"Solo artist Derek Knott's songs are like little prayers- little secular prayers. That's not to say there isn't plenty of soul and spirituality in his acoustically rooted music. Even the laid back tunes smile warmly and swing sweetly." -Rochester's City Newspaper
"Infectious melodies, the moods go from fun to melancholy to romantic" - Dean Ervin, WYEP -FM, Pittsburg, PA
