Thanks for the welcome message . . . not terribly different I suspect. I have just listened to your tunes. Good stuff . . . I like the shadow song. I suspect we all spend too much time there

this is the first time I ever visited your site! You've got some great songs. I'm not a blues person, because most of the blues singers don't have good voices, but I REALLY like your stuff. Your voice sounds good, too and nice harmonies on "backslidin on Bourbon Street! VERY GOOD STUFF. Keep up the great work.

Lisa Fenstermacher says:

Hi Joe,
Thank you for welcoming me to IndieHeaven. Love your song "Backslidin on Bourbon Street." Reminiscent vocally to Bob Weir. Great voice! Great vibe! I liked your quotes. Alot of truth.
