"An architect of sound, carefully creating his songs from a vast warehouse of melodic material... [The] songs create a three-dimensional audio space for the listener, with rich, churning melodies below and spare, precise details above, alongside lyrics with heavily visual imagery... The result is a diverse output, including everything from simmering ballads to trotting folk tunes to layered pop songs. What is common throughout, however, is Wettstein’s ability to grab the listener’s attention with details."

"Kris Wettstein brought minimalist music -- a genre that doesn't have the flashiness and catchy tunes of other types of music -- to the stage... As the concert came to a close, audience members said Wettstein left a poignant mark... [One] described Wettstein's music as 'authentic,' explaining that 'he connects with people. He is very vulnerable and honest.'"

"Kris Wettstein writes stunningly beautiful, spacious, at times Noguchi-inspired songs. We will hopefully share a night with them again sometime soon."

"The songwriting project of Kris Wettstein, A Microscope's new album For Nothing Holds You In interprets the experiences of Wettstein's move from San Antonio to Queens. Against the setting of traffic and busy borough life, the album creates a microscopic picture of small sounds and minute changes."
