“A warm blend of spare, classically influenced pieces with just enough pop sensibility to make them shimmers in its minimalist strokes.” —Arkansas Democrat Gazette

“Very cool music...I love this piano etude I’m listening to as I write this....I’m reminded of bits of [Steve] Reich, [Philip] Glass, Sigur Ros, Cocteau Twins and Radiohead, intertwined with an aching longing and lots of integrity.” Vernon Reid, Living Colour
