Getting a call from Robert to record a new CD was always a good day The freedom to be yourself and the atmosphere that was created always allowed the players to bring their best. I’m very proud of the work I did and still listen to the CDs. Sometimes Gabrielle was there, sometimes she wasn’t -- physically. Regardless, she was always there.

Rocky Bryant (Percussion)

It has been my sincere pleasure since the first meeting, to share in the creative journey of the music of Gabrielle Roth and the Mirrors. Having also had the experience of performing live with both Gabrielle Roth and Robert Ansell has enhanced my recording input in that I'm able to more clearly see the way Gabrielle connects the sounds of music with the movements of life.
