“Zane’s unique music and production creativity is shown off here in this song’s gorgeous instrumental intro, middle and outro riffs, and in its pretty melodic verses that are enhanced by Zane’s sweet vocal tones in his interpretation of Bogi Taylor’s Breezy lyrics” – Zola (Music Producer)
“My favorite part of the whole song is how you switched the rhythm from ternary to binary beat to embody the lyrics’ summons to ‘get up out of your chair…” It is so cool. I literally felt edgy where I was sitting before I even could hear the exact lyrics or knew what you were doing rhythmically. Then I went back to figure out how you did that. In the whole song you manage to melodically and harmonically subtly convey the longing and the imperative to take a risk. ” – Martha Rogers (Music Education Professional)
“Absolutely beautiful. The lyrics and the melody melded so perfectly and what a beautiful message reminded me of a Disney song in the best sense. A Positive inspirational song loved it!!!” – Elaine Mata Jones (Composer/Performing Artist)
“Kuchera drives the song ever onward with unresolved chords which show that letting the breeze in is good for a stagnant, stubborn soul. “ – Bonnie MacLeod (Pianist/Composer/Cabaret Artist)
