"...'Stateside' is gorgeous, with lush instrumentation highlighted by his intricate interlacing of fretwork, pedal steel, and cello. (Norsworthy) upends folk-rock conventions with a plaintive voice, playful phrasing, and strange guitar tunings that hark back to folk forebears like Nick Drake (but are also infused with the pop sensibilities of Nick Lowe)."
"His dynamic acoustic guitar playing, expressive voice and thoughtful lyrics put him in an elite class of singer/songwriters who are engaging and provocative musicians, much more so then their merely pleasant-to-listen-to brethren."

"Strange guitar tunings, intricate fretwork, harmonic punctuations and wispy fragments of broken chords accompanied a voice that was plaintive one moment, ethereal the next...Norsworthy's brooding lyrical excursions into the undercurrents of love lost and found, cosmic compassion and social indifference underscore his intensely personal vision."
