Here's what the critics have to say

"'s not hard to hear and feel that Adam is part of that small few who find music as an extension of part of himself that he is willing to share with those who listen. There is a raw compelling quality to his vocals which leads you ... from one track to the next — and hitting replay at the end."

Fretz Program

88.1 FM KVSC
"Hammer's guitar tells stories as ably as his vocals and leaves a wonderful afterglow."

Chris Bremseth

University Chronicle
"...Hammer has succeeded in surrounding his poetry with a quiet, lush, acoustic vibe that draws you in and makes for some great laid-back listening."
