    Jon Luc Ponty was my favorite violinist until I heard you. Driving in my car and listening to my music is my escape – it’s my freedom. I listen to your music over and over and over. Your talent is beyond description, and it brings so much joy into my life when I listen to you. I have all your songs in my Napster playlist. I can’t think of a single bad song, which is unheard of for any artist. When I heard “Forbidden Love” it brought tears to my eyes. Such a beautiful composition. Unfortunately, I was unable to find it to purchase it. All I ask are two things: 1) Please come to Detroit, and 2) please make “Forbidden Love” downloadable or for sale. My love to you! You are a wonderful musician.
