"Roslindale Bulletin"

Jamaica Plain resident Keith Hampton's CD HOPEfire is mellow, with lyrics you can understand and listen to again and again. His songs tell stories that you want to pay attention to. It's not mindless pop that is easily forgotten... - Kim Foley MacKinnon

"CD Baby"

Fan Review inspiring listen! Reviewer: Kelli Eagan, singer-songwriter/performer
July 14, 2002
This is a message to all who HAVEN'T heard Keith's new album yet...You are in for an inspiring listen! In my opinion, it's one of the most incredible group of songs I have listened to in a WHILE (this includes all the major and indie releases). If you know his music, then you know what a great songwriter Keith is. This entire album is me...I get bored easily with a song if it's not holding my attention in some way!!! I wanted to listen to and take in every second of this album. Next to his lyrics, his voice and guitar playing are nothing except exceptional...and I think you'll appreciate his unique, honest, heart-felt style. Truly a muscian in the Boston music scene that stands out just based on his captivating and beautiful compositions...just wait until you hear them! - Kelli Eagan
