In the Friday, July 7, 2006 issue of The
Gainesville Sun, our album, "Distant Garden" made Dave Schlenker's
Top 5 Weekly Must List. He said, "Teen singer Sarah Hoffman powers this
Gainesville band through a well-produced, solid set of mostly originals. But,
the best download is a rockin' chick cover of Cheap Trick's Surrender."
Mr. Schlenker is an entertainment writer for the Sun and his list appeared on
the front page of the Weekend section. We thank everyone for his or her support.
You can buy our MP3 tracks from
Rhapsody, or just about anywhere that
