The Easy Ramblers / Press

“Maureen Henesey once again shows off her lovely singing voice in this follow-up record to The Easy Ramblers’ Syracuse Area Music Award winning debut effort, “Easy Does It.” It’s a pretty collection. Henesey, Eddie Zacholl and Dann Mather blend strings, bass, vocals and a comfortable feel that invites you to sit back and relax. Or, get up a dance a bit. There are plenty of memorable moments to do either.”

“Sawing fiddle, chugging mandolin, sweet guitar lines, deft banjo picking and smooth accordion all like beneath the most striking asset of the latest Easy Ramblers' disc: magnificent vocals. Harmonies are rich, but even stand-alone, Maureen Henesey's pipes are always controlled, precise and emotional. Henesey's voice, which swirls with depth and beautifully touches vocal heights, ties the whole album together, proving that the old-time bluegrass style is still very much alive.”

"A really good acoustic album of music that is steeped in ‘old timey’ as much as bluegrass or folk, all played by a talented trio, with lovely expressive female lead vocals."

"The blugrass trio, which took home the 2011 Syracuse Area Music Award (SAMMY) for Best Country, offers a CD debut filled with relaxed originals that could easily find a home on the soundtrack of the Coen Brothers' 2000 movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? The triumvirate of guitarist Eddie Zacholl, bassist Dann Mather and folksy chanteuse Maureen Henesey possess an undeniable chemistry that lends to their style dubbed easy grass."

"When Maureen Henesey (of Mere Mortals), Eddie Zacholl (of The Z-Bones) and Dann Mather (of Entourage) come together, the result is music full of rich harmonies and easy bluegrass instrumentations including fiddle, banjo and guitar. "
