Bright Brown is sonic cinema. Bittersweet layers and textures abound, and beautifully crafted songs exist at the core. Alex Nahas’ songwriting boldly chooses to sit between the meager and the mundane, elevating the everyday.

- The Deli NYC
"...brilliant songs, full of pathos and alienation, but sweetened with strong doses of optimism."
- Greg Howard, Stick.com
“Like David Byrne after a hot bath...”
- Leah Siegel
“...Nahas' voice is heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time, the music layering over and under like sweet and sorrow...”
