Quotes and Reviews

“As  I sat at the back of The Art Bar watching  this performance, I quickly realized that  this was the type of performance that  I could just lean back, close my eyes, and float on the music… His songs have an ambient  folk rock feel to them  and are very enticing  musically, with the lyrics tending  to invoke some beautiful imagery.”          Being There Magazine

“Nice work and beautiful songs.”          Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Simon & Garfunkel, Ron Sexsmith, Bob Dylan, Rachel Yamagata, Jeff Buckley)

“Your voice and vibe sound beautiful.”          Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, Mr. Mister, David Sylvian, XTC)

“I stayed for the entire show and was thankful that so many people suggested Arctic. Had there not been such a strong buzz about the band with the people that I had talked to, I probably would have gone  home  without  ever  having  heard  them. I  think that  goes  to  show  the  power  of word  of mouth!”          Dillsworth                                                                                                                                                    

“An especially fine songsmith… His melancholy melodies burn with ache and longing.”          Molly O’Poverty

Three Acts Not to Miss at the NewMusicWest Fest: ARCTIC, Richard Dorfmeister, Armchair Cynics
“It’s rich, airy, and yes, a wee bit haunting. Just sit back, close your eyes, and let the loops and layers wash over you…”          24 Hours Vancouver 

“Cool in their own special sort of way.”          Chartattack
