Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Master improviser Connie Crothers notes Charlie Rauh as "a true musician with an originality that is deeply personal"; virtuoso composer/guitarist Susan Alcorn describes his musicianship as "a rare combination of discipline, attention to detail, and impeccable taste." "The 6 songs that make up my debut solo effort were written as dedications... following the murder of one of my closest friends in late 2012... I began writing songs in an attempt to cope with this sudden and violent loss." - Rauh "... this record was a beautiful thing to do, and in having done so the listener is reminded that loss itself is not senseless, it is our attempting to deny it's inevitability that makes it so." - Valerie Kuehne (TheSuperCoda music Blog)
