"Distorted sounds create a feeling of unease and edginess, contrasting with, to use Harp’s own description, “celestial sounds”, giving a more hopeful, metaphysical tone." [8/8/18]

"Samuels bares his soul in the haunting way that only music can do. The lyrics are few and far between, yet they manage to encapsulate the same amount of emotion, or even more, than most ballads."

"He is one of the most inspiring artists that I know; he is also a photographer and a true Renaissance man."

—Queen Beetch

"Sweet as summer fruit but underpinned by longing, they’re redolent of stripped-down records by Bon Iver and Sigur Ros while imitating neither. These are statements of universal love and salves for emotional wounds. Harp Samuels is an angel on the shoulder of his listeners, purring words directly into their ears, and their minds. He engenders a feeling of intimacy and exclusivity: people who hear him tend to want to keep him like a secret. But his music belongs to the world."

—Vents Magazine

"The start-stop arrangement of Harp Samuels‘ “Wanting” sounds like the distant fragility of Jeff Buckley’s guitar work run through a latter-day Bon Iver-esque mood filter. Soul-inflected vocals, a la Moses Sumney, complete the arrangement."

—Independent Clauses

"There are some spine-tingling moments in the song. It’s thoughtful and comforting. It has a spiritual inclination that is sure to pull in some listeners. I can’t imagine hearing this in a cathedral (but I’d love to hear it)." 

—Ear to the Ground

"The sound is so rich, full, and engrossing that it’s hard to believe that the music and the message is as straightforward as it is. But it is, and that’s the secret to Samuels’ artistry. He’s a disciple of beauty in all its forms, and his records are arrows right to the heart of his fans."
