“The clear winner. The singing is heartfelt, honest and highly unique,a voice of earnest longing. The production is highly original and simultaneously melodic and aggressive when need be. It is rare that I hear such clearly communicated Gospel music that is soulful, articulate and adventurous.”
“Aaron Strumpel and Todd and Angie Fadel somehow got together to lay down the most outstanding musical set of the conference, a raw, punk-like, discordant, and often strikingly beautiful take on The Psalms...It was so refreshing to encounter people who love God, and experience pain, and let it rip.”
“And to say authentic is to understate Strumpel. He feels as real as the dust that layers your arms when you've spent the day playing soccer with children in an orphanage in Mexico, complete with the pain that sticks to your heart.”
"Chair and Microphone, Volume 2" is not for the faint of heart, but for those who are willing to have their own hearts broken with the things that break the heart of God.
“Strumpel's passionate, percussive playing, slam-poet phrasing, and raspy, unrestrained delivery add an edge that nudges the conversation from merely interesting to incredibly engaging.”
“Raw acoustic, honest lyrics, soulful voice with and a gritty edginess that comes from letting your heart bleed into your art. Aaron is not a newbie, or a mainstream pop singer throwing ballads about Jesus around. He’s been around, and it shows in the maturity of his lyrics and voice.”
“On the Fourth Circle: There are wild bellows of freedom in becoming a community and people of God; there are frustrated and tired inquiries as to wickedness, trust, self and doubt; there are remembrances and a sense of journeying to a home that one has never been to yet.”
