Darren Hoff & the Hard Times / Press

"What Darren did, while ignoring my personal desires to hear a new Wearies album, was make an utterly fantastic country music record."

"His new CD, Darren Hoff & The Hard Times, is sheer, mellow-gold."

"A veteran of nearly a decade in the rootsy country act Weary Boys, Hoff is back in action and understandably proud of his new band's independently-released debut CD, Darren Hoff and the Hard Times..."

"Hoff delivers his best when unfettered on the drawling "Don't Let Your Deal Go Down" and blues burning closer "Long Hard Road."
