Review of Dessert Sunrise / Ish:
"Dynamic, melodic, and original"
This sounds like a soundtrack for a movie set in the Mediterranean. Excellent, professional, production, and world class muscianship. I felt like I went on a trip somewhere exotic."
Review of Tierra de los Suenos:
Delicious acoustic flamenco styled guitars. Relaxing vacation mood. Very exotic and beautiful. This is one of the best acoustic guitar tracks I have come across. Sign me up as a fan!
