The best kept secret in music


"1340 Magazine"

"It seems with little exertion he has created something other artists tirelessly chase. Doobinin’s sound is littered with notable influences from Simon and Garfunkel to Neil Young. One Station Away reminds me of David Dondero or something that might come from Joseph Arthur or Bright Eyes if they had more of a pop influence. Doobinin is often compared to Elliot Smith for the folk like story telling he incorporates into his work...the connection is valid."- Trevor Dye - 1340 Magazine

"Left Hip magazine"

"Doobinin's lyrics are poignant and often sad...I found myself humming the tunes hours after listening... this album captured me on an intellectual level unlike most popular music." - Left Hip magazine

"Houston Press"

"One Station Away is a collection of haunting tracks, as dark as Elliott Smith and as political and lyrically driven as Neil Young." - Houston Press

"Stylus Magazine"

Dave Doobinin knows what he wants—and it’s got nothing to do with money. The former front man of NYC’s Skywriter is much more interested in making you feel. Though not quite as narrative-minded as Sleep Station’s David Debiak, Doobinin pours out tales of woe like red wine. Against producer/contributor Billy White’s sparse, sophisticated musical tapestries, Doobinin treads in Elliot Smith and Damon Gough territory."
