"Supreme songwriter, guitarist and keyboardist Bob Hausler is a great story teller, collaborator, instigator as well as a promoter of other fine independent songwriters. Friend to all he meets, there isn't a good song that escapes his fine ear. Humor is his forte, but tearjerkers follow close behind. He always offers a heartfelt performance of his own fine songs or covers." - Trish Lewis - Wucx-Fm Eclectic Chair
