"Alan’s lyrics are often literary (he studied literature in college), but have simplicity and poetry at heart. This aspect mirrors some early influences: Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, David Bowie. His lyrics and sound seat Alan’s music alongside contemporary artists like Big Thief, Deer Tick, Andrew Bird, and Lady Lamb."

"Getto‘s guitar-driven, simple melodies act as a backbone for the lyrical emphasis in his music. Having studied literature, theology, and philosophy in college, his lyrics pay homage to these intense, existential topics, but with a unique, irreverent spin."

"Getto’s simple acoustic number is soft, sweet, and easy to pick-up on. The melody is familiar like a lullaby or, more fittingly, a campfire sing-along."
