“Canadian singer-songwriter Christian Howse has a way with words. On “Doghouse,” he offers something stark and honest and lovely — his voice aches when he sings each hurting lyric among an arrangement of wailing strings, acoustic strums, and the loud silence of regret.”
“Christian's raw talent and ability is staggering. His guitar work is very unique and when combined with the lyrics and vocal it is a killer package.”
— George Canyon
“ A great lyricist and perhaps a better poet.”
“musical prodigy....embarrassingly talented...” and “everything you want in an artist.”
— The Newfoundland Herald
