From Corrine Smith, Independent Reviewer: "Seven Songs in Seven Days" offers not just good storytelling, but also a few peeks into the creative process of songwriting. By writing and thinking about our parents' pasts, we can better understand the paths we choose for ourselves. This book and CD package should be of interest to those intrigued by personal memoirs, by the father-daughter relationship, by the mystique of the Arkansas migrants of the Great Depression, and by the gumption it takes to craft a melody with lyrics out of thin air.

Singer-songwriter, Jane Fallon, is a veteran performer whose smooth, rich voice and well-written songs get noticed. With vocals that have been called "angelic" and "mesmerizing" by Boston's Metronome magazine, her original songs "combine humor, intelligence, and deep musicality with an artfulness that is unusual." (Wildy's Word Music blog). Her newest CD "Gemini Rising", co-produced with Jim Henry (Mary Chapin Carpenter and Tracy Grammer) has been called by Rambles.net "a collection of songs that stitches itself together note by note and warms the soul." Bill Copelands says she is "beautiful, honest, and powerful." The CD has received considerable airplay around the globe since its release.
