What have folks been saying about The Spark?

“Some songs are conceived and born quickly. And some of those songs, like ‘Yesterday,’ are game changers. But other times, you’ve just got to work and work and work. You’ve got to sculpt the songs into the little pieces of perfection that you are absolutely positive they are meant to be. That’s exactly what it would seem Kevin Heider has done with his ambitious double-album…’The Spark’ is an album unlike anything I’ve heard for a while…It’s an album that really couldn’t be born outside of the American experience.” Dan Alcantara’s at TheEqualGround.com (8/28/13)

“One of the best Albums I’ve heard in a long time. Every song is amazing.” Chris F.M. via an iTunes review

“Overall, this is probably the most original album I’ve heard in quite a long time. It’s refreshing and fulfills the want for depth of meaning in music. There is no common genre that I can think of to describe all the songs, except maybe the genre of awesome. I mean, with a song inspired by a vision of an Irish saint involving beer, a poetic nuclear protest, a tribute to one of the craziest cities in the world, a denouncement of the selfish american dream and wrapping up with a song about the most random age ever, what else is there to say?” — Jacob Neesons via an iTunes review
