Pure summer shimmer…
—Vicki Peterson, The Bangles

…the golden mean between Paul McCartney and Elton John…

The opening twin salvos of the exuberant “Summer’s Coming” and the majestic harmonic dream “In And Out Of Love” are perfect power pop gems that capture your mind and heart with effortless ease…

If Beck and Brendan Benson had a child… it might sound as wonderful as this!

What a wonderful, catchy slice of melodic pop this is!
—Alan Haber, Pure Pop Radio

Like a mix of Elton John and John Mayer, he storms out of the gate… Some great melodic tracks include “Your Gravity” and the ballad, “Lullaby.”
