"Ryan successfully dips into the pools of reggae, jazz, world-beat, and ethereal to create a lush landscape of sound, touching on everything from positive underlying political themes to simple tales of love."

"Lyrically it's quite topical and telling, ranging through a variety of themes that we all can relate to on some level. An overall vibe that is psychedelic in nature, Knowledge grabs your attention from the first moment despite its chill atmosphere."
