PopDose - EP Review "His cover of Sam & Dave’s hit “Hold On, I’m Coming” is in second position and gets a backwoods makeover that, while indistinguishable from the original arrangement, contains a sense of urgency and danger, which makes it a stellar reimagining." - (July 2, 2015)
Short and Sweet NYC - EP Review "Once again Morgan manages a cozy little gem of a tune with his singing over just the perfectly produced bed of sound." - (June 26, 2015)
The Future FM Blog - EP Review "Songs like “Lost At Sea” show a truly remarkable ability to craft an atmosphere, with reverb-laden violin by Chicago native Sarah Blick and mournful low-end movement courtesy of Ohio cellist Greg Byers. Bold and creative, Morgan is the sound of a bold new generation of folk musicians. - (June 15, 2015)
Nashville Music Guide - EP Review "I could listen all day and all night.  Empathy for Inanimate Objects has become my mantra for writing. It is, I do believe, the best album I’ve reviewed this year." - (Sheryl Craig, June 14, 2015)
Sleeping Bag Studios - EP Review "Get this guy a couple more solo albums under his belt and I think we'll be hearing a lot more from Morgan on the regular; he's a wonderfully authentic artist with real heart & real emotion that bleeds sweetly into his melancholy melodies." - (June 11, 2015)

The Big Takeover Magazine - EP Review "...his woodsy picking style brings to mind Neil Young's early 70's recordings, and his own tenor voice suggests Young was obviously a major guiding force for Morgan musically." - (June 4, 2015)

"the upbeat folk/rock band dares to ask the question What if all the conspiracy theories were true?" - Neorevivalist (Nov 1, 2012) –Lonnie Edwards (The Neorevivalist)
"While Chicago artist Matt Morgan's visual art pares images down to basic shapes, simplifying objects into blocks of color, his recent music album is just the inverse of that-- it turns the sweater of life inside out and shows us the fascinating patterns, loops, twists, turns and strings behind it. He does this through simplicity, complexity and through a word not often used outside overly-serious law firm advertisements, yet is in “Red Silhouettes” in spades: integrity."   - Hannah Frank, On Axis Music
