“It’s one fine album” – Ben Fong-Torres (Live365.com radio)
“Don’t buy this excellent album if you’re not open to a program that has roots in country and blues but zigzags all over the musical map. This largely acoustic string band—which formed on the West Coast during the pandemic—evokes artists from multiple decades over the last century and embraces everything from indie-rock and Americana to Celtic, Motown, and Western swing. If you need a reference point, look to bands like Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks and Asleep at the Wheel, whose records also draw on disparate sources.” – Jeff Burger, Americana Highways (also at The Aquarian.com, Blogcritics.org)
