“...gorgeous vocals cut through the mix” – Kevin Selby of the Kevin Selby Experience in Washington, DC.    All members have an extensive musical background and they use this expertise to create interesting music with funky beats, distinctive riffs and powerful vocals.  "...the original material showed much more maturity than age of the band members and much more maturity in song writing and structure than most of the bands in the 88.5 Big Money Shot (including some of the finalists)"- Ala Qadi, Live Music Metropolis.   - “young, fresh and talented...can easily describe Ottawa band Full Tipped Sleeve.”- Sabine Gibbins, EMC Ottawa.     "They have a stage presence that is like bands that have been playing together for many years ... I was impressed, and it is not easy for me to get impressed by underground local bands."-  Live Music Metropolis
