"This compassionate album is for all children." Excerpt from "School Library Journal," Beverly Wrigglesworth, formerly of San Antonio Public Library, TX (for the full review and more reviews press the red button)
"Steve Pullara’s latest CD is a fun and organic mix of songs and stories that follow a boy confined to his wheelchair. Throughout his summer vacation he's doing the things that all kids do like swimming, fishing, making new friends, the mystery of hiccups, even whale watching! Steve is quite good at keeping it fun and entertaining, while delivering a great message to everyone about love and acceptance. The standout track to me is “My Buddy”. Well, umm, I guess that would be because I co-wrote the song with Steve! Well done, my friend!!" Tab Laven – Nashville based singer/songwriter/guitarist for Art Garfunkel

"Steve Pullara tackles a serious and sensitive topic of guns and school shootings in this song from a child’s perspective. The gentle soothing piano draws us into an energetic song filled with rambling slide guitar and emotive voice that stretches words out like “said” that give more punch and meaning to the message. As an expert in writing music for kids, kudos to Pullara for this thought provoking tune that can help promote a healing and safe dialogue about these issues." Cyndy Drue, Radio Personaility, of WMGK-FM Radio Philadelphia on August 21, 2019
"I don’t know about you, but as a parent and grandparent I’ve reached my limit of heartless commentary surrounding school shootings that never address what our children are having to (sadly) learn to navigate the real nightmares they face going to school each morning. That is until I listened to singer-songwriter Steve CoolBeans Pullara new single "Flowers For My Friends." Listeners, children and parents alike will feel their spirits lift while feelings are validated all while their minds and bodies will feel comforted. I'm a believer that music is therapeutic and heals. Mr Pullara is preaching to this choir yet again in this latest song." (for the full review and more reviews press the red button)
DJ Toni Taylor-Helser of Mixstream Radio, Oregon, July 19, 2019
"When it comes to being out in front of the musical curve tackling tough issues, Steve Pullara leads the pack and his new single “Flowers For My Friends” offers a meaningful look at gun violence and kids."
"These sort of songs are perhaps the hardest to write and most artists won’t even attempt them, but most artists are not Steve Pullara! “Flowers For My Friends” provides a fresh look at a major problem in America that should inspire many to open up and talk about real solutions."
