"A deeply satisfying listening experience, Verdejo’s instincts are as good as his ears, hands, and heart." - Musicworks Magazine
"Avec ce disque, Verdejo, que l’on sait autant virtuose sur les cordes de nylon de la guitare classique que sur les cordes métalliques amplifiées, démontre bien son parti pris pour la création."- Revue Circuit. Musiques Contemporaines
"Modern Hearts by Adrian Verdejo delivers all the accuracy, precision, and interpretive genius of a top notch classical musician mixed with the raw energy, flare, and recording prowess of the modern electric guitarist. This album is a sonic world of wonders! A must hear for new music enthusiasts and general listeners alike." - This is Classical Guitar
"...a most auspicious debut" - The Georgia Straight
“Verdejo is a musician’s musician not just for his virtuosity, but for his uncompromising commitment to following the muse wherever it may go.” – The Vancouver Observer
