Benton, I am listening to IndieHeaven Radio and finding your song Fury of Love to stand out for its crafted lyrics, thank you!

Mr. Stokes,

First of all, the piano in "Better Than I Ought to Be" is too cool and the song has a hip almost Billy Joel feel, too. I love it! Billy Joel is a great artist and I like him, too. You also have a great voice and a wise grip on which notes you choose to sing when you sing lyrics. I can't really explain it, but it makes each song kind of grab the person and make them wanna keep listening. Great stuff!

Hey, Kevin - it's Brandon Banks from McGavock H.S. Class of '88. Just listened to your latest project and it is FANTASTIC! Beautiful lyrics, singable melodies, and rich instrumentation all in one! I'm out in Phoenix, AZ and serving as a Detective for the Tempe Police Department. I've been out here for 10 years and absolutely love it. I'll look for your CD here in the Valley but, in the meantime, feel free to hit me up at bkbanks70@hotmail.com . Take care and, again, GREAT MUSIC!

Amazing depth, great melodies, classically BKS in expressing nothing but truth. I love what I am hearing and am so anxious to hear more! Who says one must stand from a pulpit to "preach and teach?" Keep the blog coming, too. Love you!!!
