Chris Beall / Press

"Chris Beall, champion of the Americana genre...an incredibly talented songwriter with lyrics that alternate from playful to contemplative to broodingly philosophical."

"For fans of Americana, country rock and blues I highly suggested engrossing yourselves in this sophomore album from Chris Beall, titled The Gin Mill Hymns. Each and every song is a winner..." Featured in Artist Spotlight, Editor's Selections

"...with influential nods to Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, and the storytelling style of Bruce Springsteen... 'The Gin Mill Hymns' is a treat to listen to and belongs in your car stereo on a road trip or as the soundtrack on the way to work."

"Americana/Roots artist Chris Beall is quite the story teller in his second album...“Spike Driver Blues” makes for the perfect soulful song...This bluesy tune will have you swaying along to the background vocals like you are right alongside preaching." 4 Star Rating

"Chris is the quintessential independent artist. I would probably go as far as to say that he is the poster child for the new 'alternative music industry' that has developed..."
