"a singer-songwriter of marked depth and commitment, (he) recalls a more subdued Steve Earle, a more grounded Ryan Adams and any aggregation of three-named Texas troubadours you'd care to recall."

"CASH CROP: young bucks taking a lead from Johnny Cash: Drunk, sober, or somewhere in between, Simmon’s words ring true."
"...not many singers achieve such a confident, full-bodied sound while delivering conversational confessions."
"He’s a first-rate storyteller whose experience seems beyond his young years, and he’s already building the kind of catalog that will carry him for the long haul."
"Vivid, intelligent and soulful."
"...he's a Bible Belt barstool philosopher singing of sin and redemption. Intelligent, intense, and easy to like."
