CHRIS TRAPPER (THE PUSH STARS) November 4th, 2012
Testimonial from Chris Trapper: "I must admit, I was moved by my night at Candlelit. What started as what I projected as a routine gig for me ended up being uniquely personal, and emotional. I'm not sure whether it was the fact that the muse's photo is staring down at you, or just the reality of the challenges of Epilepsy, but either way, I was swept away in the moment.
In a concrete way, I actually learned a lot about Epilepsy while having a great time in the process.

YOUNG DUBLINERS September 23rd, 2012
Testimonial from Keith Roberts - Young Dubliners: "This was by far the most fulfilling show we did all summer. Such an amazing cause and such a love filled house to perform in. I can honestly say we all cried a little but we also felt really good and thankful that Eric included us in something so special. Wish we could have met Carolina in person but she is so present in the house I almost felt like I did. Do this show, for the cause and for yourself."

VAL EMMICH September 8th, 2012
Testimonial from Val Emmich: "I've only had one firsthand encounter with epilepsy in my life but it was enough. I'll never forget the sheer terror I felt as I watched a kid endure what looked like an incredibly violent seizure. If I felt that way just watching, I couldn't imagine how he felt. After I started promoting my upcoming appearance at the Candlelight Concert, people started coming out of the woodwork. I never realized how many people I knew who were affected by epilepsy. It made me proud to be a part of such a good cause. What made me feel even better was getting a chance to help out Eric, the founder of Candlelight. His personal story touched me. He couldn't have been more warm and hospitable as he invited me into his home. His living room setup is as intimate as it gets and the online webcast ensures that the music and the message reaches even further. I've always believed that music harnesses a tremendous healing power and I believe it even more after my experience at Candlelight."

MEG HUTCHINSON August 18th, 2012
Testimonial from Meg Hutchinson: "I am deeply inspired by what Eric has done in creating the successful Candlelight Concert series for Epilepsy awareness. There is perhaps nothing more moving than someone transforming their grief and loss into something positive and healing in the world. I was amazed to discover how little I actually knew about epilepsy and how prevalent and sometimes deadly it can be. I think his efforts at educating and spreading awareness will change lives. This is a wonderful cause."

SHARON LITTLE August 11th, 2012
Testimonial from Sharon Little: "August 11th 2012 started off really funny… my guitarist, Tim and I showed up a little early to a house somewhere in Pennington NJ, and no one was there. We were thinking, uh, like are we at the right place? What if we weren't? That would be weird!?!?!? We only waited a few minutes until our hero of the night showed up, Eric Miller. He made us feel very comfy right away! He even gave us a dressing room.
The event's cause is a very familiar one to me. During my teen years up until 2005, I experienced multiple seizures. I haven't had any since, but I felt like I was meant to meet and share my heart with eric and his friends and family. The overall experience was very emotional and warm; my heart goes out to Eric and his beautiful wife Carolina! Thank you Eric for reaching out and making people aware of such an important and under-recognized cause!"

FREEDY JOHNSTON August 4th, 2012
Testimonial from Freedy Johnston: "It was a magical night, there in the living room. I hope the Candlelight Concerts go on and on, and sometimes spill out into your kitchen and even the hallway, so that the spririt of Carolina can keep reaching out to the world! Thank you for having us in your home, and thank you for your work raising epilepsy awareness."

ARI HEST July 22nd, 2012
Testimonial from Ari Hest: "It was an honor to play the Candlelight Concert for Epilepsy Awareness. Aside from the fact that I played to an attentive, spirited audience, the performance was for a great cause, one which actually hits home for me and my family, I'm so glad to have been a part of the series!"

DAN REED July 12th, 2012
Testimonial from Dan Reed: "Mr. Miller has created a true sacred ground in his living room and in his heart, honoring not only the loving memory of Carolina Miller, but also shedding light on a disorder that is all too often overlooked or not spoken about openly. Performing in his home was a true joy, and a most heartwarming experience, and would welcome returning in the future with much excitement! To have a house concert with so much purpose and intention is the true reason to perform music, and there is no better reason than turning darkness in to light, which is exactly what Eric has done with these events. Thank you, sir, for being a guide and inspiration to all you touch."

FRANCIS DUNNERY June 23rd, 2012
Testimonial from Francis Dunnery: "Eric Miller is a very nice man who uses his personal home-space to help artists set up House Concerts. From the second I arrived until the moment I walked out of the door Eric was extremely professional and respectful. I had a fantastic night. The atmosphere was relaxed and his guests were superb. I will definitely be going back to Eric's place at some point in the future because this is the sort of performance space that artists thrive on. Thank you to Eric and everyone else involved, I had an absolute blast and cannot wait to do it again!"

JOHN WESLEY HARDING June 9th, 2012
Testimonial from John Wesley Harding: "Epilepsy is something that I happen to have a personal experience of because a friend of mine died in the bath after he left university. A guy who was quite influential in some of my early writing choices - he was about a year older than me. So when the email came through about this gig, it seems like a great thing to do. I love the idea that someone in Australia could just go online and pay five Australian dollars and hear me play. I mean, if I was a fan of me, I'd do it." (from NJTV State Of The Arts segment)

JANN KLOSE May 19th, 2012
Testimonial from Jann Klose: "Playing Candlelight Concert for Epilepsy Awareness was a true pleasure for me and my trio. I'm already looking forward to doing it again. My band and I were treated so well which makes for a great experience all around. Eric understands that making musicians feel comfortable and welcome results in better performances and a higher turnout at shows. The cause itself is unique in that there isn't enough attention being brought to it. Eric Miller is changing that with this growing house concert series that is also viewable online."

Testimonial from Jeffrey Gaines: "Candlelight Concerts have been extraordinary concert events to be a part of - get on board and support such an amazing cause. Thanks to Eric Miller for inviting me to participate."
