"Superstar on stage" - Anna Hartley - The Queensland Times.

"This is the real deal. Rarely does an album ever drop on my desk from a complete unknown and knock me out. You must hear it." - Paul Cashmere, Noise 11

"Andy Jans-Brown & COZMIC are all heart and you can hear it in their music which has bags of soul." - Nick Baldrian - Fireworks Magazine U.K

"Just listened to the new double album 'Sunshine Avenue' - amazing, you'll be singing along to the title track before its three minutes and 35 seconds have expired. If justice prevails, Jans-Brown should become more familiar with the world's music consumers.4.5 out of 5 for me."
Geoff Helisma from The Clarence Valley Review

"Sophisticated Rock. Excellent Musicianship". Dave Graney of 3RRR Melbourne

"Compassionate, sensitive, and soulful lyrics imbued with life’s experiences, Jans-Brown is certainly forging an exceptional musical path with superstar stamped all over it, laced with soul and deep insights of life, his words shoot at the heart and touch a chord within."
