Baltimojo, Reggae Runnins

Whispering Lion's forte' is his vocal delivery
Whispering Lion's forte' is his vocal delivery which can switch from a beautifully sung lyric to a chastising poetic phrasing to self-mocking soliloquies. Unapologetically quirky rockin' reggae.

Chuck Foster, The Beat

Whispering Lion puts a new slant on love, politics, rock and reggae.
"It is the job of critics to describe the music they hear and the easiest way to describe music is to liken it to something you've already heard. That really isn't possible with Whispering Lion whose Tribute to the Spirit pulls in elements of dance music, conscious Reggae, and that bugaboo, alternative to create something completely different that still slides into the Reggae groove. Whispering Lion puts a new slant on love, politics, rock and reggae. If I had to liken Whispering Lion to any other artist, I would go outside of reggae (though he remains firmly inside of it) to Lou Reed or the soul-groove-funk pre-rapsters of the '70s. Musically diverse, with tight arrangements, featuring full-strength background vocals and a lyrical focus on improving the world."
Chuck Foster/THE BEAT, Los Angeles, CA

Papa Pilgrim, Dub Missive

The styles of both Bob's (Dylan and Marley) blend nicely
The styles of both Bob's (Dylan and Marley) blend nicely, striking an interesting contrast between Rock and Reggae, with a bit of blues and a lyrical balance between social commentary and lover's ballads. This is a fun album."
