"No one exemplifies the socially aware musician better than Steve and Kristi Nebel. Steve and Kristi do a truly wonderful job of combining searing social concern about war and peace with a delightful spirit of love and happiness. Kristi . . . sings with a hauntingly beautiful voice which is at once ethereal and earthy." Geoff Bard, Victory Review

    Comments From Home and Abroad

    "This was a joint presentation of love, peace and freedom with nature, in their own music encapsulated in the title of their latest CD offering ‘Bohemian Outback’. Steve's thoughtful guitar and flowing, lyrical style, matched by crystal clear vocalizing and gentle electric bass playing from Kristi prove a compelling musical vehicle for transporting the listener along with them on their journey from Tacoma, Washington State.

    “Beautiful stuff ! But somehow it's also something more. I was reminded of Paxton's exuberance, and songs reflecting so vividly the country he comes from; the heartfelt concerns and perceptions of nature in ‘The Crow’, and a sense of how humanity "treats" itself, and it's privileged lease holding on this planet in ‘Harbor Island’ . There was Paxtonesque fun-poking in ‘Superman's Dilemma’, and Steve`s perceptive ‘Lillian`s World’ was for me his strongest writing. Kristi's wonderful voice was most powerfully in evidence in ‘On Fishermen’, written along with Steve."

    “. . . there's something in each of you that has the ability to connect beyond the words and music. You are a gift...that I am so grateful to receive.” Linda Frank

    “. . . Good work, the music the lyrics and poetry. By making your music - it's melody rhythms words more - you help, in my humble opinion, to make the world a little bit better place. Thank you – for that - and for being the people you are. Bless your hearts, and best wishes. Ahoj ! Roy [Douglas]”
