"On this, his second album, Krikorian comes of age...it’s the lyrics that grab you; if you’re a poetry or word fiend then Krikorian is for you. ‘Words’ is one of the stand out tracks here and like the other songs you’re never quite sure what he’s on about, but that’s the beauty of a good writer – he lets you make your own mind up... Supported by a full band, Krikorian traverses that fine line that differentiates a very good songwriter from a mere songwriter."
"Dan Krikorian’s second album ‘Colors And Chords’ provides sunny and lyrically outstanding songs in the well-known laid back style of the surfers Jack Johnson and Donavon Frankenreiter. Heartfelt emotions of both joy and pain are professionally incorporated in the 10 tracks on this magnificent record."
"As a songwriter Dan is a damned good craftsman."
"The universal strength of "Colors and Chords" that reaches across all genres, skill-sets, and expertise — whether you know music or not — is how well-written and poetic Dan's every song is. This album at its very core is a collection of great poetry rich in superb imagery, paired with intentionally moving and soulful tracks."
"I can no longer fool myself: after years of following music I've learned that for every artist you love, there are at least three others just as great whom you will never hear. After just one listen to Dan Krikorian's second album, I wonder how it's possible I hadn't yet heard of him."
