“Adlai Waxman brings together intelligent lyrics and catchy melodies, delivered with a warm and inviting voice. "

“Waxman’s melodic sensibilities instantly channel the stylings of Randy Newman, Steely Dan or Joe Jackson filtered through a mature Ben Folds”
- Ian Nathanson/Metro Toronto
“The melodies are wistfully sweet, Waxman’s voice resembles an early Elton John… Like Randy Newman with a splash of Ben Folds Five, Waxman is a talented songwriter”
