A few excerpts from reviews on

"Eclectic... tuneful... "Kelly's Dream in the Rain"... "Always Coming Home"... I play both of these pieces, and others from this CD, on a radio program in Alaska. "Always Coming Home" is a particular favorite of listeners... "
—Guardian of the Zen Sea

"I was pulling into my driveway late one night when this album began playing on a late-night new age show on the radio. I was immediately entranced and ended up listening to the album in its entirety, right there in my car, sitting in the driveway. I found it on Amazon and ordered my own copy, and since it has grown to be one of my favorite albums."
—Timothy G. McCoy

"A truly original voice soars into the heavens...a breath of sweet fire. Kingfisher is that one in a million artist whose musical signature and style are completely unique. Absolutely mesmerizing..."
—"A Customer"
