He [Maleek Berry] really comes into his own as he further proves how he masterfully brings together the different genres that influence him to create music that is beautiful while catchy."
"Emezi’s careful structuring and poetic language provides a pleasing balance to keep us stabilized as we reach toward higher planes. Reading “Freshwater,” then, is akin to letting oneself over to a luminous experience; we are enveloped fully from page one, and leave the novel feeling transformed."
