"Rickard’s voice is very rich and the production is very slick and modern and would stand up next to anything currently on the radio. But the lyrics and Rickard’s point of view are more original than you might find there." - Muse's Muse

Scenes and tales of everyday life are conjured and conveyed, the deeper meanings of which are there for the thoughtful listener.

"I’m naming “Stirred Not Shaken” one of my 10 best of the 2005. (****)" - Gay Chicago Magazine


"I’m always impressed by artists who can sing spiritual songs without preaching. In “Who I Am” and “As If To Say,” Rickard pours his soul out without the melodrama. He’s intense and passionate. And while the latter track is a deep, honest prayer set to music, it’s beautifully humble. He’s not preaching, he’s reaching. Whether his songs are secular or spiritual, Rickard is always stretching up on his tiptoes, trying to see the truth just over that mountain of worries and fears and insecurities." - Indie-music.com
