    1. Hi Craig – I heard the demos you posted. Great stuff. Would love to hear more about them. Email below.

  2. I’ve heard of her but never had the pleasure of seeing her perform. “Fairytale Of New York” just knocked me out of my chair, and now I have a whole bunch of listening to do; all I can say is “WoW”.

  3. Hello Kirsty. I forgot to leave my name and email. I sent a comment about your song “they don’t know” being the most btiful melody and lyrical content than any song I have ever heard. the best song I have ever heard!
