Some Kind Words
sent my way:

Not to be overlooked are whiz-kid composer Kyle Acheson’s musical contributions. Though he doesn’t perform his works live as he did in Fertile Ground’s “The Waterman”, his recorded pieces are credible enough to blend into a mixtape alongside David Byrne and The Pixies.

Both my inner child and outer adult were delighted by the catchy melodies and intricate harmonies in this whimsical piece of original theatre.
— Brett Aresco, Theater is Easy
Kyle Acheson (also an effective actor in various small roles) contributes original music that sets apt tones of grandeur and sadness.
