"There is no softness in a Jesse Younan song but there is much tenderness. By that I mean that he doesn't avert his eyes, or yours, from harshness lived or observed... Astonishingly good." - Bernard Zuel (SMH)

"Sydney singer-guitarist Jesse Younan has a percussive fingerpicking style reminiscent of sharpening knives, and he sure knows how to use them." - Michael Dwyer (The Age)

"Jesse Younan sets himself apart from the 'another man, another guitar, another singer/songwriter' pack in two ways. Firstly Younan's is one of the more talented acoustic guitarists treading the boards, his fine picking style sitting him somewhere between the folk of Richard Thompson and the the blues of Tim Buckley. And secondly the Tim Buckley compassion doesn't stop there, for there are moments, flashes, when Younan's finely timbered mellifluous vocals begin to soar in a way that touches on the Buckleyesque" - Chris Peken (Alternative Media Group)

Proceeds go to the Leukemia Foundation.
