October 19: “His catchy, pop friendly melodies support keenly crafted, hard-hitting lyrics. His guitar is supple, his milk-warm tenor honest and gently acrobatic… He does not duck hard truths and never succumbs to the temptation to tie his points up in neat platitudes or truth-isms. He writes powerfullay and uncompromisingly about the wrenching separation suffered by single parents, the tug between love’s desire and its demands, and the bitterness of being nonwhite in the Eurocentric culture… He is that rare performer for whom people lean forward in their seats as eagerly between songs as the do during them.” – The Boston Globe. vancegilbert.com.
