“Adam Masterson’s brand of no-frills rock ‘n roll is hard to come by these days…[his] vocals exude charismatic worldliness, not unlike The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen.” – mxdwn
“Not unlike Ryan Adams, Masterson has the knack of writing songs that remind you of older and better-known pieces, yet still manage to fence off some turf that’s theirs alone.” – The Guardian
“Adam Masterson is his own master. He has a unique blend of music that dips into the artistic cauldron that mixes in the influences in order to serve up a unique blend of beautifully delivered dulcet toned ditties and poignantly penned songs for the ‘today’ generation.” – Louder Than War
“His signature voice could pretty much tell any story and keep the listener engaged.” –Sound Vapors
