"Genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music for this century. And it sounds even better this century.” - T Bone Burnett

"From the first rolling guitar notes, carrying sadness and defiance like dust, this sweeps me up: I want to know everything about where that feeling came from, and where it's going.” - Greil Marcus (Pitchfork)

"Some of the best songwriting I've heard in years." - Ryan Bingham (No Depression)

"Absolutely brilliant" - Anthony Wall (BBC 6)

"Distinctly American rock 'n' roll. Throaty, firin' on all cylinders, road trip rock, charged with intense composition choices that call to mind the history of roots music, from Chuck Berry and Tom Waits to The War On Drugs." - Greg Vandy (American Standard Time)

"Straight up blue-collar rock and roll in the style of Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp." - Chris Griffy (AXS)

"Anthemic guitar hooks and a heartland sense of urgency that’s tailor-made for road trips and late-night parties beneath a field of brilliant stars." - Steve Wildsmith (Daily Times)
