“I had such a great time and I think the song I wrote on that weekend will work for a recording,…a classy bunch of people and a privilege to be associated with John D. Lamb. After Lamb’s Retreat I always think the same thing: boy, I so needed that.”

Michael Smith 

“I found Lamb’s Retreat to be a beautiful setting and welcoming community of writers, who took on John’s uniquely individualized song assignments with impressive results.”
