“LOVING ROGER! I’ve been listening to the 3 songs Roger! has on their Reverbnation account. Even though, there is just 3, I’ve been listening to them over and over and over. Why? Well, because Roger! is epic! They are easily worth listening to over and over and over! I loved both Ernie Garcia and Candice Campbell’s voices solo and together. Ernie’s voice is mid-ranged, mellow and completely perfect for his genre. Candice’s voice strikes me deeply. I think it’s because, to me, her voice is hauntingly beautiful, earthy with a slight rasp that makes me wonder what her laughter sounds like.”
“Wonderfully arranged, dark, and breezy pop. This is not revivalist music, but the ’60s – ’80s, Beatles to 10,000 Maniacs, AM Pop to New Wave, echo hard on the ten songs here. What Roger! is about is well-crafted tuneful material with both male and female vocals, from Garcia and Earnhart, at times raw, at times orchestral, with lush arrangements custom fit to each song. Earnhart in particular has a great voice, raw and soulful, full of emotion in every note – the string laden ballad, “Slicktender” is a great showcase for her. The CD opens strong with the melancholy jangle pop rock of “Unpredictable” and doesn’t let up with either hooks or melodies. There are several natural singles, probably topped by the charming, folky “Beautiful,” the intertwined harmony vocals from Garcia and Earnhart adding the right touch to the song to maximize melody. But, it’s hard to pick a favorite.”
“Roger! Dark Matter Many good things have been found on craigslist, and Ernesto Garcia Jr. knows this well. Garcia used the classifieds site to assemble his band, and, for the most part, it paid off. Only one complaint: Candice Campbel-Earnhart is underused. The album's best track, "Dull," features her gloriously smoky voice, but it's buried in the middle. —T. Loper EXTRASPECIALGOOD”
"Roger!, Dark Matter: This mellow rock group contrasts their lighter sounds with darker lyrical material to create an alluring mixture of music in their album Dark Matter. A great combination of different talents in making this piece."
