Enjoying your holiday disc again and again on our ride to church in the seasonal fog. Miss the band people and Jenn who is Phoenix. I’m singing several days a week in EPCOT Candlelight Processional. Happy New Year and Merry Holidays! Alan and Melanie Howard
Justin, It's impressive what you've done with your life. Back in High School, I always knew you would have a life full of music and happiness. It's great to see.
I saw your post on FB, so I thought I'd check it out. I enjoyed this year's selection and the previous ones too! I'm a particular fan of the Dar Williams song, and I liked your take on Baby it's cold outside, which is considered politically incorrect these days, but I always interpreted it differently, and I read a whole analysis this year by someone who did too. Anyway, Merry Christmas, and I'll look forward to more music in 2018...
Great Job! That album by Joni is one of my favorites! Merry Christmas !
Lovely! You sound great Courtney - have a very happy birthday. See you soon. Love, Jenny
Wow, what pipes! Just lovely. And the family pictures are so sweet :)
What a unique and beautifully performed collection of songs. Thank you!
Thank you for a lovely song! Merry Christmas!
So cool!
Amazing!!! Beautiful vocals and music!!
I loved it! That is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I loved your voice Courtney... Is there anything you can't do?? I loved Justin's piano playing as well so melodic. It was just the right piece to get me in the Christmas spirit. Thank you.
Very pretty! Thank you for sharing!!! Merry christmas!!! This made my day!!!
Lovely song thank you for sharing.
Happy Holidays! Love your song !!!
Courtney/Justin, loved it. This is one of my favorite songs. xoxo
Great song
Hi all! I just loved your song! Courtney, I hope you can visit my chorus, you have a beautiful voice; Lily was adorable, and great playing, Justin!
Nice job! Loved the contributions by Lily. Courtney, you sound great. Happy holidays!
Wonderful music. Thanks for telling us about this site.
Hi, I just discovered Justin on Satellite Radio--"Mashed or Baked" stopped me dead in my tracks! Went running for my smart phone and Shazam app when I heard it, but my digital luck ran out when I tried to find sheet music for the piece online. Would love to buy it, if it's available in print or digital download -- please advise! I'm also really excited to see that Justin's a local artist (I live in Easton, Pa.) Here's hoping we'll get to see him perform live in the lovely Lehigh Valley soon!
Looking forward to having you perform for our First Friday in April at The Dovetail Artisans.
Wonderful! Thanks....... XXXX
What a sweet treat! Thanks!
Listened to the Christmas Album three times. What a joy it is! Kudos to Justin, Courtney & Lily. The more you hear it, the better it gets. All I can say is Merry, Merry Christmas!
I just heard some advance tracks of Justin's new Christmas album, and I can't wait to hear the entire album. If rough cuts sound this good, the fully mixed album will knock your socks off.
Like my mom said, better late than never... A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys! You're getting Lily ready for American Idol, right?
Better late than never! Thanks for sharing... I hope you all had a wonderful holiday :-)
Thank you for sharing something so precious. It made me smile.

Love your Christmas song! Thanks for sharing - but even better is Lily's photo. I am sure the holiday was so much fun with her. Both girls were home for the holidays here in Tucson so that was terrific for us! Hope 2012 is a great year for you three.

Dear Justin, Courtney and Lily, Hi, day after Christmas, and this email has all the holiday spirit captured. I loved the artistic visual as well. Keep up the family singing and the trombone. Happy New Year. Love, Reba
Hello, Justin and Courtney, You are terrific and should think about putting all your Christmas songs on a CD. Just got your new CD from your mom. Best of luck with everything. Merry Christmas! Joe & Roseann

Really enjoyed the music. Thank you. Merry Christmas.
Most Excellent. Thanks! Have a restful and peaceful Christmas.
It never feels like the holidays until I hear the Gable/Solonynka winter collaboration. LOVE you three making music together! Thank you for this beautiful and special gift. <3
I did not know that I was living next to so much talent! I'm truly impressed with your music! Your neighbor, Mirjam
Sylvia quoted "Even You" this morning, and because I was straining to remember the rest of the lyrics, I was compelled to look you up. I live on the other side of the country now, in the South Bay, but I can hear you singing in my head as clearly as if you were in the other room. Congratulations on having a new musician in the family! I miss you.
A star is born! Lily is beautiful and how exciting to be recording as a family. Thank you for sharing. All the best in 2011. Joanne
Happy Holidays! What a beautiful baby Lily is! Lots of love, John

That was lovely and I'm sending it to my neighbor who is a composer and pianist. Thank you. all you need is to buy Lily a dog who can bark in tune.
Great to hear your music again. Our wish is for you and your family to enjoy a blessed Christmas and many years of joy together. We are enjoying our four grandchildren so much - especially at this special time of year. Thanks for keeping us up to date. Rollie and Laurie
Wonderful! Thanks so much. I love Lily's contribution, too.
Beautiful! Perfect! Love to you all.

Sounds so good! I'm looking forward to hearing three-part harmonies.

Great, thanks for posting this. Lily did a wonderful job.
What a great recording....thanks for sharing...Lily did a great job! Liz and Bruce
Lovely. Lily has a wonderful voice and we expect great things from her in the future (no pressure). Of course her parents are quite talented as well. Happy Holidays to you!
Love that you transformed Marianna Neil's poem Clarita into a song. We'll be telling our email list and will add your website in our newest newsletter. Well done!
Hi Justin, just wanted to say how much we look forward to having you perform at our house concert. All our friends and family are looking to meeting you and Courtney and enjoying your music. Sandi and Bill
Forgive me for this tardy comment, Justin, but I must congratulate you and Courtney for this wonderful gift of music. Such beautiful close harmonizing on the Lightfoot number, and geez, Justin, trombone, trumpet AND keyboards? I'm envious! In any case, your warmth (and smarts!) radiate out of every note! Thank you!
It only took us four months to listen to your Christmas music. It brought big smiles to our faces, as your music always does. And a wonderful treat to hear Courtney singing too! Don't think we ever had heard her warble before. Love Fern and Tom
Hi Justin and Courtney! Happy New Year! It took us forever to respond, but we enjoyed your musical card. Thanks for sending it. We hope things are going well for you. Sylvia, Sean, Carl and Elinore

OK, so I'm a 'little' slow! It's 2009 and I'm just now hearing our 2008 song. We loved the song. I'm updating our brand new iMac and came across the song in our address book. It was a wonderful Christmas 2009 diversion. Karlene & John
Hi Justin. Kecia McMillian played "The Diviner" at a recent worship service and I was completely smitten. Just beautiful. I'm going on iTunes to purchase it now. Keep up the great music. Love your site too!

Beautiful setting for a photo. John and I moved to Princeton and are involved with the dance community down here but we are not that far from Bethlehem! Take care and Happy New Year. Barbara Vadnais
Hi Justin and Courtney! I just now checked out the Christmas gift hyperlink, and wow, what a nice duet! I really enjoyed it. I love the whimsical nature of your songs. You and Courtney and the members of Acoustic Blender have such great pitch and music sense. Keep inspiring and blending!

Hi Justin - I used to hear you play in church at the UUCLV years ago - was glad to see you'll be back in town for First Night. I'll try to stop by to hear you tomorrow night! Leslie
Sensational! "Baby..." is a joy, as rewritten, and performed... and the carols heard anew are delightful and surprising, really soar.
Courtney, I've yet to meet Justin but you make lovely music together. Thank you for the melodic gift -- it warmed my heart. It was wonderful.
Thanx for sharing your talents! Wow what fun. love, the ritz family

Hi Courtney, I believe I met you guys at the Bucks County Coffee House last year Great Duo and Great Duet be-well be-happy just-BE!
Nice touch! and Courtney can sing! Justin - was King Wenceslas your arrangement? Is that a pennywhistle or recorder on Jesu, or was that sound generated by an electronic organ?
Hey you two --- loved the song, it sounds odd to say this, but I could so SEE you singing it. We really should get together soon! ~AmyBeth
This is soooo cool! Courtney, since I have never heard you sing I was just speechless when I heard you. You are Great! Justin, I won't leave you behind, what a gift you have. Love Ya

Justin, I've always loved your albums (Playground, Bull in a China Shop, Better View). "Not me, not you" seems to be my unwavering favorite. I find solace in it... especially whenever I doubt my own creative endeavors. It's so beautifully ironic... It is *you* I'm listening to; it is *you* I'm reading there; it is *you* I'm loving. From the first day I met you, as a substitute teacher for our biology lab, when we mischievously discovered a way to boil our egg in a jam cap, I always admired your view of things and the way in which you handled them. Keep it real!
Hi Justin, Great stuff! Nice site!
Like the web site. Hope all is well.
We certainly enjoyed hearing the quartet on Friday evening in Doylestown. And I especially enjoyed listening to you. So now I can say I've witnessed your musical growth at three stages of your life. I listened to your "Sounds" today. You're so versatile, I had no idea. My husband (who's not a musician, but has a good ear) really liked "Zzyzx Road." It reminds me of some of the pieces Don Muro wrote for recorder and synthesizer. He provided the synth. recording, and the children provided the recorder music. He worked for "Korg" back in the day, and introduced the idea of the "music workstation". I don't know whether he's still around, he'd be an old man (about Joe, Sr. and my age by now) REALLY OLD. "Follow The River" is my favorite. I was a big fan of Paul Halley, piano, and Eugene Friesen, cello, from the Paul Winter Consort. They recorded an album together,"New Friend," twenty years ago now, but the combination of piano and cello is brilliant. Like you, Paul supported himself for awhile by being the organist and choir master at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in Manhattan. I don't play anymore. I have a tremor that ended my playing. It was a bitter blow, but I've come to accept and realize that in music as in everything else, it's time to give it over to a new generation. If you are any indication, we've passed on the tools that were given us, and you've charged ahead to create wonderful new sounds. I'm looking forward to hearing you again. Thanks for playing. Mimi Mauro
Justin, you look familiar. Did you by any chance, play the piano at the Lehigh Valley UU in Bethlehem during the late 90's? And did you attend Council Rock HS? If the answer is yes to the first, I've met you. If it's the second - I first saw you when you were in Jr. High playing with the Jr. High jazz band in competition. Joe's Uncle Lou,(my ex) was the director of Upper Moreland's Jr. High jazz band. If it's both - then I've been a witness to both your skill and musicianship at two stages of your life. And if the answer is "no" to both - I can't figure out why both your name and face are familiar. In any case, Joe invited us to come see you in Doylestown on the 26th. Looking forward to it!!
