James Robinson (Guitar Virtuoso & Composer), USA


“A masterpiece record. A beautiful and unusual sound! It's an ingenious album for the road that draws people in deeply... The melancholy in the September Soul song is a journey to the distant memories of an abandoned city.”
Erdal Akkaya (Baglama Virtuoso & Composer), Germany
