Pete Mroz / Press

“The second full-length independent release from Pete Mroz. Many folks will, no doubt, be surprised at the inherent commercial appeal of Pete's music...particularly when you consider the fact that he is, at this time, an underground musician trying to find an audience. Pop fans will be interested to know that the lead track ("Heartache and Lace") was co-written with Steve Allen (from the power pop band 20/20). But don't expect power chords and hard drumming as the track is extremely soft and subdued...and sets the pace for this cool and refreshing soft pop album. Mr. Mroz's vocals are absolutely effective...and he comes across sounding totally genuine and sincere on all ten tracks. Cool and reflective, Detachment could easily lay the foundation for some major commercial successes in the very near future...”

“As much as I'm not really into the music of Jack Johnson and the other melodic male troubadours that have followed in his footsteps, I have to say that I do like this CD from Pete Mroz. I think the difference is that the others have more poppiness to their songs, but Pete's music has that folky singer-songwriter feel to it.The opening tune "Heartache and Lace" would be a bona fide hit if it managed to get picked up by major radio stations. The follow up tune "Phone Calls", while a bit lighter, is just as good. This is a CD that is worth the listen.”

“The guy is fully invested in his gentle compositions and not just as a sideline, as is the case with so many. He plays a simple chord-oriented guitar while making a melodious and wistful singing voice the main point—pitch perfect, floating, and pliable. Think of the mellowest sides of early America,Chris DeBurgh, Batteaux, Simon & Garfunkel, that sort of thing. Hauntingly beautiful and then some.When you might need a period of calm and reflection, this is what you want. Soothingly arranged, gorgeously spare and spacious while exactly populated for precise and perfect evocations, Detachment is a rare bird and herewith joins my small collection of diamond expositions in this vein, releases all too few and far between. Be prepared for pastorales, thoughts on vanished love, insights on human dilemmas, and moments so poignant they make your spirit ache, each one presented in filigree and gauze—in short, ten cuts of non-stop exquisite delicacy.”

Mark Tucker - Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange

“In the vein of the best singer/songwriters comes the new album of songs from Pete Mroz. Dark and moody, introspective and emotional, he uses his acoustic guitar and soulful singing to convey ideas about life, love, and the turmoil that seems to wrack many in today’s sometimes desperate society. If that seems a little heavy, well it is and it is also deeply affecting. E.S.”
