- “Matt Hopper does rock and roll right. [He] has a very natural ear for memorable melodies and irresistible guitar riffs; great songs seem to pour out of him.” – Ben Salmon, Bend Bulliten
- “Matt Hopper is a dead ringer for 1971″ – Ken Stringfellow, The Posies”With their jangling guitars, slippery basslines, smooth violin and keyboard and light, steady drumming, Hopper and company would’ve sounded right at home on classic rock radio next to Bob Seger and the Doobie Brothers.” – B. Schulz, Here Comes The Dumptruck
- “Although this songwriter recently relocated to Idaho, Matt Hopper cut his teeth in our most northern state, which would lead to the wiry, blues-flavored tracks on the 2011 album Jersey Finger. Hopper is a Tom Petty dead-ringer on “Send/Receive,” and he spends the rest of Jersey Finger drumming up nostalgia for listeners of many generations.” – Taylor Kane, 9 Alaskan Acts You Should Listen To Now, Paste Magazine
