"Honey I Love You...feels like a Raymond Carver short story. There's so much truth to it...The truth is found in the words...There's a simplicity to it."
Iaan Hughes, KBCS
"Fernandez' voice is central and upfront throughout Fall Apart, letting the already resonant lyrics connect even more. And the execution is nothing short of immaculate, with a vocal performance that is as confident as it is authentic. The result is audacious and unapologetic offering of songs...."
Elijah Dhavvan, Rain City Collective
