"Lonely Road is absolutely lovely. It is a joy to have Liam McKahey back." - Pennyblackmusic "essential listening" -Netrhythms " like Nick Cave, the Triffids, Tendrils and Beasts of Bourbon. There's atmosphere and drive on Lonely Road" - Americana UK "I found myself singing the opening title track and a further listen was almost epiphanal as the beauty languorously revealed itself."-Rock n Reel "It's a divinely dark, cinematic outing full of beauty" - Whisperin and Hollerin "a cast-iron beauty with Brown's keening guitar and McKahey's impeccable vocal" - MusicOMH "I've been struggling to pick highlights, because the album is so strong, but `Lovers & Fools' `Inscription' and `Unheeded Tidings' are particularly special. Other singer-songwriters are just not in his league." - 17 Seconds "his classy gravitas is just as suited to tender love songs.

The album Lonely Road is available from Amazon and direct from Series 8. The songs can be downloaded from iTunes and Amazon.
“Lonely Road is a collection of ten songs from the darker side of alt.country – think Burt Bacharach meets Nick Cave. McKahey's strong, distinct voice is particularly well showcased on the second track Unheeded Tidings which chronicles the emotional downfall of a young man and is interspersed with some great fiddle playing by Joe Peet. Overall Lonely Road is a good album and should appeal to anyone who is a fan of Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Calexico or Puerto Muerto.”
