"David Serotkin is much more than a singer/songwriter. He is a musical craftsman, a wordsmith whose talent to tell a story is set to some of the best original musical compositions we've heard in a long time. His material is meaningful, moving and easy-on-the-soul.
-- Phil Peretz, President/Founder of Indie Artists Alliance

"Rich musical textures overflowing everywhere, full of warmth, and variety... strong originality, amazing musical variety, and brilliant vocals and harmonies..."
-- Cyrus Rhodes of Indie Music Digest

"David Serotkin is a teacher, has a degree in English, a master's degree in consciousness studies and apparently a healthy sense of humor. Then there's his music. He's an award- winning songwriter who plays volunteer acoustic concerts around the Bay Area and recently won an award for his inspiring music...the guy sounds too good to be true, huh? But he is true..." -- Mike Osegueda of The Fresno Bee

"David Serotkin moves between his guitar and his keys like butter. He is a strong songwriter who never fails to provide a catchy hook, whether singing a song of loss, or celebration, or both. He wins over his audience and makes them oblivious to thoughts about whether straight-edged folk-pop is 'cool.' Full of heart and cautious optimism, his performances show instead what it means to be 'real.'"
-- Christopher Waters, owner of the Nomad Cafe
