Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck / Press

“This onetime Levon Helm compatriot is the best artist to come from New England in recent years, and Eden, co-produced and engineered by Grammy-winner Justin Guip (Helm, Black Crowes) and mastered in Nashville, is just excellent all the way through.”

“The quality of the songwriting and the careful precision of the arrangements - balanced with loose and comfortable performances - bring to mind Dave Matthews Band, though Thayer and his band rock much harder.”


“Think early Wilco with a broader sound or a modernized version of The Band and you've got an idea of Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck's M.O., but they definitely have their own distinct approach and delivery. It's full of vitality and soul. "Modern backwoods music" (as someone labeled them) describes it pretty well.”

“Thayer once again justifies his reputation as a sublimely gifted artist. And, this time, he may have finally created the record that will introduce him to listeners beyond New England.”

“I’m sorry if ‘blown away’ is an oft-used word in anyone’s language, much less a music reviewer’s, but I was.”

“An outfit that should be on all Seattleites' radar is Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck… On "Bottom of the Sky," all the players contribute to an intricate and layered sound that sets Bow apart from many of their contemporaries. This is a band that is worth many listens.”
