"If there's one thing we love, it's a rock anthem we can jam out to. The gritty and raw performance from Tyler Jakes is JUST what you need."
--Gas Mask Magazine
"Jakes’ experiences portrayed through his music broadened my horizons to an infinite degree. His music instills a hunger for experience, knowledge, and appreciation."
--Nicholas Davis (It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine)
"Tyler Jakes is an astonishingly accomplished musician who revels not so much in virtuoso self-indulgence as in writing tunes which resonate heart and soul with the listener."
"Jakes is intent on laying down some truly dirty rock and roll. The end result evokes T. Rexs’ mellow glaze crossed with Sergio Leone soundtrack/gypsy punk miscegenation."
--Pulse of the Twin Cities
"Jakes seems to truly appreciate the crowds that come out and puts on a show fit for thousands."
--SF Bay Area Rock
"Jakes continues to push the boundaries of sound and genre creating unique and interesting fusions of music."
-- The Music Cycle
"...like Woody Guthrie put through a 'Terminator' disco lounge." - Steve April
"Tyler Jakes is what every pretentious, contrived musician/group 'these days' is trying to be." - Jack Luna (Dark Topic)
"This is one of those guys that I hear and think, 'Why haven’t I heard of him before?' His songwriting skills are very, very good for an unsigned artist."
--The Audio Nut
"Jakes displays great range and talent as a song writer. His words spill out like a ray of amped beatnik stream of consciousness. In fact, it seems like spontaneous artistic bloodletting."
