"His instrumentation sets him apart from other singer-songwriters of the same genre, often adding gentle synths, a killer trumpet solo, or a moody saxaphone riff to bring a jazzier feel that offsets lyrics of heartbreak (or amplifies them, depending on the listener)."
THE MINNESOTA DAILY, Bel Moran
"Colin Bracewell's track, 'Why', is a masterful display of heartfelt lyricism matched with dynamic songwriting. The brilliant high falsetto cries against the minimal production, add depths of emotion, especially with such a variety of sounds that are being produced. Light ambient synths, diverse guitar strums, and a blind-sided switch of the melody and pace from the chorus into the bridge act as a clever misdirection leading into the eruptive outro. For as chill and minimal as it seemingly portrays, 'Why', is a cinematic journey that's left me hitting repeat, repeat, repeat, in hopes of discovering another goose egg of sounds I missed the first time around."
