'Songs sung blue…in that noble line stretching all the way back to Leonard Cohen…the honesty and quality of his music is more uplifting than a million shiny, happy pop bands'.
Hot Press, Ireland
'Wonderfully Wistful Songwriter-Pop From The Berlin-based Irish Musician KIERAN McMAHON. All in all, one of the most beautiful albums in the passionate singer/songwriter pop genre this year.
'At the point where poetic songwriting, indie folk and catchy acoustic pop meet, Kieran McMahon sounds like a cool hybrid of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen'.
Marcus Baumann, Rundschau Regensburg
'Complex snapshots and poetic lyrics set to a beautiful musical background giving expression to the melancholy experienced by someone eternally searching – a perfect hybrid of Tim Hardin and Ron Sexsmith. A real gem'.
Huub Thomassen, realrootscafe.com
'Authentic, powerful, self-confident and exceptionally good. Highly recommended!'
Markus Hillbom, www.musiklivet.com
'..a mature, melodious pop album that fits perfectly into the grey season and follows the tradition of the great melancholy songwriters such as Nick Drake, Scott Walker or the Tindersticks - beautiful, heart-rending songs'.
