”This is my brother! It’s a beautiful, beautiful album, like Pink Floyd meets Ryan Adams.”

The Mighty Diamonds, ”When the Right Time Come (I Need a Roof)”

”I’ve been getting really into reggae. It’s great, not too sort of druggy-political and very mellow, but things never get too repetitive.”

Lucinda Williams, Essence

”I always go back to her. She’s one of the best singer-songwriters in America — just brilliant. And such a great voice.”

Cat Power, ”Metal Heart”

”A lot of other Cat Power songs resonate with me, but this one particularly… It’s definitely a song I fell in love to.”

INXS, ”Don’t Change”

”It reminds me of growing up, of summers when I was a kid. It makes me nostalgic.”
