Press

“Philadelphia’s Eyelevel works a lot of familiar angles but manages to come up with something original in the process. The trio makes gorgeously atmospheric pop tinged with upbeat melancholy in a shiny mix that references like-minded musical brethren like the Police (“Not My Home”) and Toad the Wet Sprocket (“Back to Me,” “Breaking Me Down”). All of Eyelevel’s gifts come together in “Butterfly,” a song that shimmers with the laconic energy of Coldplay while crackling just under the surface with a Beatlesque vibe, and in “Sublime,” where guitarist John Pompeo makes like Jeff Buckley taking Glen Phillips’ place in Toad. There isn’t a single track on Eyelevel’s debut that wouldn’t sound appropriate drifting out of a car radio, and that’s a great place to start.”

Press

“He deserves our attention . . . thirty years ago Rolling Stone proclaimed they had seen the future of rock and roll and his name was Bruce Springsteen. Well, in the spirit of American Idol I cast my vote for this generation’s future of rock and roll, and his name is Rick Henrickson.”
—Fox News

“BANG! Accomplished cellist Katharine Bent (Joe Jackson, Cirque du Soleil fame) and Mike Errico guest on this pop-rock venture . . . The songs are electric and that could be due to the production reins being given to Blake Morgan of Lenny Kravitz notoriety. Rick [Henrickson] has a great voice and is single-handedly giving CPR to rock-n-roll. The one thing that is for sure, by the end of this album you won’t be Reaching For A Gun but rather for the repeat button.”

Press

“This woman’s got the goods.”
—Billboard Magazine

“This belle can belt and pen. Janita teems with vocal wattage and knows it.”
—The Village Voice

“It probably shouldn’t be allowed for someone as talented as singer-songwriter Janita to, also, be goddess beautiful. She not only writes beautifully powerful songs, but sings with such passion and conviction that it’s hard to take your eyes off her.”
—The Telegraph (UK)

“For some artists, it’s enough to be known by one name like Madonna, Prince, Sade, and Sting. Janita might be another name to add to the list.”
—PopMatters

“He’s got killer pop-rock instincts, something that leaps out at you . . . as well as a flair for recalling the days of pre-digital sound mixes. He has good reason to be excited here, given the sheer consistency and accessibility of the music . . . a natural when it comes to fashioning sharp melodies and catchy choruses.”
