge warm tears to my eyes.
My only thought was, "finally", accompanied by a huge breath that seemed
to expel all the stress and fatigue from my mind. My only disappointment at that
moment was that I had deprived myself of this rapture in letting the CDs stay
unopened for so long! I drove slowly on my way home just so I could enjoy the
To anyone reading this - if you are contemplating a music purchase, please do
not pass over Marshall & Kate's work. They are truly gifted, and your life
will be enriched with each track that plays. I cannot - and I mean this whole
heartedly - CANNOT recommend Marshall's music highly enough. If love and human
compassion had a sound, this would be it.
This music is appropriate for every special event in life, weddings, remembrances,
holidays and celebrations of every sort, it's appropriate for professional settings
as well as meditative and personal uses—we even use it to put the baby
(my niece) to sleep at night.
Marshall & Kate, thank you so much for this wonderful contribution, Texas
is lucky to have you both! Bravo....bravo...
Hello!!! Oh my goodness, your music is THE BEST!!! Don't take tranquilizers,
listen to Marshall Styler music!!! My Aunt Beth (Nefoske) spoke to you on the
phone and ordered some CDs from you. I already had Red River Crossing, and she
and my Mom bought me Jericho for my birthday. Love them both!!!! My very favorite
song of all of them is The Ballad of Brenham Road—what a BEAUTIFUL song!!!
Thank you for all the relaxing hours of enjoyment I have had listening to your
On a recent trip to Texas, I had the pleasure of meeting Marshall in Fredericksburg
and purchased all four CDs. Now, back in Michigan I have been playing the CDs
at my office. Everyone that hears asks, "Who is that?" The music is
so full of emotion! Wonderful! Thanks!
Ginny and I went to the Peddlers show in Fredericksburg and bought Red River
Crossing, Mocking Bird and Silent night. I was looking at all the gifts and this
music kept pulling me towards it like a magnetic field. I can't even imagine
what it would be like to have someone as gifted as Marshall as my soul mate.
Marshall has been given an extraordinary talent, along with his wonderful and
down home personality. Marshall even autographed each one of the CDs we purchased.

Last weekend my husband and I were in Fredericksburg, TX and heard one of Marchall's
CDs. I fell in love with it and had to have it. I have listened to it over and
over. It speaks to me. I am anxious to get more of his CDs. Thank you for sharing
your gift with all of us who love to listen.
co-worker had one of Marshall's CD's playing in his office. I
fell in love with the music. Dec. 13, 2003, my friend and I were
in Fredricksburge and saw him play there. My friend later bought
the 3 CD package. I have a couple of them myself. I love to listen
to them in my car as I'm going to and from work. I am going to
share Marshall's music with my 17 year old nephew who writes
his own music. I think he will really enjoy listening and maybe
inspire him to continue to write his own music. Thank you for
such peaceful music. In this day and age everything is so fast
paced that it's refreshing to have music that can instantly calm
a person's soul.
was recently in Texas and stopped in Fredricksburg on a Saturday
afternoon. While looking and shopping I heard this lovely sound
and found Marshall Styler with his CDs. My friend and I spoke
to him and we both purchased CDs. I thought the music was wonderful
in the store, but when I got home and it was quiet and peaceful
I played the Red River Crossing which I find so special. I can't
put into words the feeling I had, it does indeed reach the soul.
I love music of all kinds but this is so special. Thank you Mr.
Marshall and Katherine,
Marshall your Red River Crossing CD is fantastic. My girlfriend
and I were in Fredricksburg yesterday (3/5/04), when we walked
Me, Too" and were absolutely BLOWN AWAY and MESMERIZED by what we
heard. You were there signing CDs, so we bought your Red River Crossing
and you wrote, "To Bob and Brenda, May God Bless You," and
then you signed it. I haven't stopped listening to it yet and this is
Saturday (3/6/04), my girlfriend let me listen to it. Anyway, I am still
blown away and mesmerized by it, I used to think nobody could top pianists
like Richard Clayderman, John Tesch, and Yanni, but your unique piano
and synthesizer sounds are absolutely leading the pack, no kidding. I
am planning on buying all your recordings as soon as I can, I visited
your website and heard excerpts from each one of the Red River Trilogy
set, as well as Jericho and your Silent Night CDs. Thank You for sharing
your talent with the rest! of us, it is wonderful. Katherine you have
got to be proud of Marshall, he is a fantastic musician and I am glad
that you all are only about 2 hours away from where I live. Thanks Again
so special about your music, outside of the wonderful phrasing,
is that without words I can turn the music into anything I want
to. I can play the same tape a few days apart and on the first
day the song will remind me of a certain time in my life, and
the next time the same track will take me somewhere else in this
world. I am a simple kind of guy, but I thank you for giving
me such a wonderful gift with which I can enjoy life.
a note to let you know that my daughter, who lives outside of
Houston, purchased the above CD for me, autographed by Marshall.
I enjoy Gospel music, which tends to be loud, Josh Groban, theatrical,
classical, Country-Western and then I am ready for restful, inspirational
and reflective which is what I get with your CD. (I did live
in Texas for 17 years, from Rosenberg to Johnson City.) Thank
heard your music for the first time in a Mesa hospital, of all
places! I was sitting with my Mother while she recovered from
heart surgery, and it was the day before Christmas. It was about
5:a.m. and I heard this heavenly music coming from the nurses
station ... thought we'd both been whisked to heaven! I followed
the sound, totally entranced, and asked the male nurse where
he'd gotten the music. He brought his own sound system to work
and blessed the whole ward with your Christmas music that day.
Of course he sang your praises, I got the information from him,
and ... here I am, ordering everything I can. Thank you for sharing
Phyllis Beamer, Des Moines, IA
purchased one of Marshall's CD's a couple of years ago while
in Fredericksburg, and we began to listen to it every time we
took the Scenic Loop outside of town in the spring. It is one
of my favorite Cd's and I pulled it out just last week to play
while I was driving and busy. The beautiful music soothes my
soul, and has become a part of me. I just wanted to thank you
for the beauty and richness you have brought to this world. May
you be blessed and happy, and have many more manifestations of
your wonderful gift! Happy Holidays,
San Antonio, TX
was at the Country Peddler Show in Fredericksburg and in the
midst of all the crowds and all the noise, I heard this beautiful,
peaceful music. My ears led me to the spot where this was playing.
I bought Jericho and, I'm sure I will be buying some of the other
CDs - and, buying for gifts so that my friends and loved ones
can experience this same joy. I can't explain what it does to
the soul, but it certainly makes it peaceful. What beautiful,
lovely music. Thank you.
husband and I went to Fredericksburg for our first anniversary
and bought the trilogy set as our keepsake gift from our trip.
What beautiful memories your music envokes! Thank you for our
treasures... Do you plan to play in Houston (or even better -
Katy,Texas) any time soon? I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival
of my new Jerico and Silent Night CDs
husband and I enjoy and look forward to each time we listen to
your beautiful music. We would love to see a live performance.
Please put us on a list to hear about any new CD's and/or performances.
We talked to you once in Fredericksburg, Marshall, and hope to
in the future. Thank you so much for such a wonderful gift (your
music to us).
Carol and Bill Moore
was introduced to Mr. Styler and his booth at the Country Peddler
show in the Texas Hill Country town of Fredricksburg. Among the
busy hub-bub of such a setting his beautiful soothing music caught
my attention as I walked by with a crowd of people. It was like
an oasis of quiet, with the quiet man in the middle of his booth
signing copies of his music. I knew immediately I needed to know
more about the artist and his beautiful sound. We bought Red
River Crossing and now I know I need the rest of the CDs. A tiny
piece of soothing sanity in an otherwise insane world.
wife and I are big Marshall Styler fans. We now have 4 of his
CDs and I would l love to see him perform "live" sometime.
Is there a place in Austin or Fredricksburg that we could see
him? I noticed on his website that November & December dates
are not published yet? Thanks in advance for your help,
friend Sylvia Chapa and I purchased your cds at The Country Peddler
this past weekend at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds. We were
both drawn to a sound of peace. Returning to Houston I was notified
that my father was taken ill. Waiting in the ER can feel like
eternity. I am the sole care giver of my parents that mean the
world to me. My mother's health is poor, not knowing the outcome
of my father she became restless. Unable to rest, I thought of
your music, so I put one of the cds in my player and put the
earphones on her head within 20 minutes she was calm and fell
asleep. My dad is going to recover. I just wanted to thank you
for your God given gift. After going without sleep for two days
I listened to the music. The only words that can define this
music is Heaven, Peace and Tranquility. So please continue to
create your music for everyone to share.
I purchased the Jericho CD on September 7th. It was the day after
my birthday and my youth group went to Fredericksburg to climb
Enchanted Rock and then we went shopping and me and my Boyfriend
went walking around and I heard your music and just had to have
a cd. If I had the money I would buy more. It is truly very beautiful
music. I just love it. Thanks.
purchased the CD Trilogy yesterday at Trade Days in Canton, TX.
I must say that I haven't had them out of my CD player since
I got back home. They are truly beyond extraordinary and I wanted
to share with you just how much I was enjoying.
must start by saying that I was taken away by the music of Marshall
Styler when I first heard it playing outside of a little store
in Fredericksburg about two years ago. I have been hooked on
it ever since.
I am wondering if you could specifically suggest any of the songs for
my upcoming wedding. I would love to have some of Mr. Styler's music
playing as people are being seated. I would appreciate any suggestions
that you may be able to give.
met in Fredricksburg, TX where we purchased your "Red River
Crossing". Just wanted to let you know we have finished
our trip across this great land of ours and thanks to you we
enjoyed many long miles listening to your great music. Thanks
a million. It really made our trip that much more enjoyable.

your son at the Austin Convention Ctr Home Show and purchased
some CD's! The music is wonderfully calm. Thank you for sharing
your talent with us!
found your music at the Country Peddlers' Show in Amarillo, Texas.
I was so excited, this is my favorite kind of music. The tunes
on the trilogy, Red River Crossing, in particular, are so Hauntingly
Beautiful! I purchased 4 of the CDs, including the Christmas
CD. I have been playing them all day long at work. My co-workers
want to borrow them to play on their computers! Thank you so
you for the beautiful and peaceful music. I first heard you play
in Fredricksburg at the Wild Seed Farm. I have now added this
pleasant music to my outdoor patios. I look forward to your next
Katy, Tx USA
had never heard your music until - Grapefest 2003....I was walking
down one side of Main Street and I heard it from a distance and
was so excited when I found you! Your music brought tears...so
many memories and emotions welled up in my heart and mind when
I heard your music. I sat on the curb and listened for quite
sometime and when I purchased "Jericho" I was really surprised
that you were there in the store signing the CD's. That night
I listened to it as I went to bed. Thankx so much for beautiful

LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, MY HUSBAND AND I ARE IN LOVE WITH YOUR MUSIC.
WE, TOO, HEARD YOUR MUSIC WHEN YOUR SON WAS PLAYING A CD AT A
STORE IN FREDERICKSBURG THREE YEARS AGO. WHEN WE RETURNED LAST
MONTH, WE WERE TOLD THE STORE IS OUT OF BUSINESS SO NOW WE'VE
FOUND YOU ONLINE. SO HAPPY YOU HAVE A NEW CD. KEEP THEM COMING!!!!
IT'S THE MOST RELAXING, SOOTHING MUSIC EVER!! THANK YOU.
BRADENTON, FL USA -
was so happy to finally find your CD's. I am the friend of Ronald
Kelly,(see guestbook) and yes, I introduced your music to him
and his wife. Just to let you know, I first heard your music
while in a classroom. One of the teachers I work with had it
playing in the background while our students were taking a test.
Your music is the most requested by our students to listen to.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful music with us all.
Brady, TX USA -
can't think of any nicer things to say, that has not already
been said here. It seems that we just missed you in Fredericksburg,
but then maybe not, we have your music. You see, a friend of
my wife and I, talked us into going to Fredericksburg on a day
thingy and while on Main Street at one of the little shops, she
squeels "I found It". You found what, Diane? "This is the guy
I was telling you about, but could never find it at Wal*Mart
or anywhere". I never saw such to-do over some Country & Western
music before. Okay, there is another type of music. My friend,
this is where it's at. Your real. Like the guy said earlier, "you
can tell when it's mechanical and when it's real. I wonder if
you shed a tear when playing your music, I do? Thank you.
Brady, Tx USA -
I was captivated by your music when I was in Fredericksburg a
few weekends ago. I bought your 3 pack CD's. They are simply
beautiful. I play them at our MAPSCO Corporate retail store in
Addison, TX a couple days each week. People are always asking
who's playing on the CD. I tell them about your web site and
they can order these. When I read about what you said about your
wife inspiring you, it really touched me and makes the music
even more special. What an honor and an incredible compliment
for your wife. I'm sure she feels you inspire her as well. You
are two very lucky people to have that kind of relationship.
I hope someday, some man will say the same about me. Have you
published any of your music in written form? I'd love to purchase
any books or sheet music that may be available. I've played for
many years and it is so relaxing. Thank you for sharing your
inspirational music. Dorothy Moorman
Aubrey, TX USA -
like others, first heard you in Fredricksburg. I was instantly
in love with your music and sat a listened forever. It's so relaxing
and soothing. I have all of your CD's., including a Christmas
CD that I bought from you at the Woodlands Mall. I've seen your
lovely family there with you in Fredricksburg. Keep writing your
beautiful music. You have a God given talent that is a blessing
to us all.
Baytown, TX USA -
had never heard of you before I met you in Fredricksburg. Your
music is wonderful! I took the CD I bought from you to work one
day and every one loved it(I forwarded your email address to
all of them). Your musical rendions are beautiful but haunting!
My mother came from Manhattan NY (via the "Orphan Trains)and
my father came from East Texas. Red River Crossing was my first
followed by Blue Fields and Mockingbird Station. Thank to both
you and your wife!
Austin, TX USA -
was anxiously awaiting your new CD and 'Jericho' is even better
than I thought possible. I knew this time to buy two -- one for
work and one for home. Thank you for your gift; my spirit is
calm when listening to these journeys.
San Antonio, TX USA -
John Tesh...eat your hearts out! Marshall Styler has left you
in his "atmospheric dust"!!! And I love it! The words "superficial" versus "sincerity" immediately
come to mind. Keep it up Mr. Styler...you have a new fan for

jourdanton, tx USA -
first heard your music in the spring of 1999 - you were out at
the Wildflower Farm. I had recently gone through some very traumatic
events in my life and your music was so soothing "to the soul." I
now own all of your CD's (and was so glad to see you again at
the Wimberly Market Days this past weekend.) As I shared with
you, I moved from the Hill Country in August of 1999 and when
I listen to your music it takes me "back." May God bless you
Nederland, TX USA -
many others, I was drawn to your music while wandering the main
street in Fredericksburg. I immediately purchased Red River Crossing
and have never tired of listening to the beautiful melodies on
that CD. Being a pianist of many years, I can truly appreciate
the artistry that you create in your compositions. Thank you
for touching so many lives with your gift. I look forward to
owning more of your albums soon.
Dublin, TX USA -
son-in-law bought me three of your CD's 3 years ago when he was
home visiting family and I truly love your music. I will be traveling
to Harper, Texas with my daughter and him to visit his family's
'ranch' for several days this summer, arriving the 1st of July.
Was very disappointed to see on your web site that you will only
be in Fredricksburg the weekends in June. Will keep listening
Leesburg, VA USA -

it so much needed to find out about the Trilogy, Can't wait til
I can order the others. Thanks.
Winfield, Ks USA -
husband and I found your music almost two years ago. We were
walking down the street in Fredericksburg and heard it playing.
It has been a blessing to me ever since. I especially enjoy all
four of the CD's that I have. There is no favorite. I look forward
to ordering the new Jericho CD.
Brownwood, TX USA -
I was introduced to your music by one of the music channels on

you on the net to buy a CD.
Statesboro, GA USA -
I continue to pray for you to experience God's unmerited favor
and healing in your spirit and body. Marshall, your music continues
to bring moments of peace in this hectic world. God has gifted
you with an ability to bring peace thru the "audio impressionism" that
you extend from your heart, to ours. Thanks for being a grace-giver
as you share from the overflow of your heart. James Murray, Coordinator
of Worship Bear Creek Bible Church Keller, TX
Keller, TX USA -
met you this past weekend in Fredericksburg. I was drawn to your
music outside one of the stores. I bought four of your CDs and
have been enjoying them every day. Keep up the great work!
Austin, TX USA -
there... and ALOHA from Maui, Hawaii. I first heard your music
on the Venus Rising Screensaver where it plays "Summer Night,
Port Isabel Light" in the background! I love soft piano music
and am a fan of those who plays the piano. I just purchased the
Trilogy and I can't wait to hear them. :)
Lahaina, HI USA -
heard and met you and your wife in Wimberly around the 1993-1995
time frame when I was wandering in and out of shops. I was mesmerized
by the sounds you were producing. Having at that time just gone
through a divorce and moving to a new job and new area of Texas,
the calmness that your music brought to my heart was just "what
the doctor ordered". Now after collecting all your CDs, I have
incorporated that "stillness" that your music brings to my heart
while I type away on those 14-17 hour days (as I am a medical
transcriptionist)with your music in the background and never
tire of it. I send my heartfelt thanks for your work of love
and wish you and yours good health and many more years of writing
and performing --thanks to you and your wife for having entered
my life at the "right time".
Georgetown, TX USA -
MY MOTHER AND I WERE ON A TRIP TO FREDERICKSBURG APRIL 18 WE
VISITED THE WILDSEED FARM WHERE YOU WERE PERFORMING. I COULDN'T
WALK AWAY FROM YOUR MUSIC. I ESPECIALLY LOVED THE "WALTZ IN THE
RAIN" FROM MOCKINGBIRD STATION. I BOUGHT THE CASSETTE FOR MY
CAR, BUT I WILL BE PURCHASING SOME CD'S SOON. I PLAY THIS TAPE
OVER AND OVER AND I WILL BE HAVING IT IN THE BACKGROUND WHILE
I WORK. IT IS VERY RELAXING AND JUST MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD. YOU
HAVE SO MUCH WONDERFUL TALENT FOR ALL THE WORLD TO HEAR, I DON'T
KNOW WHY I HAVEN'T HEARD THIS GREAT SOUND BEFORE. BEST WISHES
FOR THE FUTURE.
Cleveland, TX USA -
bought the Red River Crossing at the Country Peddlers' Arts & Craft
Show at the Sam Houston Horse Races Track. Your music caught
my attention and purchased the Red River Crossing CD. It is just
a wonderful CD. I listen to it to and from work. It is very relaxing.
I hope to be buying more soon. Are you coming to the Fort Bend
Country Peddlers Arts and Craft Show sometime in the future in

Arlinton, Tx USA -
Marshall. I just found your website . I can't wait to hear some
of your music. I'm very glad you are doing well. You'd be surprized
to here what I'm doing these days . I'd love to come down and
catch a show. I have missed all of you so much. I miss the days
of setting up and doing the sound for Duke. Love Ya Brother,
Genevan, N.Y. USA -
was a pleasure to see you again at Wildseed Farms where I first
heard you play a few years ago. Your music evokes visions of
Hill Country vistas and much of the other Texana so appreciated
by those of us not born here. I had to give you mention in my
newspaper column this week.
Round Rock, TX USA -
background music for my office. Thanks.
Coppell, TX USA -
is only recently that I was introduced to Marshall's music. Music
that beautifully reflects the "imago dei" in him. Long ago a
young, Hebrew shepherd boy's music had the same impact upon the
king of Israel that Marshall's music has upon me: "And so it
was, whenever the distressing spirit from God was upon Saul,
that David would take his harp and play it with his hands, Then
Saul would become REFRESHED and well, and the distressing spirit
would depart from him (I Samuel 16:23)." God's grace and peace
to you as your journey continues beyond Jericho! Chuck Deveau

La Quinta, Ca USA -
you so much for visiting with me in Fredericksburg last Thursday.
As someone who has played the piano and keyboards for many years,
I can appreciate the amount of time, effort and inspiration that
goes into each piece you write. You have created a truly unique
sound and I am grateful to you for sharing with me a little about
how you create your music. Glad to hear you are working on yet
another new album. Would love to visit your recording studio
Don L. Mabry

for meditation. Please let us know when and where you will be
performing live. Thank you for the wonderful sounds. Rudy:-)
San Antonio, TX USA -
enjoying Fredricksburg, one of the shops there played Mockingbird
station. Needless to say, I had to have a copy of the CD. Meanwhile,
I learned that you have a few more which I will order asap. After
a hard day at work, there is nothing more soothing than listening
to your musick. Thank you.

Will look forward to more of your beautiful music.
Fort Worth, Tx USA -
beautiful, relaxing, and inspirational........I am a licensed

my sessions......my clients love it!!! I will now be adding your
other works to my collection. As a 6th generation Texan, Welcome
to The Great State of Texas! Pam
Lakeway, TX USA -
your music and hope to one day soon also move to the Hill Country
of Texas. I miss the blubonnets!
Gilbert, AZ USA -
introduction to your music came by way of Fredricksberg, TX.
We were visiting friends in San Antonio and made a day trip to
Fredricksberg. Walking down the street I heard your music and
just had to have it. It literally stopped me in my tracks! It
has such a peaceful, stillness quality, but that just makes it
more powerful to me. (Like, "Be still and know that I am God.")
My mother-in-LOVE is living with us - she is 86+ years old and
recovering from some health problems. She loves your music and
I know it brings her into God's presence spiritually when she
listens to it. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts and talents

Feb. 23, 2003 At this moment I am listening to "Red River Crossing" which
I purchased from you personally at the Wildseed Farm several
years ago. I visit each year with a group of seniors and we will
be there again Saturday, April 12th in the early afernoon. You
and your music are featured in my slide show each year to promote
my "Texas Hill Country Tour". Hope to see you the 12th! If you're
there I will introduce myself and purchase "Silent Night". Judy

rochester, ny USA -
first visit to Canton, Texas, and I'm casually walking along
taking in all of the vendor's stations, and, all of a sudden,
I am overcome with the most beautiful music I've ever heard.
It is difficult to describe the feeling that came over me at
that particular moment, but I know it was one of sheer delight,
joy, and a sense of peacefulness. The CD that caught me by surprise
was "Mockingbird Station" and I listen to it every day. It finalizes
the ending of my prayers each night. I thought I was a fan of
Yanni's until I heard this beautiful music. There's no comparison.
Thank you for such a beautiful gift!
Rayville, LA USA -
LOVE your music.I was at The Counrty Pedder Show and I heared
your music and i think it is wonderful. I'am a teacher and I

it. It's every relaxing. KEEP THE GOOD WORK. MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
Corpus Christi, TX USA -
purchased (Jerico) my 1st CD last month in Canton Tx and I have
to tell you I absolutly LOVE IT!!! I play it over & over, I never
get tired of hearing it. So, today a month later I am purchasing
3 other CD's (Trilogy). We are having a Couple's Banquet on Valentines
and resiting our wedding vowels and we will be playing his CD's
during the candle light dinner and the ceremony. Thank you for
making such beautiful music for the world to listen to.

a wonderful releasing of your soul and me to receive the breaking
free of my spirit when I listen to your music...It is calming,

San Antonio, Tx. USA -
first leardned of Marshall when we were in Fredericksburd in
March 1999. He wes playing outside and we waled by but I had
to go back and buy the CD, Red River Crossing. I have worn it
out. It is amazing! Look forward to getting the new CD. GO TECH!
Lubbock, Tx USA -
from an admirer of your wonderful not so far out music. By that
I mean, Marshall's music has been in my pack of CDs when I go
to do Corporate on-site Massage. Thanks to your wife I have recieved
CDs for San Antonio Massage Company where I work and the people
there love it. Your music gets me away (and my clients also)
from the stress of everyday life, but yet keeps me grounded on
the reality of life. Many composers of music add to much far
out sounds that I become disconected to the here and now. Lets
face it, we are here,and it's now. Marshall, I know you've faced
your reality along with your wonderful wife who is at your side
always, and succeeded to break down the walls of Jericho. Way
to go brother!You are real in your music and I feel your heart
in it. I am a musician and love to only write what I experience.
I'm just being real, and from the heart. I bought your CD Recently
at The Wildseed Farm. I've gotten to know John and his wife from
the start of their beautiful place.I was happy to find your CD
there. That was a quick sale. Again thanks for your hard work
and drive to bring calmness to the storms of reality. The Art

absolutely love Mockingbird Station. Am looking forward to listening
to your other CDs
Pleasant Hill, TN USA -
in Fredrickburgs in early Dec. 2002, heard your music walking
by one of the many stores. Stopped me in my tracks. Thanks for
taking the time to speak to us and giving us some background
on your journey in life. Bought one cd then, "Jericho", next
day your daughter sold us "Red River Crossing". Have spent many
hours listening to your music. Really relaxing, especially at
work. Thank you for sharing your gift and talents. Do you ever
come to Houston, TX? Would like to meet you again if so.
Houston, tx USA -
met you and your son while visiting in Texas last summer. I couldn't
resist your beautiful music. I bought the trilogy for myself
and another for my son and family. I also bought the Christmas
CD for my very good friends. My grandchildren go to sleep to
your extraordinarily lovely compositions. How gifted you are
and blessed we are to have found your talent. I look forward
to purchasing more of your work. Keep up the good work! Please
Payson, Az USA -
am a Kindergarten teacher and use your CD's daily in the classrom
as background music.It calms the students and creates a relaxing
environment to work in. We call it our "thinking music!" I also
unwind with it in the evenings as I read. I am anxiously waiting
for another CD to add to my collection. I check out your booth
at Canton every fall.:)
Bryan, Tx USA -
Marshall & Kate,
We were in Fredricksburg in December and purchased the Jerico
and Christmas C.D.'S and as always, we were not disappointed.
My husband and I are massage therapists and your C.D.'s are all
we use and our clients enjoy them as much as we do. We didn't
get to meet you, Marshall, you had gone Christmas shopping, but
we did get to meet and talk with Kate for quite a while. Kate,
I see what an inspiration you are. You are definitely a "people
person". You visited with us like we were old friends. I see
why you and Marshall have such a great influence through this
wonderful music, and Marshall, thank God for coincidence. Stay
well and happy and keep making music!
Lake Jackson, Tx USA -
I believe you were on WCMF with Brother Wease a while back, and
I thought I heard a short discussion of you playing t-shirt league
ball for Buckman's Dairy - probably in '57 and/or '58. I played
on those teams with Ken and Jim Harrington, Mike Cole, Craig
Happ,etc. Curious...I found 2 old team pictures, and I believe
you're there. Yea, I remember the free ice cream cones! My dad
was one of the coaches, and I usually played shortstop. A few
years later, I played bass in a band called the Vacant Lot for
a few years, gigging around Roch. and Buffalo. Was surprised
to hear it was you in Duke Jupiter...somehow, I should have known
that. Do have the "White Knuckle Ride" album, and always appreciated
your vocals - unique! Thought I'd write to say hi and wish you
good luck with your current endeavors. Drop me a line if you
get a chance. Jim LeDuc

emotions you bring froth with your music are quite frankly very
relaxing and positive. We both slept very well tonight listening

recently just returned fron a trip to the south witch I do twice
a year and drove to Salem, Mo from SanAntonia to my grandaughter,s
house and she had your cd's playing. Well for five days that's
all I wanted to hear, so when I got back to Seattle, I looked
up your web site, and I thought I was ordering one copy of your
triology set but as it turned out today I got three set's of
the cd's. Well beside's the cost I thought oh what the hell,
I had already told my daughter of your music plus a friend and
decided to give them both a set of your cd's. Well tonight because
of early xmas gift exchange, I gave them to my friend, while
it was playing in the background, and she was thrilled that I
had ordered her one two. Soooooo I thank you for being so prompt
on the mailing and I am sure it will make me, my family and my
friend so very happy. Thankyou, I love what you do.
seattle, wa USA -
just moved from Texas to Alaska in July 2002. I went to the First
Monday in Canton in May of 2002 and heard your music for the
first time at the booth you had set up there. I bought the 3CD
set there and am now sharing it with new friends in Alaska. I
love the relaxed, dream-like quality and will be ordering more!
Thank you so much for sharing your inspirations so that we can
all enjoy it!
Fairbanks, AK USA -
think a musician hears music differently. We not only hear it,
we feel it. We know when someone's just being mechanical. When
I first heard a little of your Christmas album, I knew you were
the real deal. May your connection grow and express. Thank you.
Dr. J. Albert Schmidt
New Braunfels, TX USA -
have thee of your c.d.'s and will be ordering more today. Really
like your website. Will need these c.d.'s for Xmas gifts. Excellent
Malakoff, TX USA -
heard you playing at Highland Mall 2 years ago...and havent been
able to forget how beuatiful the music was..I waited for Christmas
last year and was so disappointed that you werent there. Am so
happy to have found you again. Thanks and keep up the good work.
Austin, TX USA -
have 3 of your cds and love them. When I listen to them, I feel
a wonderful positive high. Thank you for sharing your beautiful
music with others. I do not have Jericho but will purchase it
soon. Do you play in any of the clubs in Austin? If so, where?
My son lives in Austin and I visit often and would love to hear
your music live. Best wishes to you & yours in 2003
Carrollton, Tx USA -
been wanting to share something with you for over a year now.
i purchased your trilogy last holiday season on main st. in fredericksburg.
my grandson was 4 weeks old when i turned him on to your music.
when he was fussy, i put on mockingbird station. to this day,
he takes his naps with you and goes to bed with you. he moved
away, so i gave his mother the mockingbird station to take with
them. i am torn between red river crossing and mockingbird station.
i gave your cd's as gifts and will give more this year. i see
you have new cd's. i think i know where i can get them here in
fredericksburg. for your passion and your way of grounding me,
i thank you. best wishes and happy holidays. valerie j. phillips

music is an inspiration since I first heard it during Oktoberfest.
I cannot listen to it enough. Please continue to work on more.
Fort Worth, Tx USA -
am so thankful that my daughter talked me into going to Fredericksburg,
TX this past weekend. I would not have had the opportunity to
meet you, a truly wonderful artist, and to hear your beautiful
music. When I close my eyes, my emotions transcend in so many
magnificent spiritual directions. Your music is poetry! I do
hope you will be performing in Austin soon. God Bless. K Kaheny • Austin,

Austin, YX USA -
visiting my brother in Texas last Christmas, he took me shopping
in Fredricksburg, TX. As I passed by one of the stores I heard
the most beautiful music playing. I tried to pass by the store
without stopping because I didn't want to spend any more money
that day, especially on something that I might be disappointed
in once I got it home. But I spoke with your wife (a very sweet
and beautiful lady) who was present that day in Fredricksburg
and I decided to buy your Red River Crossing CD. Well I have
to say that it is the most beautiful sound I think I have ever
heard. As it turned out, I was sorry I didn't buy all 3 CDs that
day. Your music is absolutely beautiful.
Youngstown, OH USA -
simple, heart-felt thank you for making life so beautiful with
Mineral Wells, TX USA -
Some people do not seem to be tuned to the frequency of beautiful
music - it passes them by like a gentle breeze on its way to
a more appreciative recepient. I believe I hear the handiwork
of God in your music just as I see it in the flowers, the mountains
and the trees. As an artist you write music from the things you
feel and experience. Such is a gift from God thatenables the
rest of us to feel and experience things we might otherwise have
missed. Thanks for sharing your gift with us. Bob McClain
Early, TX USA -
think "poetry without words" is quite appropriate for this beautiful
music. It is indeed the most beautiful music I have ever heard.
Thank you. I will be purchasing your CDs. -Sandy
Disputanta, VA USA -
just love your music and listen to it constantly. Would you please
inform me when you have new CD's. Keep it coming.
Hessmer, La. USA -
Just wanted to let you know how beautiful your music is to me
. I have cable soundscapes on twenty four hours a day in my home.
Every time I hear something very special I click to see who created
it. Now it seems more often than not it is you. I also have been
blessed by God with a gift that pours out of my fingers, only
mine is painting for the eyes. Yours is painting for the ears.
When people ask me how I am able to create so many images out
of my mind ,I always explane that it is like composing music.
That when I start to apply color to fabric , something very small
appears on the canvas and suddenly I see a greater picture start
to appear before my eyes. Like the first notes of a melody wanting
to be set free so that it can become whole.Today I will be ordering
all of your albums .I am excited to see where they take me while
I paint. Keep up the wonderful insperation. Visit my web site
Masterslight , youll see we are both driven by the same force.

consider myself an impressionist, in the spirit of the French
impressionist painters - Degas, Monet and Matisse. They worked
with color and emotion and have a powerful elegance that I strive
for in my music." -Marshall Styler I would say you have achieved
this. I hope to learn one day that you will be performing near
Tampa so I may hear in person the music that moves me so deeply
in my solitary moments. Perfection. Truly elegant and deeply
touching. There is a state of quiet transcendence that seems
to flow from your music stimulating an openness of the heart
and soul. Thank you again :-)

was visiting Fredricksburg, TX a few weekends ago with my mom
and sisters (girls weekend away) and heard your music in one
of the stores there. Lucky for me your lovely wife happened to
be in the front selling CD's -- she was so, so friendly. I bought
Red River Crossing, Jericho and your Christmas CD. I know you
hear it all the time, but I have never fallen in love with music
like your CD's. When I am in a funk of a mood, it pulls me right
out. I listen to them all day long. My favorite is Tyler Rose...
I hum it in my sleep!!! Thank you Marshall Styler for your music
from a lucky fan in Slidell, Louisiana.
Slidell, LA USA -
was introduced to your music while at the "Sami Show" in Belton,
TX. I heard it as we came in and wondered what it was, I just
thought it was overhead music and thought, "what a beautiful
sound." Eventually we made it around to the table where your
son was playing the "bluefields" cd. I was immediately taken
with the music. What a beautiful way of expressing peace and
harmony! I'm a single mother of two girls that have fallen in
love with the cd also. Thank you for allowing us the privilege
to hear such music from the heart. I live on a limited budget
but took advantage of your deal and purchased 3 cd's to include
the Christmas one. Again, thank you so much, listening to your
music has blessed my day.
Copperas Cove, TX USA -
wife and I were introduced to your beautiful music while being
waited on by Mr. Bill Butler of Castle View in Camden, Maine.
I will be ordering all of your CD's...it's just the kind of instrumentals
I enjoy and seek. Thanks! Scott
Fairmont, MN USA -
Delighted I had the chance to say hello last Saturday in Fredricksburg..
Your music inspires.... relaxes .... soothes .... and, warms
the body, mind, and spirit.... several years ago I listened to
you perform at Collin Creek Mall in Plano.... I have purchased,
and cherish all your CD's.... I listen to them at home, at the
office, and on my many journeys throughout the country .....
Thank you for sharing your passion and emotion, and allowing
us all to enjoy and savor your musical gifts !! Bob McConaughy
Austin, Tx USA -
cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed Red River Crossing. I
listen to it every day upon awakening. I get up, light a candle,
put on your music, stretch and meditate. I also have Mockingbird
Station and Blue Fields, but Red River Crossing is my absolute
favorite. I have not found a CD that I enjoy more, that will
relax me and take me to places of deep thought. Thank you so
much for your inspiration and your music. I have used your music
to get me through some of the toughest times of my life, when
I was dealing with a lot of fear. Now that I have learned to
meditate and place my life in the hands of my higher power, while
listening to your music, I don¼t experience that paralyzing fear.
I am now a public speaker, speaking about overcoming fear. In
my upcoming speeches I will tell my audience about you and perhaps
even demonstrate sitting quietly while listening to calming music
and meditating; and I will use your music. I will purchase a
few more copies and even hope to sell some for you. I am most
moved by Ingram Canyon, Coming Rain. My two other favorites are
the first and last songs on the album; Red River Crossing and
Summer Night, Port Isabel Light. I normally would not take the
time to write like this, as I am so busy, but it was something
I felt that I needed to do. Maybe you need to know what a tremendous
impact your music has made on my life. I hope that someday I
will have the opportunity to meet you. Maybe sometime when you
are traveling north on I-35 and passing through Waco, you will
email me. I would love to treat you and your wife to lunch or
dinner. With sincerest appreciation and many, many thanks for
sharing your great talent! Carla
Waco, TX USA -
had the pleasure of meeting the artist in Fredericksburg last
November over the Thanksgiving holidays. I purchased the trilogy
plus the Christmas CD. Listen to them daily. Now I've added Jericho
to my collection. I live in an area in Texas where the countryside
leaves much to be desired. When I play one of the CD's from the
collection I feel I'm in the heart of the hill country. Thank
YOU! Vickie White
