 A roots musician who writes some of the sweetest blues-infused, country-fied, American rock music of our time. - No Depression 
 A moody alt-country original. - Nashville Scene

 Kelly’s bad-ass, roots music was a perfect fit for True Blood! - Gary Calamar, True Blood Music Supervisor 
 The reason Kelly’s music appeals to me is a visceral one. You can actually feel the pain and struggle as well as the self reflection in his music. Not unlike a great painting, Kelly’s music is something that grabs you by the chest and says LISTEN TO ME. - Bob Mair, Black Toast Music Publisher 
 Whether he’s doing the indie rock thing or the country rock thing or the singer/songwriter thing, Kelly Pardekooper writes lyrics that ring so authentic and true it gives you goosebumps and his latest album, Milk In Sunshine is his best yet. - Americana Music Show
