Gunther Brown / Press

““The first thing that strikes you is the voice of Pete (who has also written the ten songs on the album, including three in collaboration), the singer has the desire and ability to to express both strength and emotion a bit like John Kay (Steppenwolf) in his solo period. The second striking thing is the quality of the compositions, the ability of the songwriter (and the group) in combining diversity and unity.””

Le Cri du Coyote (France)

““Ten very mature songs that carry you into a sort of pleasant sadness.””

Rootstime (Belgium)

““This is a really strong album that can sit with relative ease in the aforementioned loose sub genre of ‘Americana rock’ .. Gunther Brown are genuinely a band that are doing things a little differently to most others and their individuality should, given the slightest chance, set them apart and make them immediately recognizable, giving them an excellent chance of major success.””

American Roots UK

““Plenty of alt-country bands around, but not like Gunther Brown, Fabulous – the songs are convincing, and surprising. From subtle to gritty and integrating swamp-rock and country-gospel … a record that is still more impressive than the amazing debut and which therefore absolutely deserves to be heard.””

De krenten uit de pop (Netherlands)

““Such a gorgeous set of songs. This is what a roots album is supposed to sound like.””

MusicMeter (Netherlands)

““‘North Wind’ is many things at once: tender, fierce, thought-provoking, powerful and even fun. Could lavish praise on every track … this band is really onto something.””

Portland Press Herald

““The view from Portland, Maine collective Gunther Brown is seen as one of your great Americana promises for 2016.””

Ctr.Alt.Country. (Belgium)

““RESIGNED TO GREATNESS – The guys in Gunther Brown can lay on the biting spite pretty thick, but they also embrace pure emotion. With Gunther Brown’s debut full-length, frontman Pete Dubuc and crew have created the most sorrowful local record since Ray Lamontagne’s Till the Sun Turns Black.””

““Gunther Brown’s debut album is forty minutes of resignation and despair set to one of the most mournful soundtracks you’re likely to hear this year or any other. Leader and songwriter Pete Dubuc is a master of despondency.””

““Dubuc’s voice squeezes out every ounce of hurt and emptiness… they may well indeed find a place alongside such other Americana alumni of the state [of Maine] as Slaid Cleaves and Ray Lamontagne.””
