“This one scores very high on the likability index with an above average height on the quality scale and should be worth a listen for fans of straight up American roots rock music.”
“Finally, something is working in DC”
“Expanding on their garage-rock meets Americana sound, Weddings and Funerals features haunting lyrics, music rooted in blues and folk, and melodic, soulful vocal work.”
“Bells and Hunters has managed to create an album that walks a perfect line of glorious angst…that feeling of emotion, tension, and perhaps resignation as you realize that perhaps things aren’t what you thought they were and it’s time to move on.”
“Bells and Hunters wastes no time announcing that they are something different.”
“The Deli Magazine Artist of the Month April 2013”
"Adele-styled vocals with genuine emotion...strong, fast-paced rock....tight construction in the songs....not a note out of place."
"Bluesy rock with plenty of funk moves and other sonic shifts......effectively creates a rock environment perfect for weekend rockers wanting to cut loose."
"Best Local Band" (3rd Place) - 2012 Washington City Paper 'Best of DC' Annual Readers Poll
“B&H's new EP takes you for a ride - Kelly's vocal style is part soul, part Nashville, but totally captivating. Tracks 1-3 find you foot tapping, smiling, and happy. Then Morning Biscuit comes on and slaps you in the face - Fischer's hard-charging vocals take you to a different place, with the solid guitar licks and crunches. This is an eclectic band that defies genres...they are on permanent rotation on my Itunes list and I look forward to more out of this talented band.”
“I received a preview of Stoplight and Party Host about a bit ago. The scuffed silk vocals blew me completely away. They were put into serious rotation and I've been jonesing for another hit since.”
