“It's hard to pigeonhole Poe: He masters ethereal balladry ... produces orchestral drama... and blissfully trip-hops through the soulful and lyrically masterful "Wear Your Best."”
“He writes forensically exact lyrics with a dark, romantic sensibility, set to richly melodic, sensuously jazzy backing ..."”
“'The record is like visiting a sex museum.'”
“[Love Is Red] is easily the best make-out record of the year.”
“He renders smart folk-pop originals, tinted with hints of jazz ... that inspire a strangely fraternal feeling.”
"Poe does have a way with words."
"Finger-snapping, groovy, and sensual"
“David Poe can transform an evening from ordinary to something magical with his reality-based love songs.”
