Praise for Dust & Tears:

‘So intimate, so vulnerable, so ecstatic, so sad, so romantic, so edgy, so historical, so new, so now, so timeless, so emotionally and musically complex— I think this is Jai’s BEST album.”
—Sharon Gannon, Jivamukti Yoga founder, activist, writer, dancer, painter, musician and chef.  

“I love ‘Dust & Tears’ — the lyrics, Jai’s voice, the arrangements, the heart, the feelings.”
— Anne Lamott, bestselling author
