I love the east coast. I feel like it's a little secret that no one gets. Have to say that Kim Stockwood would not be my first choice. Haven't been to Newfoundland YET. Have been to Nova Scotia & Cape Breton 2X, PEI 1X, amazing, there is just so much to see and feel I could never get enough of the east coast. Have to say it's the first time I have seen Seamus O'Regan as a person. He seems very personable and down to earth.....kinda like the east coast.....

I can't believe how much negativity is here. It's so sad. I watched the episode of "Back To The Water" and thought it was absolutely fantastic. I was bursting with pride the whole time. It was shot really well and made Newfoundland look absolutely gorgeous. Kim does a great job on all the songs she covers, her voice is very unique and I loved all the different takes she has on NL favorites. I know there are many people away from home who could really appreciate her take on things. I hope the compliments start to drown out the negativity here shortly.

Before I get attacked for not jumping for joy over Kim's new CD I will say that there is no greater fan of Newfoundland music and Newfoundland performers. I heard several songs on the CD and have to say that I don't like it; for some reason she just doesn't have the vocal strength to pull it off. Last weekend while listening to a local station, they interviewed Kim and played a coulpe of selections; it was the first time I can ever remember turning off St. John's Waltz. I think she is butchering the songs and only using this as a quick cash grab from home to help sustain her in TO. Again, sorry if I didn't like it and please don't tar and feather me for it.

Mike, your ignorancy is showing. Did you get what I meant or are you just a critic. You and Jeffo should get together. To Kim: there are alot of critics in this world which shows what type of person they really are. Spelling is not a big issue for me like cutting someone down like Mike and Jeffo are doing. Get a life!!!!!!!

Kim, I understand how you feel. I have been describe by many as being like a buoy on a lobster trap. The trap being Newfoundland and Labrador. I never want to cut the long rope attached to the lobster trap that prevents me from drifting away from my roots. Frank Blackwood Newfoundland Writer

Hey JEFFO.... When is your CD being released. I'm looking forward to hearing it. Those who can......... do...... Those who can't........ are jealous of those who can.

Jeffo, I am sorry, but you are very rude!!! Kim is good at what she does but trying to make it in that business is tuff in Canada. I really enjoy hearing her voice and also "Shaye". Kim and Shaye are not getting the exposer they deserve. Keep going, Kim, you are doing great!!!!! A Fan!!!

Brenda, I assume you mean exposure, not "exposer". I'll give you a pass on "tuff" but try tough next time.

Sounds like "Back to the Water" is a desperate attempt to revive a career that's dead in the water.

i agree with jeffo. and you have be pretty desperate if you have to rely on an old ron hynes peice of dribble to try and sell cds. I once saw hynes on tv where he said there is only 1 bob dylan and only 1 ron hynes. glad to know there is only 1 ron hynes .
