The critics like "From The Fringes" :
Indie Artists Alliance: "9/10" "a good time record with spiritual layers and should be heralded as a gem. . . . really hits a home run . . . a barnburner. It’s an amazing ride . . . "
Skope: "Big Tribe could reach out to multitudes with great meaning . . . It’s a real breath of fresh air to hear messages that have more substance than what is presently on my radio."
Indie Music Digest: "rocks steady . . . many impressive songs back to back . . . trippy Singer/Songwriter, R&B fused Alternative Rock with a fun and eccentric Psychedelic, Indie College Rock flair . . . this CD has something for just about everyone . . . a zany, fun, compelling musical journey."
Music Emissions: "catchy, well-crafted songs with lyrics that connect with the good in everyone . . . Radio-friendly songs that stay with you long after the first listen . . . a supernova of passion and sound exploding into your soul, a game changer in a world that needs a new musical direction."
Indie Musicians Artists Digital Radio Network: "soulful sound and clever musical antics . . . a true to form return of psychedelic writing style wrapped around catchy playing style with a hooky feel that flows. It’s passionate, intricate music but goes well beyond decent chops . . . one walks away feeling that they listened to something a little truer than accustomed . . . Here’s one artist that has the courage to write, play, and release music that goes a bit against the modern pop-rock grain but will remind you just how bad modern day music has really gotten . . . Big Tribe led by Peter Panyon is trying to break this mold because they are the real deal."
Vents Magazine: "Stocked full of hooks and a jovial playing style that never lets its guard down, to melodies which linger long after the playing has passed . . . 11 buoyant and inventive tracks which play like new adventures, yet approaches them like old friends you feel you’ve known for a long time . . . pleasantly embraces the ears and is in a league all by itself with an elite spirit of eagerness and vibrancy . . . It offers many musical familiarities, wearing those inspirations proudly on its sleeve showcasing eclectic musical influences hinged on impressive musicianship and a unique signature sound . . . This is one of the most uplifting artists I’ve heard in quite some time . . . As the CD slowly advances the melodies, addictive hooks return sporadically from time to time with a beckoning potency far away from the mediocre mainstream. Bottom there’s something much more tangible about this release compared to most of the CD’s that slide across my desk this year . . . a good 11-track listen any way you slice it. It’s a ripe musical invitation into the world of a red hot songwriter from the DC area. At the least it will satisfy many, thus filling the void left by millions of band who cannot dive this deep – not even close. This outlier style of music is not only mastered by Big Tribe, it also deserves a much wider and attentive audience to say the least."
