RADIO CAROLINE, LONDON UK - BOB LAWRENCE
"Every so often a song pops into my PC which stops me in my tracks and makes me sit up and pay attention. When I got an e-mail from Karl Eland asking if I would listen to a couple of his songs I clicked the button and within a few seconds I was trying to stop the hairs on the back of my neck from rising. Now and again I hear a song which reminds me of why I got into radio in the first place, by the time the song was three quarters of the way through I wanted to e-mail it to all my friends… I became almost evangelical about it.
This guy is so so talented, every so often you come across somebody with such talent you want to scream it from the rooftops. It is no exaggeration to say that these songs completely bowled me over, so much so that I took the unprecedented step of playing the raw demo’s on my show. That kind of reaction has happened before but, unfortunately, far too infrequently nowadays... it was many, many years ago that I felt this excited about an unsigned artist... Karl writes radio friendly songs which stick to the radio programmers ideals of beginning, middle and end and a great hook!"
WGRF 97 ROCK RADIO, NEW YORK USA - JOHN J P PICCILLO
"One of the finest songwriters I’ve heard in many years! A refreshing sound that is much needed today"
"I am predicting big things for Karl and his music...there is definite worldwide quality and appeal here!"
"Great feel good songs... a huge market for this music...watch out for Karl Eland!!!"
RADIO CAROLINE, LONDON UK - TED ELLIOT
"Karl Eland is without doubt the most talented new songwriter I have heard in a very long time. - Get this man a record deal now!"
THE SCENE, UK
"Timeless, rock and roll poetry at its best – packed with rich, lush storytelling and overflowing with detail... blending a perfect mixture of sing-along anthems and folk storytelling, Karl Eland wears it on his sleeve with songs about love, friendship, broken dreams, hope, and youth - telling the same stories that we have lived, that star the same characters that we have all grown up with..."
THE CIRCUIT, UK
"Music purposely built for car stereos, for arenas, for FM Radio play-lists - these are big songs! Every track he writes feels like an anthem! - with a sing-a-long chorus that seduces the soul and raises the spirit - allowing you to fall in love with great music all over again!"
"It’s not hard for people to relate to these songs...Karl's lyrics pull the classic trick of being desperately sad and moving whilst also being intensely romantic and hopeful at the same time – in a world where it seems everybody loses, these characters at least attempt to win...and at times Eland’s lyrics make you feel like
you could burst with overwhelming intensity."
