The Reviews are In...
I was simply blown away by your material. Your vocal work is just outstanding. Passionate, soulful. The tunes are rich and very vibey. This must surely be your full-time occupation. If it's just a side-line-- quit your day job now! You should be touring and recording professionally. Loved so many of your songs. Thanks again... and much success to you in what is no doubt a bright musical future.
Jazzy, soulful, eclectic. Karsten Durand & The Collective make great music with a message. If Bobby Mcferrin had a back up band equally adept at Jazz and Rock it might sound as good as KD&TC.

I listened to your album 3-4 times yesterday. It's absolutely brilliant..the pure emotion...kinda very reduced and real. Definitely avoiding all cliches...breaking up musical structures without destroying them..and the voice sings soul EXACTLY how I always felt it...[should be]

...great talent, smooth sounding vocals, and very original.

Smooth funk soul grooves. The Karsten Durand Collective, an evolving, smooth soul band with funky pop sensibilities and a late night, acid-jazz vibe. [Karsten] The former Atlanta Boy Choir member has a great silky voice, like what Barry White must have sounded like before puberty.

Each track is well sculpted and flows beautifully. The genre could be classified as a mix of Luther Vandross, Barry White and a touch of Lenny Kravitz....
I listened to your music on the MP3 web site, and I think it is excellent.
