In a Rushing Stream
'Fantastic songs, good musicians, and most of all, a brilliant voice.' Dirk Stursberg, Radio 98.6, Berlin, Germany 'I received your album this morning and just finished listening to it all in one shot. You did a great job on the album (as opposed to a few songs and filler.) It comes across as very successfully done as a whole. I'll air this next Saturday night on my station and probably play cuts 1-4 the first week. I want the listeners to hear the ideas and feelings as you planned them on the album. It feels good. Let me know when your next one is released.' Jack 'Sandman' Garrison, WFIT FM, Melbourne, FLA Be sure to check out Jayme's latest CD, Sugar & Sand.
