““Jon Hogan and Maria Moss are keeping traditional American mountain music alive in a way that engages, informs, and is a lot of fun for the listener.” The Honorable John Cook, Mayor of El Paso, Tx. , in his “Key to the City “ award speech”
El Paso Mayor John Cook
"There's a lot going on when Jon sings and plays. When Maria joins him, it's so complete that it's hard to imagine a universe with more stars in it. I can assure you that any good musician who has heard Jon Hogan and Maria Moss has marveled at them."" Jonathan Byrd, Carrboro, North Carolina, “One of the 50 Most Important Songwriters of the Past 50 Years” (Chicago Tribune)
"They play their hearts out at every single gig. Scorch Folk they call it, and yes it's hot, but I call it ‘New Timey’ music, old-time music with a very approach. They are fantastic and I'll stand on Steve Earle’s coffee table and say that.”
Claude "Butch" Morgan
"My favorite band!....It’s a joy to just sit back and watch them go. Wow!"
Lone Star Music Magazine
"One of the most entertaining duos I've ever seen…Hogan's lyrics, and Moss's incredible finger picking are something that everyone needs to see.....Get out to see this band as soon as you can."
““Three new Blaze Foley/Hogan co-writes are gems. In Hogan’s respectful hands, Foley’ bygone pensive wisdom comes alive… “Can’t Always Cry” expertly captures the soul and simplicity that distinguished Foley’s best work, while “Safe in the Arms of Love,” beautifully augmented by Maria Moss’s fingerpicking…”
Texas Music Magazine
““...a first-rate show..complementing each other with their collective story-telling, harmonies, and guitar-picking styles…"
"Poetic, exciting, sometimes sad but above all beautiful" Altcountryforum, Netherlands
"Hogan and Moss were… Exhilarating…fun, heartbreaking, wild, crazy, epic, microcosmic, toe-tapping, head-nodding, gut busting, soul searching... By the end, they had made us live an extra year of our lives in a couple of hours."
The Navasota Current
““They could have been dropped in the 1920s with Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and the like without ever turning a head. Their set was fun from beginning to end. The music bounced….kept the audience enthralled and the songs shined. A major highlight of the set were the songs Hogan performed from lyrics he received that belonged to the late Blaze Foley. Those who love Townes Van Zandt are also huge fans of Blaze Foley, so hearing some new words from this legendary songwriter was a definitely treat.”
