Knechtel decided for this CD that he wanted to work one-on-one with musicians he had seen and admired at various folk festivals including Walt Maynard, Wendell Ferguson, Paul Mills, Tom Leighton, James Gordon Ian Tamblyn and David Woodhead.
Working with so many different styles of musicians gave each of the 12 songs a feel of their own yet together add up to a winning Canadian Folk combination.
-Lori Ross, Sound Waves
This is a warm, funny, thoughtful CD filled with songs that celebrate absolutely simple things in life.
-Claudia Staines, Mosaic
The Walkerton-based singer/songwriter is a clever wordsmith without drawing attention to his craft, Similarly, his voice and musicianship (guitar, piano, keyboards, bass and harmonica) are no less effective for being warm, informal and understated.
-Robert Reid, K-W Record
