What the Critics are Saying - "Can She Stay" 

Can She Stay is a beautiful song, exuding a contagious, elegantly refined melody, along with emotive lyrics and Sy’s hushed mellow voice. It’s the perfect song for a Hollywood romantic drama. I’ve downloaded it to my playlist, it’s that good. Don’t miss this one!" - The Huffington Post (9.6.17)

Can She Stay is a powerful and poignant ode to daughters getting ready to start a new journey with the people they are about to pledge their love and lives to, but at the same time provides an affected look at the bittersweet emotions of a father in the contrasting throes of wanting to hang on and having to let go. Peloso and Sy do a magnificent job of bringing the melodrama of the moment to the fore without leaning on too many clichés." - JamSphere (8.11.17)

Peloso and Sy 's "Can She Stay" is "definitely another highlight display of the true craft of songwriting, full of emotion expressed through the beautiful perspective of a father learning to let his daughter grow up, despite his reservations." - SleepingBagStudios (7.23.17)

What the Critics are Saying about "Alive"

" Alive,” with Natalie Jean featuring Michael Peloso, is a stand-out example of Peloso’s exceptional talent as a song writer and, with the expressive and artistic interpretation of the award-winning indie sensation Natalie Jean, this track comes to life creating a unique music experience. - Indie Spoonful (6.29.17)

"When music is written and performed from the heart, it somehow brings a sense of connection to the artists involved, without even needing to physically see them, as their confident delivery and warm execution is enough to ground you in.

Such is the case with Natalie Jean and one of New Jersey’s finest singer songwriters – Michael Peloso and their revitalizing single “Alive” which features the awe inducing vocals of songstress Natalie Jean." - Oddfuse (6.27.17)
