Dowhan crafts an intimate balance of songs driven by rhythmic guitar, intertwined with emotive narratives of cluelessness of love. He varies from slow, acoustic ballads to upbeat acoustic-pop songs, reminiscent of Jason Mraz and Matt Nathanson.

"Of the many performers we have had on our stage, Carson is in that elite group who not only have the talent and enthusiasm to put on a great performance, but also the professionalism and drive to make a career of it. Fortunately, he has the songwriting skills to back it up too!" -Nicholas Taylor, Up the Creek Records

"Only the Moon connects with us all as listeners because we each have our own coming of age story, which Dowhan seemed to tap into mostly. There are some real shining moments that he should hang onto if ever he performs live on the road." -Divide and Conquer Music

"Dowhan's apologetically nostalgic lyrics remind us that it's okay to let go of what's behind. With a catchy rhythm to drive Wild Eyes forward, listeners will be dancing their way out of summer and straight into fall." -Maxine Barrios Music Reviews

"Carson expresses beautifully crafted folk lyrics accompanied by one of the catchiest pop tunes to come along in a long time."

-Drew Carson, General Manager Radio Haver

"Carson Dowhan created the song [Wild Eyes] with the perfect blend of a classic Indie-Rock style and Pop."- The After Hours Review
