Above all else, this album (Cinematesque Part 1) is incredibly tasteful. It’s blunt without being overbearing, playful without being silly, and there’s always a head-bobbing verse around every corner.

The Portland Phoenix

…always a solid bet.


The longest track on the record, “Déjame Tocar,” is in Spanish, which makes Ayerve’s exceptional voice sound even sexier…

The Advocate

…always a solid bet.


Music to sing loudly along to, whether it’s alone in your car or on the dance floor.

Mask or no, this guy’s got nothing to hide.

The Wax Tablet

It’s engaging stuff, well worth multiple listens.

[ASJ] breathes a string of brilliant, epigrammatic confessionals over a skeletal electro-pop beat. …Simple and unaffected.

‘Closer’- one of 2013′s Top 5 decent moments, Portland Phoenix

Mark this project in the triumph column.

The Bollard

a musical diaspora wholly welcomed and invigorating.

…taking his masked alter ego into realms that only those who’ve really lived can do.
