The Ragged Orchids / Press

“Beautiful and light on the surface, a closer listen reveals deeper nuances that pay homage to some of Hart's influences- Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, Tom Petty. TRO is not your typical country-pop-candy band. They brilliantly rocked the audience at The Handlebar and revealed smart, sexy, forceful lyrics that tell stories of pain and redemption with true southern style.”

“Hart has always loved good songwriting, and it shows in the high quality of his own relaxed, rootsy, pop-country compositions.”

“Take Neko Case, Tom Petty and blend 'em together with pedal-steel- and harmony-driven Americana that we haven't heard around here in years. Fronted by the his/her vocals of Scott Hart and Carsyn Tennant, the quintet weaves an original, yet familiar sound of Americana/folk-rock. ”

John Jeter - The Handlebar

“For Ragged Orchids singer Scott Hart, the best album of 2009 was “Wilco (The Album)” Listen to Hart’s own band and it’s easy to see why Tweedy’s latest appeals to him. Ragged Orchids country-laced tracks, such as “Alone” and “Waste of Time,” bloom with pedal steel parabolas and lyrical melancholy.”
