"Really dynamic, Really unique"

"You've put together an amazing portfolio of songs. I love your song Flyin'. I think that song is awesome. It's really great that you're doing covers of some songs on the side, but your original stuff is just awesome!"

"You have a sound that is really dynamic and really unique."
