"Bassist Jesse Bowen and drummer Jeff Hawthorne lock into a steady groove when a chorus erupts that sounds like Dave Grohl went on a heavy bender with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers...” (NBC7's SoundDiego.com)

“Celebratory, with pounding drums propping up soaring choruses from Brian Holwerda and ripping electric guitar from Daniel Crawford and Tim Lowman.” (Soundsinsandiego.com)

“You really hear lead singer Brian Holwerda’s passion and soulful voice; I couldn’t help to draw comparisons to some of my other favorite contemporary country crooners such as such as David Mayfield or even Justine Townes Earl.”
- TheOwlMag.com (Oct 28, 2011)

“A fun, rollicking rock ‘n’ roll record full of enough good times to fill a long weekend. There’s a sea shanty, some bar room rag, and rock-solid rock and roll throughout. It’s an album that highlights the band’s wide ranging talents and ability to write solid stand alone songs, but as a whole makes for a damn fine all around album.”
