What TAXI (music review service) has to say about 9 Feet Tall song, "Butterfly"
"...the language of the song is emotionally charged, the structure is
well written and cohesive... This song beats with the heart of a classic
I found your music to be uplifting and peaceful. You have a beautiful
voice that touches me with a sense of serenity. A few of my favorite
songs are Blue Sky, Make Believe and Adam's Song.

Kathy, ever since discovering your work, your music has been a
favorite of our family. I've got four kids ages 7-14, and they love it
as much as I do. I was looking for the CD today and couldn't find it -
until my wife reminded me it was already in the CD player. It is a hit
in the Gibson family - wonderful music! Thanks so much.

The first time I listened to “Worn Out Shoe” I was convinced at the
end of each song that ‘it’ was my favorite. The words in the songs just
grab you, and you wonder how Kathy knew to write them. I even bought a
second CD for my Mom because I knew she would enjoy it as much as I do.
After listening as often as I have, I would have to say that if I had to
pick 1 favorite song, it would be ‘No Strings Attached’ with ‘Slow Down
for Love’ as a close second. When I first heard ‘Kath & 9 Feet Tall’
sing I was not only impressed but in awe. Kathy is my cousin and I could
never be prouder of a person for being so determined and in love with
the Lord. “Worn Out Shoe” is a true testament to Kath & 9 Feet Tall and
their love of our Father. God bless all of you and keep the music
“Worn out Shoe” is a mix of gentle melodies and lyrics that feed my
soul. I can sit and enjoy the music while I work, or really listen to
the words and think about what the message means for me. I also
recommend hearing the band live…they make a good cup of coffee even

My husband and I had the privilege of getting to know the Anderson
family before this CD was recorded. Kathy and Dan spent time with our
youth group helping them to learn how to lead worship, not perform
music. They taught the teens by example as they lifted each song up to
the Lord in praise and thanksgiving. We knew that their CD would also be
an act of worship and it truly is. Kathy is a gifted writer who is able
to capture your heart with thought-provoking lyrics that will speak to
you where you are in your life experiences. The Lord is glorified in
their music as well as in their concerts.

This music is very calming. I tend to listen to the beat and not
always the words, so I pulled out the lyrics and was reading while the
CD was playing. The words are really from the heart. It seems like each
song has a story. Very touching. Enjoy!

I would have to say I like the 9/11 song the best (Blue Sky). I think
it is nice because it is such an upbeat song. It goes against the norm.
It makes you think that everyone on that day went to a much better
place. The whole album is easy to listen to and easy to sing along with.
It puts you in a good mood.

Worn Out Shoe is a great CD for people who like meaningful lyrics and
good music. There is a beautiful sincerity and wonderful realness to the
album. One of my favorite songs is "Blue Sky" because its lyrics are
poignant and heart-breaking, but hopeful and full of faith at the same
time. 9 Feet Tall's first CD is a great example of the band's original
works. I can't wait for their next CD!
Kristin, North Brunswick, NJ
"Worn Out Shoe" is a great CD. The music is great and the lyrics
really lift my spirit up every time I listen to it. As a 9 Feet Tall fan
who has moved away it helps me feel like you are right there every time
I listen to it. I can't wait for you to come out with your next CD. I
miss you guys and wish you all God's blessing every time you perform.

Worn Out Shoe points to the truths that the God of the universe is
for us and not against us; His love for His creation is unconditional;
and He longs to know and be known intimately, which leads me to ponder
His great love and draw closer.
Faith Clark, Long Branch, NJ
One of the most touching songs for me is God is on Your Side...this
song reminds us of the truth that He's on our side. He's fighting for
us. He loves us and lets things come into our lives that are painful, to
prune us to better glorify Him. Thank you for your ministry of song...
A servant of the Lord, striving to live for His glory,
After receiving the CD "Worn out Shoe" I gave a listen to it. Most of
the time when I listen to a CD whether worldly or inspired by God I
would put it down and say it was nice, but after listening to "Worn Out
Shoe" I found myself picking it up time after time. I firmly believe
that it is anointed by the Holy Spirit. Each musician has put their
complete self into the making of this CD. I was blessed by it and I hope
and pray that you will too.

...I wanted to thank you guys so much for playing at Wilson's. You guys
displayed a musical depth and (you in particular) spoke with a sincere integrity
that is often missing from the ranks of Christian musicians.
Wilson's Books, Princeton, NJ
Again, I can't tell you how grateful I am for you guys last night. There was
still a buzz this morning about it and the student body, and professors kept
saying how we really need to do things like this more often...
The music was wonderful. Your voice got some great reviews. One person said,
"you just didn't think that rich of a voice would come out of that tiny
Overall though, as ministers you guys rocked the house...

We book many acts here at the Refuge Coffeehouse, but only a select few get
invited back for repeat performances. The band 9 Feet tall is one such band who
we will have back time after time. They are not only talented musicians, they
also have a strong ministry, a giving spirit, and a joyful attitude. Any event
would be blessed to have 9 Feet Tall perform at their venue.
Refuge Coffeehouse, Bridgewater, NJ
9 Feet Tall performed at a Coffeehouse we held to raise awareness for the
Leukemia & Lymphoma society. Since the Coffeehouse was a benefit for an illness
which impacts a variety of people, it attracted people from various cultures and
ages. The original music and lyrics of 9 Feet Tall united this diverse group of
people for over two hours. Many of the attendees were interested in purchasing a
CD. We would definitely ask 9 Feet Tall to perform another concert.
