"Emotions. That is what I feel as I listen to your music. Much like rain falling on the keys of my soul as it sits and listens to its joyful, somewhat somber tune. Wonderful work Michael! You bless all ears that hear the body of your work.
With love for music,
and thanks for giving your gift to people such as I." Daniel Batten
