"There's a beautiful danger to the way Christo Jones layers his music. The result is textured and sonically impressive soundscapes."
- Australian Billboard Correspondent
"Christo Jones has an extraordinary ear for sounds from different eras and manages to melt them together seamlessly. His talent for arranging and managing all the instruments with mechanical discipline and aesthetic intuition is remarkable."
- The Music (live review)
"Though one would assume Christo’s "one man multi-instrumentalist" sound to be a familiar one, the intricacies of his music and performance are nothing short of spellbinding and - dare I say – unique. With a huge sound that makes you think of bands like The Polyphonic Spree rather than a Xavier Rudd, with Christo Jones you can certainly expect the unexpected."
– The [AU] Review
“'Anyway' is a monumental layering of sounds and lyrical charm that make for an aural feast, something new can be heard each listen."
"Christo Jones makes a big impression with his debut single 'Anyway'. This is such a rich, lush song. It’s so exciting to uncover an artist who’s truly shaking things up. Expect to hear big things from Christo Jones."
