A few months back, I was going through chemo. Every day when I was done, I ran on the treadmill to keep my mind off of my life. When I first heard your music, I thought it was an angel coming to take me to heaven. But then I realized that life was worth living and then the cancer left. I am truly blessed to have you in my life Aldo. Keep making music- the more you write, the more inspiration will spread throughout the world- which is something we all need in these trying times

I ordered your CD and we’ve been playing it at work (we’re nurses in an oncology center) We play music for relaxation for patients getting chemo. Dr. Hunger, Michelle (my nurse friend who is learning to play guitar and sings) and I love your CD. My favorite song is Endless Tide. We want to hear more of your music….are you planning another CD. Let me know, okay?

My name is Debbie McCafferty. When I wrote to you initially I was using Michelle Nelson's email (inadvertently) at work...she is my co-worker. We were happy you responded. We are nurses and give chemo in an oncology office.
I ordered your Close to You CD from Boston Pete. Michelle and I fell in love with it. We play it all the time for our patients (and ourselves) probably making our fellow nurses crazy. We both say we could listen to it over and over. It's so relaxing and beautiful.....I especially love Close to You and Endless Tides.
Many of our patients have trouble sleeping at night. When they come to the office for their two to three-hour treatments this is their chance to sleep and take a break from their anxieties, their sad thoughts, and take a break from their equally anxious loved ones. They so need some "time to themselves" to gather their thoughts, regenerate, and re-energize. Your music helps them and the nurses who care for them. Keep up the good work....looking forward to your next CD!
peace and love,
I HAVE NEVER HEARD YOUR MUSIC UNTIL THIS EVENING, I WAS ON THE TREADMILL AND WHEN IT CAME ON, I FELT LIKE I WAS IN EUROPE! I LIVE IN OHIO! WELL, TO PUT IT SIMPLY, BEAUTIFUL........ I'M GOING TO ORDER YOUR CD.

YOUR MUSIC HAS A DISTINCT SOUND, NOT ONLY BEAUTIFUL, IT IS ALSO UNIQUE. UNLIKE ANYTHING I'VE HEARD. I RARELY BUY MUSIC, BUT I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED LISTENING TO IT WHILE I WAS WALKING ON THE TREADMILL! WHEN "THE DANCE" PLAYED, I SCRAMBLED OFF OF THE TREADMILL AND WROTE DOWN THE TITLE OF THAT CD, THAT SONG CAPTIVATED ME, I WISH YOU MUCH SUCCESS!
THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE ALDO
Hello, My name is Richard Stovall. I am from Atlanta Georgia, in the USA. I first came across your music on mp3unsigned.com. I must say that I think you make some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard. I don't know where you're from, but in Atlanta that kind of music is kind of hard to come by. It's so good to hear an artist who really does do his music just to share something beautiful with the world. You truly do have something beautiful to share with the world Aldo, your talents are extraordinary! I really like the song "Dance" you did. If you ever saw the movie Desperado with Antonio Banderes, it really reminded me of that (hope you take that as a compliment).
I am a musician myself, while the music we make sounds alot different, we share the same essence of intention behind our composition. I do mostly abstract ambient works on my computer using Propellerheads Reason and a few other recording programs. Your music is truly inspirational to an artist such as myself. To see a man of such humility gain such success through what he loves, it is a beautiful thing. Aldo, I feel your musical career is just at it's beginning. You will be successful if you keep your humility.
Thank you for blessing us with your music, and God bless...
Hello. Just want to say your music is so beautiful! Do any touring? I am in Pittsburgh, PA in the USA and would love to hear you live. I purchased your CD from Smilingear.com yesterday and cannot wait to get it. I downloaded "Reborn" from MSN.com and just want to listen to it over and over. Thank you for sharing your beautiful music with us all. You are sure to make an impact on the world. I work in a busy psychiatric ER and it is so relaxing to listen to you play while I work and after work it helps me to unwind. I am sharing your music with all I work with. I noticed from your website that you are from the Philly area. Do you ever have concerts there? Take care and keep up the precious work you do.
You are doing great. Keep the music coming.
Some of my favorite guitarist include Phil Keaggy, Joe Satriani, and Steve Vai.
I had to remove one of them from my CD changer when I heard your music.
Please keep it coming.
PS: I studied classical guitar 10 years ago in college but did not stay with it. I’m encouraged and inspired listening to you play. Thank you.
How are you doing, I talked with you about a year ago after I purchased your album and I thought it was fantastic, you said you were coming out with another album is it coming very soon?
I want to share an interesting tidbit with you, I am 43 years old and I was one of those people who would pick up a guitar and get frustrated real easy and put the guitar down and never play with it again.
This past month my son wanted to learn how to play guitar I was thrilled, because I feel everyone should learn an instrument it is soothing.
Well at that time he asked he is (14) I pulled out your CD and played it for him and told him to listen to the guitar work he said this is an awesome CD and he wanted me to loan him the CD so he could listen to it.
It was at this moment while we were listening to your music that I decided to really put the effort into learning to play, I was listening to you play and I said to myself I wish I could play like that.
So it has been 2 weeks and I have been at it now everyday and I am not letting up
Thanks to you.
Seems a bit familiar but no matter. I was shopping for my wife last evening and while in our local Coldwater Creek ladies apparel store I heard this wonderful classical guitar music. I asked the ladie who was working with me what it was and she tracked it down to a CD that was produced by NuAmbience Media for Coldwater Creek. There are 10 songs on the CD of which 3 are yours: /*Close To You, Endless Tide*/ (my favorite) and /*The Dance*/. What find! I was not familiar with your work until now. I will certainly seek out your cd's from now on. Is /*Close To You*/ your most recent CD? I look forward to listening to more of your music.

After I heard your new song 'Hidden Paradise' I was left in awe. This song is different in style compared to your whole album 'Close To You'. Even though the solo acoustic guitar was missed little it was replaced with another wonderful idea. The ocean wave intro was a nice addiction due to the next fact to the next part, the Piano synthesize, it made that part a whole lot less expected. And that is why this song is so good you just were not expecting the music to have that and drums. This song is really a band backing up a Classical guitar player. I have never heard something like that before which in any case it is still lovely to hear. The band sets up the guitar, in so many ways I just can not explain them. Other than that the band and the Synth is really harsh to a certain level like it is not meant to be there yet it fits so well and feels so right, (very contradicting) it actually feels like it belongs. This song is so strong and so soft at the same time, and it actually live to its name. It gives the feeling of finding that hidden place your little hidden paradise. You ( and I am guessing others); really have done other beautiful work would have not expected any thing less, yet the contrary I actually expect very greater music.
