"When I heard Carl's music I heard something real." Producer Scott Mathews
"Nice tunes with just the right attitude." Silvie Simmons, contributing editor Mojo magazine
“Today's featured track 'Who Would Have Thought' is quite the listen, it almost transports you through time and space to a secret meeting in a swanky big city apartment with that special someone. The track's creator, the talented Carl Schonbeck, really impresses with this masterpiece of song-making, striking every single heartstring with each note." - Erik Trainor, Radio Sparx
