Damian Erskine-Bass Musician Magazine:

Portland's very own Kevin Deitz really shines here with the release of Skylines. Kevin has had a wealth of experience playing bass everywhere from touring Broadway productions to the stage with the likes of Mose allison, Art Blakey, Dave Brubeck, Sheena Easton and everyone in between. Equally at home on upright as he is on his 7-string Conklin, Kevin showcases his abilities on both instruments with musicality, style and grace with Skylines. Featuring all original tunes, the acoustic material is swinging hard and features many of Portland's world class musicians (all of whom I know and can tell you, these are some BAD cats!!)
