“Melodic and peaceful, this rich and yet simple collection from Victor Towle, Colorado Zen could come very easily under the somewhat old fashioned and yet always acceptable, ‘chicken soup for the soul’ category. Colorado Zen it would seem has been released at a time when balm for the very soul of the world is in dire need.”

“It was such a treat to have Victor play guitar during a recent yoga session celebrating the autumn equinox. His expert playing transitioned so seamlessly to match the spirit and pace of the class that you almost forgot he was there, playing for 75 minutes nonstop. Only afterwards do you realize how impressive it was for him to be able to blend into the background, yet be such a presence with his music. It was definitely a memorable practice!”
“Victor is an intuitive and thoughtful acoustic guitar player. The pieces he created and performed during my yoga classes were beautifully integrated into the poses and pace of the practice. His music, focus, and passion all came together so eloquently. He is very talented and heartfelt.”
