"Tracks that range from cocktail soul so mellow it would make Robin Thicke blush to John Mayer–esque secretary rock. Is this edgy or revolutionary? Nope. But it is radio-friendly and packaged to make major commercial waves."
“Seattle-based Tommy Simmons doesn’t shy away from introspection and earnestness, as in “Joseph” and “San Diego”―but he also knows how to bare his teeth, as in the snarling “Potential” and “Velocity.” Plus, the songs are catchy as hell and very soulful.”
"Appropriately titled Someway, Somehow the album is full of soft acoustic undertones that would work well on any Jason Mraz or John Mayer LP. Crystal clear vocals, flawless production, and string arrangements the likes of which haven't been heard since the Goo Goo Dolls song "Iris" makes this album sound like a million bucks."
“And finally, the real treat came when Tommy sang us a haunting little song about a friendly ghost named Joseph”
"You should make a point to get familiar with Mr. Simmons and his infectious tunes."
“Simmons sounds like a cross between Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson, his songs incessantly melodic and catchy.”
"...sounded like a mix between the husky, breathy voice of Jack Johnson and the guitar skills of Jason Mraz."
