“With Soul Canon, Petals of Spain has forged its musical identity”
"Denver band Petals of Spain's new single worth a listen." "...slickly produced and pretty damn impressive." "...some of the most mature songwriting I've heard from a local band in recent memory."
"...good-looking, smooth-grooving members of Petals of Spain demonstrated the unfair weather in a show so lively their face paint dripped from their faces to the floor." "...a set that pulled from more genres than people on the stage, dual singers Hunter Hall and Nic Jay called on both serious crooning and fancy falsetto..."
"As you can see they are a young band..." "With their mix of instruments, sounds and voices and their undeniable emotive touch, we're curious to see what they do next!"
"...a cultivated sophistication rare in such music these days."
"...their music has infectious grooves that flirt with the borders of Rock, Pop, Funk, Soul and Jazz. This music is timeless, people, and why wouldn’t it be?"
"...they brought the place to its knees." "...Petals of Spain are consummate entertainers." "Keeping it rocking is exactly what they did."
“...Petals of Spain's performance was simply more dynamic and memorable overall, thanks to more interesting songs and arrangements, exceptional harmonies...”
"...Petals’ signatures of strong vocal backups and harmonies, great trumpet parts... and a danceable, groovin’ rhythm."
"This song “Lady Luck” comes in with an upbeat jazz-rock that mixes the class of a purist with a modern twist, and it does not disappoint."
“The winners were chosen by a judge panel.. who chose the three most original acts of the night. Petals of Spain deserved the win with their creative mix jazz-rock.”
