“Pictures From Eden is THE alternative rock band to watch of the decade. With their ever growing arsenal of songs, PFE captures all that was great about the late 90′s rock scene while maintaining their own contemporary, edgy identity. This band’s combination of honest, heart provoking lyrics, emotionally engaging vocals and hard driving al fresco roots guitar themes are guaranteed to hold your playlist hostage. PFE is set to fill the void in an industry that is hungry for music that can grab hold of any audience while avoiding the empty and tragic snare of commercialism. You will like their recorded music but you will come to absolutely love the individual parts that are the sum of PFE when you see them perform live. Their synergy and passionate performance will engage your heart and soul as they do nothing less than pour out theirs”- Lisa Morgan Coachella Valley Weekly
