“Townes Van Zandt once said, when asked why he wrote sad songs,’I don’t write sad songs,I write help less songs.’ Karchmer takes it one step further: his songs reek of desperation, misery and total uselessness. The boy has lived a hell of a life, done somethings that he probably shouldn’t have, and been through some stuff that he’d probably rather not have (including being homeless at one point; I hope that’s not the case now). Each and everyone of these songs reflects that. And each and every one grabs your attention, pulls at your heart strings and draws you in, then whispers in your ear’you WILL love me. ‘Put simply, the man is an amazing song writer, with a fine voice, and a fair bit of guitar playing ability.”-Mark Kinton,God is in the TV.
