"Kiermyer plays with volcanic authority." Dan Ouellette / DOWN BEAT

"...he is a polyrhythmic whirlwind ... this is the real thing – marvelous, powerfully affirmative music." Bill Tilland / OPTION

“I FEEL THAT MUSIC CAN OPEN OUR AWARENESS. THAT’S WHAT I WANT THE MUSIC TO DO. I THINK WE ALL COME FROM SOMEPLACE POWERFUL. WE JUST NEED TO FIND THAT PLACE INSIDE. MY GOAL IS TO REST IN THAT OPENNESS AND LET GO. THE MORE I PRACTISE THIS, THE MORE MY NATURAL FAITH DEVELOPS. THE MUSIC FINDS ITS STRENGTH IN THAT. THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO SHARE.” FK

"...enough to make you believe that music can still be frightening as well as sacred." John Szwed / THE VILLAGE VOICE

"His writing is fiercely primal and his drumming ferocious – unbridled." Fred Bouchard / JAZZIZ

"Kiermyer plays (and composes) with an almost evangelical belief in jazz as a form of pure inspiration." David Hajdu / ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
