"Not too long ago my husband and I had a chance to listen to Potter & Clay on repeat as we road-tripped our way through the twisting mountain pass between Vernon and Vancouver. I don't know if we could have had a more perfect soundtrack. Jaylene's poetic, honest, winsome documentation of her own winding journey seemed to intersect perfectly with our own. There's just so much truth-telling packed into the lyrics, melodies, vocals and arrangements here, I can't imagine these 12 songs won't be good companions on your journey, too.
You must get this album. Road trip optional, but highly recommended." Carolyn Arends
"By the time the first chorus of the opening song played I said to myself ‘Oh my - this is seriously good!’...The album has just the right amount of push and pull with tempo shifts, mood changes, with solid musicianship warming the centre and serving these 12 stellar songs. ‘Let The Silence Speak’ moved me to tears..." Brian Doerksen
"I want to commend Jaylene Johnson’s new project, Potter & Clay, to you. Jaylene is a veteran musician and songwriter with several album projects to her credit already, but I think this particular project will be a defining moment in her career. Sonically it’s gorgeous, the performance and production elegant, and the songwriting exquisite. It is a moving piece of work that deserves a wide hearing." Steve Bell
"Every single note and every single word in this cd is magnificent! Love the songs, love the singing, love the production- and love the John Bailey mixes. Kudos to Jaylene and her creative team- this is a stunning album- some of her best work!" Amy Sky
"What happens when a pro songwriter converges at the point of faith, suffering and truth-telling? Potter & Clay is what happens. Jaylene has heartbreakingly and beautifully outdone herself at the meeting place of craftsmanship and the human journey." Alana Levandoski
