Part of it All

“Artfully conceived and expertly executed, Part of It All is nearly a masterstroke. Sophisticated, spirited and cunning”
-Seven Days

“His sound belongs to the hours right before dawn when you wake up a little too early, and you’re not quite sure what to think about. Then you realize it’s best to just listen to the birds start chirping as the dawn reveals itself in its own good time.” -The Portland Tribune

“Oooooooooh this is utterly lovely: Beautiful melodies, lush harmonies, and all the jingles in the right places. There is the sense of theatre that artists such as Sufjan Stevens achieve, and Gruen’s music certainly stands alongside such artists comfortably. Lullaby School is truly a thing of beauty.” -Americana-UK
