    Evening of Light (Netherlands) says of Anchored:

    DeRosa effortlessly shifts musical gear and delivers a celebration of song in a very pure form. There aren’t that many concrete genre trappings here, though classic American pop from early last century is a prominent one, and it sounds perfectly at home in 2011, at least in this form. No need for any specific target-group recommendations here. This is simply a beautiful release, so go have a listen. I hope it is a precursor of more to come.

    For all of you longtime listeners, you’ll be pleased to know that this week also marks the digital reissue of both Dead Leaves Rising albums, Shadow Complex (1997) and Waking Up On The Wrong Side Of No One (2001). Both of these albums have been out-of-print for close to a decade. You can download them direct from Silber Records, CD Baby, Itunes, and all other digital outlets.

    From Acoustic Guitar Magazine back in 1997:

    Jon De Rosa takes gothic melancholia into the folk realm on his debut, a collection of gloomy songs that grapple with concepts of faith. Graceful arpeggios and lilting chord sequences are accompanied on different tunes by an interesting array of elements: mournful electric guitar, hand percussion, drum kit, viola, harp, and keyboards. De Rosa’s bass vocals possess a theatrical quality that offers a nice contrast to his acoustic six-string, and he sustains a balance of light and dark that keeps the songs compelling.
