“The mix of retro-rock influences alongside the song’s post-punk energy mark it as a natural live number. Imagining Anders and his band attacking the song with abandon for a rapturous concert crowd doesn’t strain credibility; it seems like a natural fit. From the outset it bears down on listeners with rambunctious fervor and illustrates the extent of Anders’ skill as a vocalist. He matches the song’s pace without even an inkling of exhaustion.” - Laury Verdoux
“ This fresh track fuses his compelling songwriting skills with a potent soundscape, leaving us craving more. It’s a melodic maelstrom that combines raw intensity with sublime harmony. As the track unfurls, the artist’s distinctive vocals ensnare listeners, pulling them into a world of emotion and energy. Each note resonates with authenticity, displaying an impressive range that’s both captivating and inspiring.” - Ethan G
“I approached Kris directly, having discovered his music on Spotify and after being ensnared by his clean and raw sound, and mature approach to songwriting. Now knowing Kris personally, it is clear he is an emerging talent to look out for - one that is ready to take his music to the next level.” - - James D.J. Morgan, Senior A&R / Talent Scout, Liberty Music PR.
“Bringing back more of that warm and triumphant pop-rock direction he has built for himself, 'Ever Enough' makes for a wonderfully rousing listen. With its raw and driven hooks, powerful atmosphere, and his own vibrant voice at the helm, he is continuing to prove himself as one of the more captivating names on the rise right now.”
“Anders connects again with "How Did We Get Here", an elevated, uplifting song full of rich harmonies and haunting emotion; a lingering Nashville-meets-Coldplay anthem with shades of instant soundtrack classic in real time.” - Bobby Hanson - Citation Records
“Kris Anders is back with another winner. A moody, instrospective multi-format song. "How Did We Get Here" is a perfect song for Country, AC or AAA with great vocals and instrumentation - and it has a bridge!” - Charlie O'Brien - Owner and Founder of Big 8 Radio
