“The early morning (after the long night) that we finished “Walking On Sunshine” was one of the greatest experiences of my professional career. I’ll always remember doing the final edits on the 2 track, and all of us knowing we had something that was really special. Congratulations to Kimberly and the band on the song’s anniversary. It’s a classic.”

“Kimberley Rew is where pop and archaeology meet: the six-string
guardian of old England, rocking the neolithic pathways just as the
glaciers did before him. I can’t remember a time before Kimberley, and
I dread a world without him. Monster!”
