Previous praise for Christopher Sprake:
"Lush acoustic pop that makes you wanna go back and listen a few more times" “an obsession with pretty aesthetics"(INPRESS magazine – So Beautiful single)
" ...finely crafted, with a subtle layering of sound..." (Ron Burd, MD, CIUT-FM Toronto – Winter upon us single)
~ “Letting the music speak, Christopher Sprake tells stories that burn a memorable experience that will let one’s soul fly. An EP that deserves the title of mini-album…23 minutes of escape, with licks of early REM, back to a time when lyrics mattered” (John Murch, Broadcaster – Firebird EP)
“Hidden Currents’ album After Image is a forceful melancholy offering. ~ This is potent stuff and should have a warning label for non-physical harm. Pushing and tearing, it makes space where there wasn’t any before.” Sarah Pritchard – AltMedia.
