“(CD Review of “Pocket Fulla Nothin'”, SunCave Records – May 1/2011.) Kyler Schogen hits a
sweet spot musically, that area just where rock, blues and folk converge. It is a place which
musically, is almost ideal, at least to my ears, a devout blues lover, who appreciates a good rock
song, and the lyrical strength of folk. It’s a crossover locale others have visited, some making it their
musical home. Schogen should certainly make it his residence since he is clearly at home in this
neighbourhood. The end result is a pleasing CD, an effort worth lending an ear to, just maybe regularly.”
