"McKenzie often conveys his songs in story form that leads the listener to the possibility of two-fold meanings. Today's release is thought-provokingly titled 'Higher Than This,' exhibits his writing skills, along with video imagery that lends itself to speak of a story creating strong, reflective emotions. These observations can bring forward a self-awareness that either soothingly imparts itself to hope or leads to the somber realities of dealing with a loss and moving on. As with many of McKenzie’s songs, the perspective his fans take from his music and video work depends on where the listener is in their own world." - Paste Magazine
