We bought Pictures some years ago. The music has an ageless quality to it. My 16 year old daughter still chooses it – to relax & go to sleep by. Thank you for sharing your gift with us all!

Neal, I just received your “First Love” CD . It is awesome ! I ordered “Up North” when I returned from a bicycle trip …”Michigan Shoreline West” 400 miles later….. I can relax with your CD. I want you to know I have been a Jim Brickman fan for years. I have many of his CD’s and have seen him in concert a few times. I have to say, from the bottom of my heart, you are so equal to him if not better ! Do you ever perform live ? Thank you for sharing your gift.

Neal’s CD, Up North, captures the attention – and hearts – of my customers. Neal’s relaxing, charming music works its magic in my little shop…I constantly reorder to keep up with sales.

We had some friends over the other day and they asked if we were playing any Christmas music yet so we put on your “Snow Angels” CD for them to hear. They were very taken with the delicacy and spirituality of the playing. It is a wonderful, quiet, contemplative injection into what can become a frenetic season!

Your music is fabulous! It has Soul and Spirit!

Congratulations on the new Christmas album – I can’t wait to hear it! I have great admiration for your talent and even more for your ability to make things happen. Many people have ideas and dreams but few possess the tenacity and courage to realize their dreams. I am proud to know you!

Neal is not only a wonderful musician, but he is also a great person. I first discovered Neal’s music at the store I work at {Davlins}. He has been very giving with his time and energy. One of the best wedding gifts we received was the gift of music from Neal. He even wrote a special song just for us. Thanks Neal for all of the beautiful music you have given us.
