His music draws from life experiences and projects raw emotion, a refreshing break from all the futile pap that fills much of today's pop charts.

- Jay Clarke, Attitude Magazine (Apr 16, 2007) - Attitude Magazine



"There is something about KRIS SEARLE that brings me back to the music of my youth - namely, the British pop music of the 1980's. Much like a lot of the new wave/new romance sounds that filled the airwaves at that time, with the likes of DURAN DURAN, late-PRETENDERS, or even SPANDAU BALLET (the one song I remember), singer songwriter KRIS SEARLE is a pop prince with pretty eyes, gorgeous hair, and a heart on his sleeve. His debut CD 'SLOWLY DIABOLICAL' is everything that a great pop album should be, from the pop psychological heartache of the title track, to an anthem on picking up the proverbial pieces ('MOVING ON') and the earnest relationship gone-bad-song ('YOUR DIVIDE') - and it's all done with the most adorable British accent this side of DAVY JONES of THE MONKEES. KRIS has a voice that sounds pitch-perfect for musicals. However, it is easy to hear that he gives it his all in this very memorable first outing as a pop rock performer. In case there was a question of any sort of AMERICAN IDOL (or in his case POP IDOL) puppetry here, SEARLE has written all of the tracks himself"

" An artist such as Kris Searle is truly unique in the world of independent music artists. His British sound, style and influence stretch into relatively obscure bands such as Be Bop Deluxe and Camel, which shows his level of musical knowledge and history. Kris Searle is a first class, 21st century artist." - Al Bowman



"Kris Searle is an artist on the rise. Not only did he pack out the M Bar for the release of his new CD "Slowly Diabolical," but the band of all stars backing him brought the house down. His band included two of the original members of Gia's Fix, a husband and wife string section, and his sister on backing vocals. But the star of the night was the music, lyrics and voice provided by Searle. Among the highlights of the evening was his tribute to his deceased dad, which Searle dedicated to his Mum and sisters that were in attendance. The words and images brought back strong feelings of my own as I recalled my mother who passed a few years ago. Searle's music touches the heart and stimulates the soul, and deserves industry support and placement in a myriad of shows and movies. Searle is ready for the big time now"

"It was truly enjoyable to see a sincere and talented performer singing his intimate original songs from the heart, backed by multi-talented musicians. Kris is a hard-working singer/songwriter and his show was a breath of fresh air. I predict a bright career for this likable Brit. The show was entertaining and the songs were lovely. Lets welcome KRIS SEARLE HOLLYWOOD!!"
