“Skillful artist whose amiable, laid-back recordings demonstrate exceptional attention to detail, especially in his acoustic guitar and the way instruments are placed in the mix…what’s distinctive about his brand of pop-rock is its decided smooth-jazz influence in some of the guitar interludes (“Blame”) and in his use of the Rhodes keys.” MUSIC CONNECTION “On ‘Let It Flow’ Enghauser’s memorable music flows like a mighty musical river… ‘I Vow’ and ‘I Hope These Words Find You’ all reveal Enghauser’s ability to create harmonies out of nothing. ‘Tower’ is a noteworthy closing cut that aptly demonstrates Enghauser’s ability to use different aspect of multiple music genres and eras…” WILL PHOENIX/L.A.
