On 2003's 'I Will Not Break Your Heart':
“…such a lovely and very very pretty track [Skip the Flowers]. Put it on for the first time yesterday and the track started and I thought ‘Oh, that’s nice!’, and as it got going I found myself sort of sucked into it. Lovely lyrics too…and by all accounts, he’s wonderful live.”
- Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 - London, UK
"...pure pop melodies, richly detailed lyrics, and the kind of hooks that hits are made of.”
- Larry Flick, Billboard Magazine - NYC
"Singh's subject matter is urban and heartfelt -- he humbly explores personal relationships, chance situations and slice-of-life subtleties with the ease of a gentle breeze.”
- Kevin Hainey, EYE Magazine - Toronto
“This is a CD filled with humor, sweetness, intelligence and originality. He could have also called it “I will not write anything boring or predictable” Makes me really look forward to each song because I can’t wait to hear what he is going to come up with next.”
- The Muses’ Muse - USA
"It's not often that a wordy writer with clever narratives is able to shape them into great songs but Toronto singer/songwriter pulls it off with amazing aplomb.”
- Michael Barclay, Exclaim! Magazine - Toronto
"Steve Singh…possessed of a warm voice and a lyrical dexterity as capable of compassion as it is scathing bite.”
- Mike Davies, Birmingham 101 - Birmingham, UK.
"Ignore the album title 'I Will Not Break Your Heart', Steve Singh's album of the same name will do exactly that! Lyrical, romantic and simply moving…"
- Jacquelyn Francis, Umbrella Music
"This is an album that you're guaranteed to play again and again until you have all the words memorized and are singing along with all your might. This entire album is great."
