“Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Cali Rose, has produced a delightful and eclectic brew of fun, playfulness, intelligence and wit. Her piano and guitar playing is also excellent and she is joined by many talented musicians on this CD. She may be goofy, but she sure is good!”

“Well I said I L O V E  your website and I do and I also applaud your one-woman-do-it-all approach, going to the care homes and connecting with your CDs and upbeat attitude, so very important, as you said, in these challenging of all times.  Looking forward to your CD receipt and connecting more as I’m always drawn to the under-dogs of this world, those who exhibit grit.”

I want to say “Thank You” for your “zoom” classes.  Your instruction is perfect..  Even though the Monday class is supposed to be for the “beginner”, it contains information that everyone can use.

Thank you Thank you Thank you!

Loved yesterday. You answered so many questions I had, and filled in a lot of blanks, that helped me understand way better what we’re covering…

Did I say Thank You?

Loved the documentary, and You, Miss lovely singer, player, entertainer! I hope it inspires others to sing for those who think they’re forgotten. You’ve woken my inner musician, inspired my progress and are responsible for a lotta lonely folks letting music into their hearts and lives.

LYRICAL PHILOSOPHY (The “Cali Rose Gets Goofy” CD)

  1. Thirteen songs about personal love, real emotions, and true life experiences.
  2. Clever, down-to-earth uniquely original lyrics combined with perfect common sense feelings and sentiments.
  3. Exceptionally worded and sung with pleasing rhythms and tempo – quality music performed by great musicians and a gifted singer.
  4. But it’s the authentic, clear and entertaining voice that pulls everything together to bring empathy and understanding to so many common experiences that so many can relate to.
  5. A truly great uplifting and fun experience for the listener.
  6. Light hearted but packed with true and meaningful everyday thoughts and expressions.
  7. The whole CD is very well arranged and composed with especially enjoyable and authentic lyrics which exhibit extraordinary insights into ordinary life.
  8. Such a talented singer, song writer and philosophical humorist that brings a smile to the face and warms the heart.

Cali, thank you so much for your tutorial.  It was FANTASTIC!  It helped me out so much.  It showed me how to combine all the techniques into a song along with the melody line.  What a great teacher you are!!  And you wrote a beautiful song.
