"With Tender Beats the Chicago native, and second generation Filipino, brings forth a compelling and thoughtful debut that flows through the soul with ease and grace." - Chicago Crowd Surfer
"The songs feel like something Elliott Smith might have recorded if he had been making music in the Midwest instead of the Pacific Northwest." - Baltimore OUTLoud
"Conrad’s not overtly trying to impress you – he just is impressive. Songs like 'Thirty Five' come out as naturally as a heartbeat from his chest, tunes like this come from the inside." - Sleeping Bag Studios
"Think of it as a mix between José González and The Postal Service, but with a character that’s truly one-of-a-kind.
- The Bandcamp Diaries
"A beautiful album of textured acoustic elements and slow, melancholic percussion, ‘Tender Beats’ is an expansive release stitched together from layered layered vocals, engaging melodies, and organic production, bringing to the fore a soft, evocative sound that is simply impossible to resist." - Broken 8 Records
"This album is truly a solo effort; Conrad Merced plays all the instruments and provides all the vocals. He also wrote all the material, songs that are emotionally engaging, with good, honest lyrics. The music is largely folk, but with some atmospheric work on synths giving it a different sound and mood." - Michael Doherty Music Blog
