JIMnI / Press

“The spooky harmonies the duo sings show they are well-matched and tight, and Steiner’s emotional lead brings depth. Although Santilli could easily overpower this one, the sound is understated and just right. “Rusted Crosses,” inspired by the crosses along Highway 93, opens slowly with a bluesy, almost ominous feel. Steiner’s adept guitar work and harmonica lead the way on a tune that morphs into trouble at 3 a.m.: “The reaper man’s been here too many years in a row.” Way-cool bent vocal notes from both singers here!”

“The rustic guitars, folksy vocals, and stripped-down production showcase the duo’s strongest abilities of musicianship...the vocals and guitar reach a magical place that is earthy, but surprisingly heavenly... oozes with folksy charm and lyrics that can only be invented with creative intelligence.”

"JIMnI's debut CD…features sparse production that never gets in the way of Santilli's soaring vocals and Steiner's warm, baritone pipes…and excellent guitar fretwork. Santilli's rich, expressive alto lead[s] the way…[with] spot-on inflections, a ton of control and a fine, husky sound. The spooky harmonies…are well-matched and tight, and Steiner's emotional lead brings depth. "Rusted Crosses"…opens with a bluesy, almost ominous feel. Steiner's adept guitar work and harmonica lead the way…Way-cool bent vocal notes from both singers here! Santilli plays expressive piano on the pretty, bittersweet "Pictures" and "Kiss My Ass" is a Dylan-esque story poem, replete with harmonica and Steiner's pleading vocal. Once again, they cook on their complementary vocal style here! There's a lot more to the album, and good production lets the artists shine at what they do best."
