"Great, great playing and vocals, infectious soulful grooves… Stop Time never stops pleasing the ears."
Chuck Leavell, THE ROLLING STONES

“These songs are made for the repeat button.”
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

"The oft-noted Randy Newman influence shines through on some ballads, but Regen’s playing and writing have muscle and character of their own..”
THE SUNDAY TIMES

"Regen approaches his themes—getting older, wiser, understanding love, coping with regret—with intelligence and bursts of wit... in a genre whose performers all too often settle for sonic wallpaper, Stop Time brims with rich and occasionally downright surprising rewards for the attentive listener."
PASTE

"Regen is a glorious pianist, a wonderful singer, and the kind of lyricist modern music could use a lot more of… this is probably the most perfectly produced album I've heard since Paul Simon's Graceland... That makes Stop Time the best-produced LP I've heard so far this century; actually, this millennium."
NO DEPRESSION

“a confident, soulful singer…"
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

"FOUR STARS. A pianist who started out in jazz, Jon Regen has gone on to establish himself as a master of smart, sturdily melodic pop with some rootsy shades - a cross between, say, Billy Joel and Randy Newman.”
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

"FOUR STARS. Throughout it all, Regen is the star: possessing a sly wit and nimble touch, he slides into lyrical solos without losing sight of his songs, a skill that gives this album a rich, lasting resonance."

Regen’s music shoots from - and directly into - the heart.”

"Calm down, Jamie Cullum fans: "These Are the Days" isn’t the anthem you know so well. Still, like the rest of this accomplished singer-songwriter set, it has the kind of melodic lilt that ought to appeal to Cullum’s followers. Formerly a pianist with the likes of Jimmy Scott, Regen comes into his own on original material, accompanied by Elvis Costello regulars — the bassist Davey Faragher and the drummer Pete Thomas. The oft-noted Randy Newman influence shines through on some ballads, but Regen’s playing and writing have muscle and character of their own."
