“Quickness, with it’s combination of multi-talented musicians delivers a soulful Incubus-like sound with the heart and drive of Stone Temple Pilots. Their seamless melodies never tire of twisting and turning.” Oct 20 2011 – Danica Steward / Toronto Rock Music Examiner
“Album of the week - Quickness: Anthems For Your Ghettoblaster” The Province Newspaper, August 1 2011 Vancouver, BC, Canada
“Quickness is blessed with a talent for writing concise and cohesive songs, smartly contructed and simply stated… As well, Jacob Dryden’s vocals are impassioned and his guitar-playing also suggests a Jimi Hendrix influence, which adds an extra dimension to the band. Quickness sounds more versatile and flexible than it’s rather narrow description indicates.” The Province Newspaper, July 30 2011 email@example.com
‘’Quickness delivers radio rock in all its post-hardcore glory. Soaring melodies and vigorous riffage round out their sound, while echoing hints of reggae and new-age anthem rock. Coupled with skin-tight, K-os certified drummer Ray Garraway, Quickness is unstoppable in its hard-hitting soundscapes. “It’s easy to get into!” exclaims the man behind the kit. Well, that’s an understatement if I ever heard one. Not only are these veterans astounding in their musical accessibility, but lead singer/guitarist Jacob Dryden’s lyrics are simply overflowing with everyman-imagery. It’s the kind of stuff relatable to anyone with a heart and a social conscience, and it makes for some downright feel-good rock-n-roll.‘’ Jan 20 2010 Ben Rowley
