Album Release Tour Plays The Side Door in Old Lyme, CT Friday May 8 and Nighttown in Cleveland, OH Saturday May 9
PRAISE FOR JON REGEN’S STOP TIME
"Great, great playing and vocals, infectious soulful grooves… Stop Time never stops pleasing the ears."
Chuck Leavell, THE ROLLING STONES
“His sturdy songs, pleasing tenor and seven-foot grand are a captivating combination... these songs are made for the repeat button.”
Steven Wine, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
“a confident, soulful singer…"
Eric Danton, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
"FOUR STARS. A pianist who started out in jazz, Jon Regen has gone on to establish himself as a master of smart, sturdily melodic pop with some rootsy shades - a cross between, say, Billy Joel and Randy Newman.”
Nick Cristiano, THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
"FOUR STARS. Throughout it all, Regen is the star: possessing a sly wit and nimble touch, he slides into lyrical solos without losing sight of his songs, a skill that gives this album a rich, lasting resonance."
Stephen Thomas Erlewine, ALLMUSIC.COM
"When songwriter Jon Regen was married last year, his wedding song was a tune co-written by Chaka Khan and Bruce Hornsby. That’s a useful way to think about Regen’s own sound: equal parts gliding melody and bar-room blues; soul and swing. Regen’s new record Stop Time gets an extra shot of grit, featuring members of Elvis Costello’s band the Imposters."
John Schaefer, WNYC SOUNDCHECK
