"Singer, Jane Gabrielle, has a deep, throaty, stunning voice --- a sensual mixture of Grace Slick and Janis Joplin sprinkled with a bit of
southern grace."

2003 #1 Female Vocalist."

"Album Network Review"

"...Clayton Ellers lets his freak flag fly and speaks what's on his mind whether you like it or not...Musically, he is in the Prine camp...Lyrically he's in the Guthrie ballpark....Ellers' roots (are) dug in deep."

Feeling a bit camera shy


" So, What kind of music is it that you play? ", The Pilgrim asked innocently enough. " What kind of band is BORDER RIDE? "

" In the Collective Opinion of the band, BORDER RIDE is most probably an Acoustic Rock Band ", The Gypsy replied through the thin haze of smoke. " But these are only probabilities, and musical genre terms have been bandied about until they are meaningless ", he added quietly.

" So I should probably listen and decide for myself. " The Pilgrim offered almost as a question.

" Is that not the fate of The Pilgrim, to Travel, to Search, to Discover. " The Gypsy smiled knowing that he wore no watch.

As if in response to his thought, The Pilgrim leaned closer, begging , " And yet you know The Time. "

" Yes, " The Gypsy whispered like a knife, " Let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late. "

" It's almost 4:20." The Pilgrim responded.

" No, my friend ", The Gypsy laughed like a waterfall, " It's always 4:20. "
