Some reviews:

"pretty difficult not to fall for this catchy little beauty......the word 'authentic' comes to mind, but not 'ancient'. ... music with a modern sensibility that seems quite consistent with contemporary 'freak folk' bands like Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers.... "

"Instrumental performance is delivered with skill and passion.... Harmonies in the chorus are to die for.... Draws reference from anachronistic forms of traditional roots oriented music (folk, bluegrass), but sounds wholly contemporary...."

"Wonderful stuff. I'm a fan!"

-TAXI, the World's leading independent A&R Company

"Light, breezy, traditional and interesting.....This is a CD for a nice day, or when you wish it was.... This self-titled CD has fine playing, and especially good, all-original songwriting....they mix their guitar parts seamlessly... "

"This is a CD that brings an older country feel into today’s world, with expert production and string work."

-Dave Howell, The Morning Call
