January 15, 2007


I just read your story about your childhood boxing event.

Seems to me that your nickname, Paul WINDMILL Killington seems appropriate.


Seriously though my friend, ya, the moral of the story is in fact, that, you did try !!!!

And, that is what we are all trying to do these days. No matter what, under the adversity of the big guys, we stand our ground, and try to make an effort to educate those that may not know of our plight into many serious avenues of concern.

For my money, I wil always look up to you and your great talent for guidance in those moments that I feel a need to find some inspiration and continue trying !!!!

Way to go Paul, you may have not won the fight, but, you are most certainly helping to win the war !!!!

Keep up the good work that you and Maria are doing through your music !!!!

We will prevail, and never give up, nor surrender !!!!

Now Paul, put 'em up !!!!!

I just want to thank you and the remarkable people of the U.K., who have extended the long arm of love across an ocean to help the animals of domestic violence victims, in one of our nations poorest areas. Regardless of what the media would have you think. As they spend money on bombs, people are starving here in the United States. No additional funding for our program is available under the current administration and funds for programs like ours are now dedicated to war. Thank you, (Maria and Paul,) on behalf of the animals and human victims, of domestic violence in Tennessee.
Howard (Zeke) Loftin and the ani-mules!

Hello Maria and Paul,
I was just listening to "Deeper Than We Know" is so hauntingly beautiful, as is all of your work. I love what you do, your passion to make a difference, and the way you act on it rather than just wishing you could. I sincerely hope the auction of the painting "Where Dreams Go To Die", along with your signed cd, go very far in helping Road Home Rescue for animals. Love to you all, Lynn

Maria thank you for this great music/creation. May it go down in history as the song for the horses. The President declared a day of the horse official and I want see YOUR music sentto the White house as the song for the horse! Lets give it the sound
that makes the declaration what it should be.

Thank You.


August 10, 2006

Dear Maria and Paul,

I just want to say thank you for all that you are doing to help make this planet safer for us all !!!!

Your continued committment to aiding the animals of the world is to be commended at the highest levels of respect any and all of us can muster !!!!

As some would say, the way in which humanity treats animals is a direct reflection of how humans treat each other.

If one cares, and shows compassion towards our animal friends, then the resonance of that positive energy can do no harm !!!!!

With the advent of releasing your forthcoming album, Music United For Animals, I feel that perhaps, the more people that are made aware of the reasons you both wrote the songs, then possibly more of us will learn that it is of paramount importance that we treat all living entities with the utmost of respect.

Your continued efforts to strive for bringing about awareness of these issues, and other important issues shall always be a glimmer of hope that education can continue to enlighten each of us. And, in return cause more people to be aware of our surroundings and potentially bring about a change in attitude for the positive !!!!

Once you have released your album, Music United For Animals, I hope to feature one song per week on my radio show to help spread the word, and in return, I hope to also bring about awareness in people through your careing and compassionate music.

Maria and Paul, yes, it's true, we do have a voice, and, we can use it !!!!

Keep up the great work you are both doing !!!!!

Take care, and, best regards,


Mickey Grasso

I can't believe how long it has taken me to drop a note here. The power of the music by Maria and Paul has been a part of my strength for a couple of years now. I could not imagine anyone not falling in love with her voice and the emotion that she shares through thier music. If you only have room in your shelves for one artist ... it should be Maria Daines

Shelby Staples

August 5, 2006

Beautiful song. I am working hard for the passage of HR 503 to stop any slaughter or OUR American horses. This song has inspired me even more, as it will any who hear it. Thank you so very much for it. God bless you and God help our horses through the work of all of us!

Hi, We are foster parents for dogs, cats, and for any other animal that needs a place to rest until a forever loving home is found. The song is awesome. You have a Beautiful voice!! I look forward to hearing more of your music. We speak for those who do not have a voice. Blessings~~Janelle~Chicago

I´m a really fan of Maria Daines, since I came on her homepage...And the first song, I heard from her was "I am the owner of this coat". It made me cry...and I decided to something against all the hurting, that human do to animals. But where to begin??? Everywhere around the is so much of it...Everyone can only do something small - but together it will be a great thing!
Maria Daines: THANK YOU!!!


July 15, 2006

Thank you Maria for the beautiful song about Mercy. I live in Dallas, Tx. I am going down to OK tomorrow to get a micro chip for my dog,LeLe.

Carol Douglas

June 23, 2006

Maria, Paul, this is simply awesome news today.
To have Willie Nelson listen to your song AND send you an email !!
I can truly see why though.
Your song for the horses "I wanna run free" is an absolutely stunning little masterpiece! .... and to have Beth on too is just the biz!!
Love the syncapated bit around 4 mins, then the gospel
sound....this is outstanding,
and all for a great cause as well.
You've sure made your mark here yet again, and the
CD cover is superb as well.
Much love as usual, and well done to you both.

June 6, 2006

My heart breaks while listening to your latest song dedicated to the dogs who are forced to fight and die for human greed - what a low and selfish human would subject any animal to such a living hell....this is happening everywhere - dogs fifhting for human greed - if you know it - suspect it then REPORT IT !

Maria & Paul,

I Don't Wanna Fight No More brought tears to my eyes like others of your incredible songs! I really think you could have a very successful album of just animal rights songs! I wish we didn't have to live in a world where such awful cruelty goes on and on and is thought of as a good thing to do by our fellow "humans" and it makes me feel about as like them as an alien being would be! Songs like yours help change things for the better for all the innocent animals so badly betrayed by humans.

Barbara & Mike

June 4, 2006

Maria & Paul you never cease to amaze us with the quality of your music. I Don't Wanna Fight No More is just so moving and gets right to the heart of a very serious subject.

Thank you for all you do for our poor misteated animal friends and thank you for all the pleasure your music brings.

I really like your songs about animals and their plights, especially the song dedicated to the pit bull pup, Mercy. I noticed you only have the album "Treebone" for sale on your site. When will you be making a CD compiling your animal songs - I REALLY WANT TO BUY IT! Your music really puts into words all my feelings and I love the sound of your voice, it reminds me of Ann Wilson from "Heart". Please let me know when you plan on puting the animal songs on disc and releasing it for sale so that I may purchase it. I can listen to it on my computer, but can't take it with me anywere. Thank you so much for sharing your gift of music!
