“How do you top an impressive debut album? How about with coming in with some of the best singer/songwriter material since Kristofferson's first two albums. Working Americana rather than Kris' progressive country, there might be 45 years of time and tide between these two poles but the wow factor is undiminished and right on the money throughout. A deceptively gentle album where the duo carries the weight with some coloration here and there, this is a classic example of real music for real music fans who find themselves still playing this years from now. Hot stuff.”

“Take the cornerstones of acoustic Americana, add a touch of bluegrass, country and folk, mix together with dedication, superb musicianship and then add precise harmonies. Do that and you forge the inspiring album ‘If Stones Could Talk’ by Gene and Gayla Mills. For those that love fables of experience, tragedy, love and endeavour both happy and sad plus the indefinable human essence that comes in spades with Americana, this is an album you must have. The strength of this album lies in its perceptive individual stories. The raw emotion of songs like ‘River, Railway and Road’ with its mournful, almost desperate longing for reunion, the simple honesty of love recounted in ‘Everyday Things’ and the heart-wrenching poignancy of ‘Forgetting’. If these songs don’t move you then your soul is made of stone. The rich warmth in Gene’s voice and Gayla’s tender tones blend to pull you into these songs and ensure each message stays with you long after the last note fades.”

“This singer/songwriter/folk/Americana set is great…Mills has a fully formed sound in his head that he knows how to communicate in such fine style that you’ll be scratching your head about why this is micro indie. Some of the best organic music you could hope to come across from all components and angles. Killer stuff.”
