“At times, Lipinski’s voice soars like a young Roy Orbison, at others he can float like Jackson Browne, but it is all his own. He knows what a hook is and goes looking for it in each song, not permitting any padding to make its way into his set. Whatever it is a performer requires to be able to hush a crowd and make it stop and listen, Lipinski has it. Perhaps it’s a poise or, more accurately, a naturalism which is impossible to fake”.
