“It easy to like the style and voice of Vince Martinez. The first song ‘Sycamore’ is a great example of Vince's simplicity and focus on lyrics, with a few background instruments. ‘Sycamore’ and ‘The Oak’ are my favorites of the bunch. [...] Martinez and his band show a lot of promise, the style is comfortable, the songs are a reflection of his experiences—it’s always good to borrow perspective. ‘Forgotten Son (Wounded Man)’ sums up a serious theme that seems to underlie the whole collection—loss of youth or connection. ‘The Oak’ ends the CD with a nice guitar lick and an experience we can probably relate to—leave and come back to find that not much has changed. When you aren’t sure what to do, go with a tree song and go see Vince when he passes through.”
