“Rosen, who accompanies on piano and guitar, has a James Taylor-like talent for setting intimate lyrics over facile, catchy melodies.... Don’t miss this…” Bloomberg News
“... a fine and sometimes somber portrait of heartbreak and survival, joy and its absence, and love that endures even when the objects of that love are long vanished." Chicago Tribune
“...the songs are as intelligent as they are soulful, appealing to the brain as much as the heart. ... A musical saga of generations and the joy, pain, love and death they've experienced …. a performance of elegance, sensibility and passion.” Cabaret Scenes
"Consider the case of Louis Rosen ... and his nostalgic, romantic, emotionally charged song cycle, 'South Side Stories....'" Chicago Sun-Times
“Rosen's protean talents are obvious to all but the oblivious. ... [He] does more than talk a good game; he writes it, composes it and performs it, too.” The Jewish Exponent
