"There is very little I can say about Carl Pannuzzo that will not come out sounding like he paid me lots of money to say it. So let me just say this, and I''ll say it for free: he looks like a normal-enough guy, but in fact Carl Pannuzzo is one of the most precious songwriters we have. And just for the record, it was his music that first inspired me to become a songwriter. His songs are the best kept secrets Melbourne has ever had. For his honesty and his ability, he''s right up there with the big ones. Years before I knew him, his songs had already seen me through my very darkest nights. His songs become like a set of keys into a whole new house of thought. His melodies lodge themselves into people''s heads like inspiring little secrets...and it''s all true"...(Clare Bowditch)
