"Each song on Greater Lakes has its own life, and each is beautiful in its own way. As a whole, it’s a terrific effort that withstands repeated listens thanks to the craftsmanship of the songs, as well as the mix of tempos and styles." -Alternative Press

“Winsome and pastoral, Bears’ music stays just this side of too cute, with twittering keyboards and melt-in-your-ears vocals. The band… spins strummy confections that always seem to be on the verge of drifting away. If Guided by Voices finished their tunes, they might’ve been Bears.”- SPIN Magazine

"Their warm pop melodies are a perfect remedy for the winter blahs."

"...fleshed out with strings and bells and all manner of things, making positive comparisons to bands like Belle and Sebastian or even The Shins both inevitable and deserved."-- I Rock Cleveland

The band has many famous fans, too, having toured with CAMERA OBSCURA, TILLY AND THE WALL, MATT & KIM and many more.
