“Surprising...they have a vitality and good sensibilities...outstanding vocals.”
“The band is strong in every way...heavy. They rock big!”
“A truculent brand of potent pop country”
“I like the guitar sound and the overall groove of the recording. Blackgrass is growing on me!”
“Bluegrass reflexes, original pop songs, rock 'n roll attitude, and the folk and soul style of three incredible vocalists. How would you describe such music? Blackgrass calls is "electrified acoustic rock and soul" and so far, nobody's stopping them. In the fall of 2010, Jerad Harness released his sophomore album "The Get Down", and the world at large was introduced to their singular - and memorable - sound.
A well-meaning fan once described Jerad Harness and Blackgrass as "the bluegrass Backstreet boys." The band laughed. But one can't be blamed for appreciating memorable hooks, lush harmonies and, let's face it, devastating good looks. For the record, Blackgrass prefers to equate their multi harmony sound to a modern Eagles or Crosby, Stills and Nash.”
"This is the new wave of Mid-Western-Fried rock"
“Jerad Harness is like a lion tamer barely focusing and containing the wild power of his band Blackgrass. It is quite a sight to behold.”
