“Beautiful production and such beautiful vibes!” Awake Music.
“Another really solid track from Darien Martus, ‘I'll Wait For You’ features whirling keys, subtle percussion and a steady bass low end. An emotionally charged vocal performance sung with passion and precision. Immersive, heartfelt lyricism. Hits the emotional target it's shooting for. Lovely, rolling melody lines. Audibly well mixed and produced.” Music On the Moon
“Darien Martus’ ‘Hold Me Tonight’ is an ideal, sonic hug to all those “tortured souls”; A song straight from the heart about love in the hardness of life, recorded live at the legendary Sunset Sound. An “adorable” Darien Martus!”
“A dreamy and smooth track” “Brilliant vocals” “A message for the world that is in crux”
Best Futuristic Song, Evolution of the Mind by Darien Martus. “Atypical for the likes of 2022 when most are focused on the grim and dark, Darien Martus went where nobody else had the courage to: in the future. Abiding by a conversational progression of the song’s message, Evolution Of The Mind ponders on heavy, existential matters while suavely and breezily hinting upon probable outcomes if only we got our sh*t together as humans.” Blue Rhymez Entertainment
