Rootsy would be reductive but not entirely false, for embedded into Ré’s brand of indie-folk are flavors of busking Americana and Canadian coffee houses.

--Kevin Carr, "Into the Mystic with Dario Ré," Behind the Setlist

Listening to Aspen Artichoke, it's obvious that the sparse arrangements have been painstakingly, carefully considered. From the opening track "Artery of America," with its delicately finger-picked acoustic guitar and snatches of lush vocal harmonies and violin, to the sprawling closer "Children of the Sun," you get the sense that one of Ré's musical tenets is that less is often so much more.

--Nathan Weinbender, "A Tale of Two Cities," Inlander
