What the press is saying about Wakey!Wakey!:

"In a word: Wow. Ear to ear smiles. Seriously good stuff. Trust me." - MTVNews.com Blog

"Mike Grubbs could speak for each and every one of us when he pulls at our heartstrings with tales of lost love and broken spirits. But he's more than just another poetic, tortured soul. Grubbs' combines some beautifully played piano with a voice so striking it resonates around the room galvanising everybody within earshot - both painful and beautiful in equal measure." - Joel Crane (NME)

"Driven by a stern piano bounce -- courtesy of frontman Mike Grubbs -- indie-pop-on-Mozart quintet Wakey!Wakey! are quickly becoming the talk of the Big Apple with rhythm-heavy, heartfelt ballads, and -- most notably -- Grubbs' striking Top 40 pipes. With an audience that ranges easily from wet-eyed punk rockers to stay-at-home moms, Wakey!Wakey! merge old and new, downcast classical renderings and indie rock pop-smarts -- and formulate a dynamic sound all their own." - Spin.com

"His voice is like a smoke alarm in the dead of night: huge, dominant, unable to be ignored, maybe even life-saving." - Pop Headwound
