About Memory

"Every year, as I listen to albums and EPs from former contestants of The Voice it seems like someone comes out of nowhere to stun me with a brilliant release. This year, it was Todd Kessler with this eight-track album." - Voice Views

About Memory named Album of The Week on Culture Clash!

"A dynamically-gentle, compelling folk-Americana album by an earnest singer-songwriter from Chicago. Mr. Kessler once shared his chops on The Voice and that certainly helped raise his profile as an artist of merit and will hopefully afford him a much deserved wider audience for this amazing new album." - Culture Clash

"Fans of The Voice might not remember Todd Kessler.

He was a contestant on Season 3, when The Voice advanced a whopping 64 contestants from the blind auditions. He bowed out of the competition in the battle round. And, until this past summer, he hadn’t released new music in five years.

But they might want to get re-introduced considering the fine singer-songwriter album Todd just released." - VoiceViews

"Chicago-based, singer-songwriter Todd Kessler’s new track “The Letter,”... captures the perfect essence of an Autumn song...Todd Kessler is far more than just a singer-songwriter.  In the vein of artists like the Weakerthans or the Mountain Goats, he’s also an excellent storyteller." - Atwood Magazine

"With its timeless swagger and singalong appeal, 'The Letter' is a stylish, rootsy song that is irresistible in its entirety. - When The Horn Blows

"The production is superb and it allows Kessler’s vocal to resonate powerfully. His overall style is rejuvenating and I love how it compliments the lyrical content. It permeates with nostalgia, reminding me of all sorts of halcyon days." - Ear To The Ground

"...fills the listener with a feeling of invigoration by the very nature of its dark clouds as the audience take succour from the inward celebration of what has been and the revelations of what may be to come." - Emerging Indie bands
