“Fun and upbeat, yet melodic and relaxed - this album will make you feel like you've been touring from city to city, night after night, playing shows for enthusiastic crowds of unknown people from far away places.”

"No wonder that his fans recommend him, because of all Dan Coyle has to offer with his music. His voice clear, full of feeling, and truly takes up the mood of his songs; sometimes melancholic as in "Something's changed", sometimes in the style of the French laissez-faire as in "C'est la vie".

“From Prague to Paris is a refreshing folk album, with Coyle modernizing the familiar theme of being on the road with his energetic talent.”

“His fragile vocal style combines beautifully with some outstanding guitar picking and strumming and he shows great versatility in his songwriting from the light, airy Listen Closely Now to the heartfelt emotion of I Adore You. His album, You Linger Your Little Hour And Are Gone, is excellent.”

“Folksinger Dan Coyle's new album "You Linger Your Little Hour And Are Gone" is a collection of refreshing fluid vocal sounds accompanied by soft syncopated acoustic guitar rhythms. Coyle's proof of talent is marked by very tastefully written lyrics in each song. Overall I find this album very mellow, poetic, and joyous album.”

"Bright musicality and sunny inflections almost hide the thoughtful and thought-provoking lyrics that are woven throughout this album. A lo-fi live recording that's simple without being simplistic, and utterly charming."

“Chicago-based singer-songwriter Dan Coyle has been cranking out neo-folkpop tunes reminiscent of Cat Stevens, Paul Simon and Jason Mraz since 2004. Quad News got a chance to catch up with Coyle before the show to discuss the future of folk, spontaneous songwriting and the art of connecting with a live crowd.”

“Dan Coyle is a nationally touring musician…, something changed inside of me as I watched Dan’s candid video, and then listened to his honest and sincere responses to my questions – his passion and inspiring story blew me away.”

“When you listen to the recent work of Chicago-based singer/songwriter Dan Coyle, you get the feeling he’s got a knack for spotting the silver lining in whatever gray cloud life puts over his head.”

"Coyle fits nicely between folk insight and a clever musicality that avoided minor chords where you'd ordinarily expect them, like when he covered Simon & Garfunkel's "Homeward Bound." Perhaps this added to his overall upbeat demeanor and charm. Coyle was pleasant and genuinely shy, but came out strong with the start of each new song. I liked him."
