 Just Be’Cause. Here is a sampling of what some reviewers had to say:
Cyndi Craven captures the essence of love, admiring, observing, yet basking in the feeling. In the song 'Dreaming' she defines the surrealistic imagery of dreaming, and friendship. And the most important lesson of all, in her song 'Lessons', that of interdependence. Beautiful. And I am her student.” 
—Martin L. Taylor, iTunes Reviews
  They are known individually as Jerry, Bruce and Cyndi but they are known together as:

"As a multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer, Bruce Gilbert is a seasoned professional who never met a style of music he couldn’t bring a little something extra to. His songs are filled with happily unexpected musical twists and range from poignant, elegant love (and lost love) songs to the cool sophistication of a hipster out on the town in a new pork pie hat. No matter what the style, Gilbert connects with listeners through beautiful melodies and sincere vocals that make you believe every word he sings. He’s a jazzer with the heart of a poet."
