Bryan Howell and The Standalones / Press

“....One of those very unusual albums that can create a sound that combines an older and newer beat. The band’s sound is like a collaboration between The Rolling Stones and Weezer.....The album is a great combination of garage, rock and even a hint of indie, and brings out the diversity of artists that Bryan Howell and The Standalones are influenced by. Any fan of ‘60s to late ‘90s music will love the fine balance that Howell and his band bring to this EP.”

“With influences ranging from The Clash to Elvis and The Knack to The Strokes, you just know that Bryan is onto something good with his music and this EP....you can rest assured that we will be be hearing great things from Bryan in the future.....brilliant!”

“....This album offers up all of the awesome traits of a summertime rock album. From sweet guitar tones, chords and patterns to happy, sing-a-long choruses, this album does everything it should.”

".....Perfectly blending the accessibility of power pop with the hard-hitting instrumentation of rock....The music is quick, driving, and filled with hooks."

Heath Andrews

"....Plays a high-energy mix of '80s powerpop and New Wave music...."
