Raves: "He may not be a star, but professionalism
is something that Jeff Callery is already graced with." by Steve James, a writer for
Limestone Live who did a cover story on Jeff. "These guys are GREAT!" by Barbara
Cloyd (writer of Lorrie Morgan hit, "I Guess You Had To Be There) during open mic
night at the Bluebird Cafe. "I love those guys." by Liz Hengber, songwriter for
Reba McEntire's "For My Broken Heart", "It's Your Call" and
"I stay very busy creating web pages and filling
requests to host artists, so I don't often ASK for more work but I enjoyed Jeff's music so
much, I wanted to help gain more recognition for him." By ME!!! After you hear
"If I Let Myself" you'll understand. This is a ballad well worth the price of an
entire album. Another great composition, "Love Is All You Need" has the
influence of Crosby, Stills and Nash which you'll recognize in the harmony. Great tune,
great song and great voices make for one great recording.
