...fantastic!!!!!!!... Quite a work of art!! -Vi

Love the arrangement and production! -Rob

I loved this piece... loved it! Loved the story the music the drama and the surprise... great, great work! -Victor

Who Are You?... is an amazing healing song that you wrote from your heart. One we all should sing to ourselves. What a gift you have given all of us. -Dee

...courageous‎! I can see lots of single hits with this material... terrific writer. -Talbot

I found myself wanting to listen to it over and over again. There's the music that's catchy, the words that are profound, and the singing that expresses so much depth of feeling. The CD is rich. I hope others can discover it. -Dee

I love the sound... beautiful arrangement... incredibly deep real words. -Larry

I'm in awe of the sound and the artwork. Shrinks all across the country should be playing it in their waiting rooms. -Greg

We live our lives in Quiet Desperation
Beneath those smiles there’s constant consternation

- Gig Sykes

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
- George Santayana

And here I sit so patiently, waiting to find out what price you have to pay to get out of going through all these things twice
- Bob Dylan

Psychotherapy kept the best of me
Let the rest of me fade away.

- Gig Sykes

Face history courageously, for when you face the truth
The truth will set you free

- Gig Sykes

This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man.
- William Shakespeare

No man is an island entire of itself...
- John Donne

Know thyself, let go thyself, then show thyself and grow thyself
- Gig Sykes
