- CarlBaugher, Cadence Magazine

"This shit will literally take your easy chair for a roller-coaster ride."

"...the open space provides a wide arena to discover the color and mood of Holzborn's misshapen punctuation-..."
- Christopher R Weingarten, CMJ
Bill Horist - Lyric/Suite

- François Couture, All Music Guide

"A drum may still be a drum, but with Nathan Hubbard, it sounds surprisingly fresh."
- Tobias Fischer, Tokafi
Santiago Latorre - Órbita
"A mix of elegant jazz and gentle electronica..."

Jason Robinson - Tandem
"Robinson's special gift is an emotional intensity that keeps things at the boiling point."
