Press/Reviews

Press Release

Nathan Brown Poet Laureate of Okahoma, "For someone who was born in Baltimore, and lives in Portland, Oregon, Carl Solomon sure does have a Route 66 soul in him. These are drivin' down the road songs. So load'em up and take'em with you..." 

Diane Hunt KBOO FM Host Folk Expresso Show- www.KBOO.fm. “Your Crow song is on my playlist yet again tomorrow morning. I just LOVE it. I sorta wish I could play it non-stop throughout my entire hour-and-a-half long show, it's that good.”

Judy Beaudoin Paradise House Concerts "Carl's prose is wonderfully creative and engaging, his melodies gentle, joyful and playful. To experience his live performance is to be wondrously transported to a place only sweet, true music can take you."

Laurie Sonnefeld Co Host "Movin On" KBOO FM Radio “Even though his music is tinged with humor, Carl Solomon's songs have the earnest approach of their Appalachian and country/western/folk roots. The guitar and back-up on his engaging new CD compliment Carl's honest and endearing vocal style. The songs combine simplicity, warmth and depth. He feels like an old and welcome friend from the first listen. Be careful, though the songs will stick with you, especially Those Two Crows.”

Steppin Out Gresham Outlook Newspaper “Solomon is a gentle, often humorous songwriter who writes catchy literate songs that reference everything from Hank Williams to the Flintstones.”

Doug Henderson, Promoter “Carl writes cool songs, plus he is a wonderful person!”
