"[W}hat impressed me most about She Swings, She Sways is their strength of character, lightness of being, and depth of field. They’re folks clearly comfortable in their own skins, not the least apologetic to be simply who they are....These guys have a deep ease about them that either comes from living, working, traveling, writing, and spending so much time together, or in spite of it—I’m not sure. They seem to do it all deceptively well, live on radio, under a gazebo, or in the studio. Their hearts may be planted in the Iowa soil but their souls appear to be moonwalking toward the long and winding roadhouse blues, far, far away in that neverland place where bands hit paydirt by being themselves better than anyone else."
