"John Adam Thomas... performs country with an indie edge. Not a soundalike, but in the same class as Jake Bugg." - New Ents Records, United Kingdom

"The songs on 'City Seventeen' don’t sound like just a handful of acoustic-written ditties with a band behind them: 'Shotgun Heart' pours out the kind of white-eyed Pentecostal fervor you’d find on records by Uncle Tupelo or Jason and the Scorchers; 'Dry County' has a layer of red-dirt grit and a soaring chorus suited for Thomas’ clear tenor; and 'Learn to Love The Hard Way,' with its stop-and-go rhythm, depends entirely on the band working together."
