“Intricate, finely crafted and sensitive to life's mutability, the songs are performed with understated passion and tenderness.” - Keith Stimpson

“[Paul is] not only a very delicate and refined guitar stylist but also a genuine poet.   [There is a] perfect harmony between the music and the lyrics.” - Jean-Marie Pouchain

“You might think that, having written the songs and made demos of them, rehearsed them and laid down the basic tracks, this album would be familiar territory for me.   But, thanks to Günter Pauler's arrangements, it's something of a magical mystery tour for me – and, I hope, for you too.   Günter always finds a new unexpected angle that I'd never have thought of.   I'm feeling very lucky to be able to bring you this latest album in the company of such a troupe of fine musicians, produced with his usual finesse by Grammy® nominee, Günter Pauler.   Thanks to them all, from the bottom of my heart."
