"From Steely Dan to Bruce Hornsby to Sting...Joni Mitchell to Norah Jones, there was that special something that each had; a constant striving for the nuances that made them artists and not just musicians. Add Laurence Elder to that list."    
- Michael Fagien, JAZZIZ Magazine 

"Laurence Elder’s new CD: “Walk Another Mile” could also be sub-titled: Songs of Love, Loss, Life and Light. Laurence is indeed a bright presence on the Pop/Jazz Crossover scene as a singer, songwriter, lyricist, pianist, keyboard artist, and producer with a unique gimmick: He’s a Musician! I was first introduced to his music by the great pianist/composer Kenny Werner, who raved about his first release “Surrounded,” and on this album Laurence continues his journey with songs that draw you in with their imagery, melodicism and wonderful harmonic motion."
- Multi-GRAMMY Winner Randy Brecker 

"With the integration of voice, words, and possibly the hippest harmony to be featured in a so-called "commercial" album in a long time  (reminding me of of what I used to LOVE about pop music), Laurence Elder emerges as a force, not just a piano player."
 - GRAMMY Nominated Kenny Werner

"The old adage “Good things come to those who wait” holds true, because while fans of Laurence Elder have waited a long time to hear new music from him, there’s no doubt they’re going to be extremely pleased with these new compositions."              
- Rick Such, Inside MusiCast

"His voice, deep as tarnished silver, seeps right into the soul."
-ADLIB Magazine, JAPAN

"On this album (Surrounded) I found all that has been missing in music these days. Great sound and melodies plus excellent musicianship. Whenever I listen to this CD, I'm always happy, even when listening to the sad ballads...thank you Laurence. It is through people such as yourself that I get my everyday energy and spirit for life. God Bless!"
