“There is a deep embedded ache in Bousquet’s voice. You can feel it down in the trenches of his soul and through the crack in his voice.” – Redline Roots “On Into The Light Within Bousquet really separates himself as a songwriter from a very crowded field of excellent songwriters taking up camp in his home state. While he’s not afraid to crank up the electric guitar to prove a song’s point, it’s his more introspective moments, such as on “Gloria” that he really knocks it out of the park.” – Chip McCabe, Lonesome Noise
