"Press Clippings"

Here is some stuff media people said about me lately:

-Pop Montreal

-« Lo-fi production, simple arrangements, hooky melodies, anecdotic lyrics about every day life… Together, these qualities bring authenticity to the artistic project. »
-Voir

« He’ll leave you wanting more »
-Hour

« His album was often referenced on blogs as one of the most original local product of the year. »
-Ici Montreal

« His buzz is ever growing »
-Bang bang

« It captures so much of the Montrealais sense of humor (…) Lots of people do this lo-fi stuff, but few are able to make it fly with so many streamers. »
-Aji Signal

« Perfect for a love declaration mix tape. »
-Buffet
- pop montreal, voir, ici, etc
