"Review of "Shirts vs Skins" track on Digital Side of the Moon CD."

CeyJay...breaks some rules to interesting effect... is interesting and eerie enough to have the listener hanging on every word. - Providence Phoenix

"Customer reviews of "Bittersweet Morsels" CD on amazon.com"

DP Olson (Washington, DC) -
Two things greatly missing from music today are lyrics that tell you some kind of story (somebody got paid to write "Bye Bye Bye" over and over?) AND hooks that aren't gimicks repeated ad nauseum with deadening effect. This fresh release has both. I've found myself driving down the street and little bits and pieces of his songs will pop into my head and I find myself WANTING to hear the entire song again. As for the lyrics, they are open enough that I think everyone will have that 'I can totally relate b/c XYZ happened to me' feeling even if their interpretation is not the 'story behind the music.' This is one of those CDs that if you take the chance, you'll be really surprised.

"ucipalo" (Long Beach, CA United States) -
CeyJay's CD is a great work. The songs grab a hold of you and stay with you. I find myself humming and singing to them throughout my day even when i do not listen to it. I carry a copy in my car at all times and on my IPOD as well. He is a real talent and will go very far in the industry. Definately get in on this from the ground floor. His voice is so amazing and his talent on the piano is soothing. Definately worth your money. Original and refreshing! - amazon.com

"Bands Reviews"

Heard about this kid once, looked on his website, Gave it a listen, and I think he's really good. Not the greatest fan of the mellow music, but flows well, a little progressive. Very unique. I don't hear music like this much. He deserves some complements for his music. - bostonbands.com
