“this music is the balance between strong, subtle, unexpected, and sophisticated.” - Paste Magazine

“blends Americana melodies with punchy post-punk swagger and a lyrical self-deprecation that channels the wit and attitude of Elvis Costello…. With hints of Bowie’s eclectic pop eccentricities…the track draws out his innate understanding of genre deconstruction and adaptation.”-Beats Per Minute (UK)

“It’s American folk-Rock with a post punk edge, rustic but scarred.” -Alternative Press Magazine
