"You don't hear a voice like that every day. You don't hear a person just start singing one note and you go 'Oh my God'! That's a voice he was just blessed with"
Marvin Hamlisch
composer "A Chorus Line", "The Way We Were"

"Such a beautiful clear tenor voice with considerable warmth and flexibility"
Wendy Nielsen

"Beautiful tone - Focused and pure"
Adrianne Pieczonka
Soprano, ACNMP 2014

"He has a powerful but easy stage presence and that unteachable gift to make an audience feel comfortable and yield to the theatrical occasion. I saw him do Shakespeare and contemporary work; he has a smashing rich, well-placed voice, intelligent interpretation with smart often surprising choices. He is an amazing singer and, without question has the ability to become an important interpreter..."
Adrian Noble
Director "Alcina" Vienna State Opera, Royal Schakespeare Company
