DRAMATIC, QUAVERING TENOR
“Cartier's dramatic, quavering tenor often finds him hammering away at the same vowel of a syllable, trying to squeeze every ounce of feeling possible from the word... the music works beautifully.”

“He looks like a modern primitive but writes emotional songs that are heart-wrenching in their classic pop style, since he continually embellishes his best Top 40 instincts with an unmistakable pure sense of the outsider's way of life.”
- NEW YORK PRESS
COOL, SOULFUL VOICE
“The cool, soulful voice with which he renders his songs is unforgettable. The tattoo on his shaved pate is fairly memorable too.”
