"Rock Insider"

"J.'s quiet yet devastating voice conjures images of Elliott Smith and John Lennon." -

"Absolute Powerpop"

"A melodic marvel... Look for this one high up the year-end EP list." - Steve Farra, Absolute Powerpop

"Big Takeover"

"Decadent, harmonious pop of the highest order." - The Big Takeover

"As The Radio Plays"

"...finally after years of sonic immersion the secrets of pop music, discovered by those first and most brilliant artists, passes on to J. and writing pop music becomes effortless, as easy as breathing or placing one foot in front of the other." - As The Radio Plays

"Maddog Magazine"

"Lopez pays attention to the teachings of the master pop songwriters and overcooks nothing. He takes from the Kinks what The Thrills take from the Beach Boys. Sofa City Sweetheart's EP has good shape and progression, is loaded with melody and has an attractive, relaxed nature... it is a thoroughly enjoyable listen.” - Ben Wood, Maddog Magazine

"Even In The Future"

"This is the music that plays to remind everyone how sweet it is. J. Lopez is Sofa City Sweetheart and his voice is one of the sweetest going around." - Joseph Tuesday, Even In The Future Nothing Works

Sofa City Sweetheart is the music project of singer/songwriter and producer/engineer J. Lopez. Sounds as if The Kinks and Elliott Smith had a baby!

From Maddog Magazine:

J. Lopez is a songwriter, performer, producer, and sound engineer and his talents are collectively known as Sofa City Sweetheart. Successfully tapping into that 60s California pop sound he creates fetching melodies in his songs that retain a tongue-in-cheek edge. Of course, Lopez needed some help to fill out his debut EP. The operatic background vocals, violin, cello, and nicely compressed drums are provided by a company of musicians who make Sofa City Sweetheart sound like a band rather than a one-man effort.
