" . . . a vocalist and arranger who seems as assured of his playful strengths as David Byrne in his prime. You can actually hear fun happening all over this disc . . . a rough-house bitch slap on chugging indie pop." - Chris Estey, Three Imaginary Girls.
". . . stands out . . . his self-released debut album captures a freewheeling, lo-fi eccentricity that may remind some of pre-Geffen Beck or a more hyper, unpredictable Folk Implosion. Everything is slightly off, and to that I say, 'Right on.' "- Dave Segal, The Stranger, Seattle.
" . . . infuriatingly frictionless sound." - My Old Kentucky Blog
"If Napoleon Dynamite hadn't danced to Jamiroquai, he would have danced to this." - Tizzy Asher, Seattle Post
