"The richness of Wish's compositions is a blessing to the ears. His music's message of peace and harmony reach the heart; his words carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. “ As a whole, the album is pensive, introspective, and intensely personal. It is a musical meditation, a prayer for peace. In his own quiet, small way, Evan Wish has created a legacy of hope and value.” CD OF THE WEEK (The Netherlands)
“ In its own way Forget-Me-Not, Blue is a passionate plea from the composer and musician Evan Wish for universal peace and love.” ” It’s hard to pick favorites on an album where every song is exquisitely crafted and displays a level of instrumental virtuosity as well as masterful composition and arrangement.”
" While peaceful ambassadors of our past have arrived to us in the form of an ideological leader, an advocate for the poor and a nonviolent civil rights crusade of another, the beautiful Solo Piano and strings instrumental expressions from the heart of Evan Wish constitute a gallant and notable gesture too, arriving in a truly inspiring manner sure to be embraced by all.”
“ Taken as a whole, it is music of the dreamers and the peacemakers that never should be forgotten. Forget-Me-Not-Blue seems just right for the occasion. “ "Wow!.”
