Sounds of Oz
"That slow, soulful build-up is so worthwhile."
"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."
"All of the emotions Harp felt during those tough times were channeled to create this haunting, ambient-folk song." [7/10/18]
Ear to the Ground
"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)."
Karina Marquez, Imperfect Fifth
"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."
