Nick Bollinger, The Sampler

"All of the Above delivers a potent hit of unusually ambitious pop music at a time when this is precisely what the doctor ordered. "

Grant Smithies, Sunday Star Times

"Gently psychedelic soul-pop with compelling hints of prog. This guy's clearly a real craftsman, not just your average singer-songwriter. "
