“Jim Page is a lyrical genius with a guitar. This man personifies the word ‘free-flow.’ Page takes to the mic and the song invents itself on the spot; his talent is a natural wonder.” - Rob Bleetstein, Gavin
“Jim’s been writing great topical songs for as long as I can remember, bringing his acute wit and wry humor to a host of subjects that can really use both. In the tradition of Woody and Dylan, he cuts right to the heart with music you actually enjoy listening to. I’m a longtime admirer.”
- Bonnie Raitt
“More reminiscent of the Woody Guthrie I heard as a boy than anyone I’ve listened to in the intervening years” - Philip Elwood, San Francisco Examiner
About Patricia Sennott:
“A transformation can occur while carefully observing nature. This transformation has driven me to draw, paint and print for many years. Working on portraying the elegant lines found in flowers and trees or translating complicated patterns of light and shadow: this practice continues to lure and to nurture me. By transformation I refer to the calm which can cut through the chaos of daily life.
Observing a bird, whether away in the mountains or in the intimacy of my garden can feel like a miracle! They symbolize transcendence and great mysteries to me.”
