Stace England & The Salt Kings / Press

"Now his life and work have been set to music in the new album by Stace England and the Salt Kings called The Amazing Oscar Micheaux. Guest host Ari Shapiro talks to England about the concept album."

"In some songs, including 'Veiled Aristocrats' (about light-skinned blacks passing for white), he tackles the issues head on: in others, such as 'The Betrayal,' he does it indirectly. Either way, the high lonesome voices and scalding electric guitars are stirring."

"The Girl From Chicago is a fantastic track that I personally thank Mr. Micheaux for inspiring which, along with the country inflected Lying Lips are worth buying this hugely impressive album for on their own. 9 out of 10 Rating."

"Couple this with Greetings from Cairo, Illinois -- an album about the state, released a few years ago -- and it's safe to say that England is emerging as one of the finest modern historians/songwriters."
