"Although I've known Jamie Kindleyside for several years, it is only after listening to this collection of songs that I feel I've really begun to KNOW him. The writing here is sharp, spare, and honest, and it includes one of my favorites, the powerful "Cinnamon & Sage", which paints an incredibly clear portrait of big corporate sins against the earth and her people. You have to hear this and pass it on, along with all the others in this fine collection of work" Kevin Welch (liner notes)

"A very talented singer/songwriter. He has played everywhere from dives, to the street, to festivals, and often at The Bluebird Cafe'. No matter the venue, the crowds relate to him...He is a poet, a blues man, a folkie and a nice guy." Amy Kurland, owner of The Bluebird Cafe' in Nashville TN

"A charismatic performer with a smoky voice and lean, well-crafted songs" - Sing Out! Magazine
