"Dozier fits all of the adjectives. He is warm, communicative, and polished to a sheen. He sings like a dream and tells cute stories, focusing on the lyrics with musical savvy to back it up. This is a blue-chip, professionally delivered, engaging program by a charming singer. If there is such a thing as an all-around cabaret guy, he is it."
~ Elizabeth Ahlfors, Cabaret Scenes
"Kevin Dozier has a baritone fully stocked with feeling, especially as it lifts into higher-register reaches. Dozier is worth keeping on your radar for several reasons. There''s the voice, of course, but how he deploys the voice is of particular interest."
~ David Finkle, Backstage
"Together, Dozier and Marlowe make a formidable musical team...confidence and joy radiate out of Dozier and he''s a pleasure to watch.
...it''s a testament to Dozier and Marlowe that "Over the Rainbow" is on the of the highlights of the show. Sensitive and understated, and possessing a rapturously gorgeous arrangement, Dozier''s mellifluous reading is astonishing."
