"That was fucking religious." - Jeremy L. Weiss (Launch! Music Festival Co-Directorafter seeing The Free Press live show at Launch! in Lancaster, PA
“Speakintones caught up with James Dallas Smith of The Free Press to find out how a bathtub full of liquor, life experiences and playing music has and keeps inspiring the Free Press to persevere.”
"Sounds like Hawksley Workman singing a Beatles song...Pop rock hasn’t sound this good in a while."
"This has to be one of my favourite bands of the year! This album is amazing from start to finish!"
"clearly these guys were seasoned performers, and their charisma slowly won me over...the vocal harmonies were note perfect...heavy hitting rock 'n roll, leaving the crowds and myself feeling plenty inspired."
"fantastic band...wow(ed) the excited crowd...It is very refreshing to see such natural talent. You believe these guys when they say they love what they do because you can feel it."
"..killer instrumentals, especially in “State of Emergency...better look for The Free Press on tour"
"he turned around to get into the first song, the room was filled and when the show started, those in it were singing along to his words. It was a success"
"the mass-appeal choruses that have made their influences famous....Dave Matthews, will be asking these guys to open for them any time soon."
“It was a pleasure having The Free Press here. We got a lot of awesome comments from the crowd. Throughout my career in music I have heard a lot of bands and I feel I can sincerely say that The Free Press rock! I think it’s only a matter of time before The Free Press gains wide recognition.”
"...this six-song EP has an irresistibly beautiful Tragically Hip, Can-rock feel. Their earnest lyrics and attentive guitar playing suck you in... The songs are solid alternative rock on a par with anything The Trews or Constantines are dishing out."
“The Free Press Get A Shot!”
