Critics have written:
“Linguistically simply but incredibly deep lyrics & a musical experiment full of unexpected twists”
“Views of love are so lyrically vulnerable and jaded. A perfect St. Valentine’s Day jolt”
“Jersey singer-songsmith performs brooding folk-rock with hints of Dylan and downtown punk.”
