”Makaya McCraven has established himself as one of Chicago's most versatile and in-demand drummers” - Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader

“one of the hardest drummers on the live music circuit” - Boyuan Gao, Revivalist.okayplayer.com

“the easy versatility of his work was unmistakable. Whether projecting a light touch and lithe technique in his “Zsiga” or unleashing an onslaught of sound elsewhere in the set, McCraven projected unassailable authority.” - Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
