Eli & Bill Perras / Press

““Eli sings tunefully without folderol or affectation. One can practice for a lifetime and not achieve this rare vocal quality, which I think is due to character, upbringing and personal straightforwardness, plus an innate musicality. Pete Seeger has this, and maybe Odetta. You can't buy it. But I'm proud to say that these days I'm capable of knowing it when I hear it, which is the next best thing to having it myself. Bill shares this honest vocal quality, although I'll say that I felt more ready to appreciate him after the lady so ably set the vocal tone. He's charming and gruff and fun to listen to. And, oh, his guitar playing: such a pleasure to hear. This gentleman knows what he's doing and clearly has been doing it for a long long time. His touch is absolutely secure; your shoulders relax when you realize he's going to pull off everything he attempts. Their songs are sincere, well made and issue-oriented. Thank God for such honest artists among us!””

“Bill's guitar playing is excellent and crisp, and Eli sing's with a pure joy in her voice. Their songs are memorable, topical, and very enjoyable. Even after so many years, they both still have a fresh, and "new, in the moment" energy that is wonderful!”

"Eli and Bill are very soft-spoken, humble people. Musically the stuff they do is quite polished. It's about as close as anyone, here, comes to recalling, in our time, the authentic sound of traditional American Music."

“Runnin' Outta' Georgia CD Review: This is a collection of topical songs that point to the social issues that frustrate us every day, from corporate injustice to the homeless, from political inaction to stereo-types, and prejudice. Each song thoughtfully brings the human condition to light and most offer a silver lining, the possibility of change if we get off our butts and reach out to each other. Hopefully their "blues" will get us.”
