"Guitar Whiz" - Musician Magazine
"Ravi has a fine, richly textured voice and a degree of mastery of his instrument that calls to mind early Clapton and Duane Allman" - Dean Shapiro, Offbeat Magazine
"He consistently puts out quality guitar-laden music that has nothing to do with image or sunglasses. The music is independent of money and trends, full of background and passion." - Truly Hollywood
"Catchy pop tunes with memorable hooks and choruses and a glassy voice that calls to mind old Steve Winwood or Peter Frampton LPs" - Chris Rose, Times Picayune (New Orleans)
"Beyond the Blur is a showcase of (Ravi's) skills as a writer. It's a tasteful, intelligent record."
- Alex Rawls, Offbeat Magazine
"Good looks, a terrific voice, and...an imaginative flair for great arrangements" - John Swenson, United Press International
"A guitar laden trip into the world of pop...crisp and void of pretension" - AOL
"With the release of this CD, Ravi is bound to appease not only the extremely eager fan base he acquired with Hanson, but also fans of well-executed pop"
- Ray Hogan, Stamford Advocate, Connecticut
"Midway through the disc, we get an interesting acoustic interpretation of the Hendrix classic “Little Wing.” It's a simple solo interpretation with a funky jazz feeling. Sounds like something you'd hear in a coffeehouse or small jazz café environment."
- Kenneth Voss, Voodoo Child Magazine
"Ravi's music is carefully thought through, sprinkled with interesting details. His lyrics have multiple meanings and reveal new nuances on repeated listenings. It gives increased pleasure on each hearing."
- John Sweeney, Greenwich Time, Connecticut
"Great music on here...a very talented musician."
- Don Weeks, WGY Radio, Albany NY
