Cyrus Rhodes — Indie Music Digest:

“From start to finish Says the Rain by Kurt Winikka is an impressive collection of music. From start to finish it’s very passionate, and extremely melodic in nature. To say the least it’s packed to the hilt with musical variety. The writing, playing, & singing abilities of Kurt Winikka and company are impressive and will be sure to lift your spirits without even trying. As the CD progressed I became more and more impressed with him as an artist. The musicianship is first rate, each song possessing a unique personality, flair, and signature groove. Lastly – the playing, writing, and singing abilities of Kurt Winikka and company are rock solid.”

Vance Gilbert – Singer/Songwriter:

“The album gets repeated spins here at the desk. These stories are just that – stories. There are kinetic, affecting and well drawn characters in every song. Bravo many times over.”
