David Simon's high, androgynous vocals remind me of Casey Stratton and sometimes Sarah McLachlan. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Oli Whitworth, Dave Seck and David Simon
The music is nicely-orchestrated pop with some truly stunning songs. "The Urge" sees Simon tackle a tough melody with truly stellar harmonies and an underlying tension he handles well. "Fire to the Sky" is a ballad that Simon handles with his usual skill and finesse. "Twisted" achieves a kind of drama that the singer handles with gusto. It's a very accomplished and promising debut in all. (email@example.com)
