“Canadian frontman brings the same sweeping sound as The War On Drugs to his latest indie-rock release.”
“Elk Island Park is intense and expansive. Stuff made for the silver screen. Melodies designed to tug on the heartstrings and reset the pace of your nervous system.”
Divide and Conquer
“Bowers stages his world as a spectral-spooked landscape, and imaginarium of what could be.”
B-sides & Badlands
“Poetically brilliant…one of the best songs we’ve heard all year.”
Rock the Pigeon
“His music combines the storytelling tradition of writers like Jason Isbell with a larger than life, cinematic kind of spirit…equally perfect for the climactic ending to an indie film or for listening while staring at the rain out your bedroom window.”
“Bowers must now be considered in the ranks of excellent modern Canadian songwriters, with folks like John K. Samson of the Weakerthans.”
Bob Mersereau, CBC
“His detail and character are worthy of a novelist, telling us life is a struggle that’s worth it if you keep your eyes and ears open.”
“Bowers has presented an almost cinematic experience with this album. He tackles stories and emotions that are grounded in real and deepcut feelings, but the production on the album elevates it to this larger than life status."
The East Mag
Stellar...Bowers creates characters and emotions as detailed as chapters in a book."
