“I have to say Ross Breen blew me away… Just go and see him, you won’t be disappointed.” – Roadhouse Magazine
“…excellent lyrics and a passionate, rugged vocal and guitar delivery...” – Hot Press
“…nothing short of a revelation. Despite being a supremely talented guitarist, it was actually his voice that left the lasting impression, a cross between the soaring wildness of Jeff or Tim Buckley and the world-weary bassiness of Tom Waits. He is definitely a name to watch for the future.” – Sligo Weekender
“an interesting twist on the singer-songwriter theme… His songs leap across a span of styles… the voice is something to behold… the melodies are catchy and broad ranging, some funky, some folky… think Tom Waits and Beck with a subversive streak of Kinky Friedman” - Iris Magazine
