"This singer with the sweet, sweet, feel-good voice looks like one of those charachetrs with just eough grit so you know he could, if push came to regrettable shove, knock you off your pins in one punch. This centeriing hangs behond his songs, some wistful, some ironic, and iin his acoustic/electric accompaniment."
Cat Ballou, Woodstock Times, June 13, '96

"Ivan Gilllis, who opened the fourth season at the Accord Train Station, is very musical and extremely talented. He avoids cliche. His lyrics are beautifully crafted. Ivan is worth hearing."
Philip Farber, Daily Freeman, June 7, '96

"The excellent, atmospheric score was composed and perfomed by Ivan Rubenstein-Gillis, who drew an interesting mix of sounds and textures from a piano, a Hawaiian slide guitar, and a vitamin bottle."
