“‘Blanton Ravine’ begins with the metallic debris of a noisy sound collage work before slowly ascending into a songform that pulls in rhythmic edits, soulful vocals, and horn arrangements. This happens throughout the first album by Public Speaking, the project of Brooklyn artist Jason Anthony Harris, but it gets no less thrilling as the record eventually runs past the hour mark… That this is Harris’ debut full-length is most surprising: he crafts coherent songs out of abstract processes and R&B from the tools of noise with the assured vision of an expert… As a whole, “Blanton Ravine" is a thrilling melange of found sound and pop music." - Experimedia

"The soulful noise of Public Speaking’s debut full-length Blanton Ravine is being talked up as a masterful meld of sound collage and sexy pop sensibilities.” - Nashville Scene

"...a pop artist with an experimental edge, his debut album has plenty of unique perspectives to explore. The album, Blanton Ravine, shares some DNA with My Life in the Bush of Ghosts and Bowie’s Low." - Nashville Cream
