    I love your albums. It is not only your wonderful voice but the tasteful parsing of words and rhythms that make your music such a pleasure. I discovered your albums because I am a fan of Martin Taylor. To find that you are also an engineer, a lawyer, a teacher, and parliamentary candidate is amazing.
