...the feeling of his music is what first struck me; the ambience and emotion, amid acoustic-guitar driven arrangements speak to me musically, in the same way the legendary singer-songwriters from the sixties do. - Tunedloud Magazine
I highly recommend checking out Follow from Doug Hawco, it's a superb album from an East Coast Artist for fans of folk, roots, pop and everything in between. - Jenna Melanson, Canadian Beats Magazine
This is a highly enjoyable album which should make it into any folk collection. This contains many would be singles that could be sent to adult contemporary, middle of the road radio formats. - Dillon Collins, The Newfoundland Herald
