“July of 2008 GAC featured The Councilmen on their show “The Next GAC Star” by playing part of their homemade video “Boxcar Sermon”. They didn’t make the finals but they did gain the attention of Rodney Powell. “The Councilmen, remember this name! These guys are gonna be big in the music industry. Keaton York is one of the best writers I've seen in a long time! I'm blown away at the dedication and music ability these guys have!” Rodney Powell Drummer - (The Tennessee Three, Randy Travis, Donna Summer)”

“The Councilmen are also featured artists for a new internet music startup LP33, conceived by Andrew Bentley British media entrepreneur and former label executive. Catalina Guirado-Cheadle, Director/SVP Artist Liaison & Development for LP33 would seem to agree, saying the band is getting an “extra push,” because of what she describes as "very strong songwriting, great vocals, and the X-factor. It’s that extra quality that some people have and some people don’t, we just think they’re really different, really special. They have a nonchalant vibe about them.” The site launched in October of 2008.”

““I like a band that doesn’t feel the need to adhere to the confines of a certain genre. The original songs are impressive, penned by York the pounding, sexy build-up of “Cadillac Girl” sends admirers into a frenzy.” The Californian”
