Reviews for his latest solo release, "Brave the Strange"
From Portland Radio Project: “Sublime, sweet perfection. One of the most gorgeous and musically sound collections of songs in some time. There's a Bowie-esque vibe to the vocals and the playing by this talented bunch blew me over. in a good way. So good to be in the presence of such sonic beauty”
From 10 Minutes With: “Brave the Strange is hauntingly beautiful”
From HITS In The Sticks: “An unavoidable presence you don’t want to turn away from.
From "In Music We Trust" "With his enchanting voice and delicately beautiful words, Wynia delivers the intensity and passion that Floater fans have grown to love, without the loud rock behind him, which is no small feat for any songwriter, especially one so acclaimed and revered by his adoring rock fans.
