“Whether digging country roots or rocking guitars, these hearty rascals from Greenwich, NY produce incredibly appealing tight rhythms, choral elation and rollicking stomp.”

“Eastbound Jesus crank out a great blend of rock, bluegrass and country songs that are exquisitely written and delivered with energetic and heartfelt performances. These six guys are tight and confident with distinctive original songs and a great stage presence. Their creative juices are overflowing right now. My advice is to see these guys live any chance you get…”

“Eastbound Jesus is a phenomenal new band. Holy Smokes! displays some fantastic talent both in the instrumentation and the lyrics. They have drawn from all corners of the musical landscape, at times that aforementioned bluegrass influence shines through right alongside some garage rock, jamband and straightforward country sounds.”

“We continue to be fascinated by the many ways young musicians find to create new music using the instruments most commonly associated with the bluegrass ensemble. We found another such group this week in upstate New York. Eastbound Jesus. Their music may not be informed by Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs or the Stanleys, but to a very large audience of young acoustic music lovers, the sound would be categorized as bluegrass.”
