Todd Hallawell and Robin Kessinger / Press

"Todd and Robin are collaborators who obviously have made it to the same page musically… they weave in and out of each others musical space with expertise and grace… all hot with virtuosity and warped with beautiful irony”.

Dan Crary - From liner Notes for 'Ear Candy'

““What tone ... what sound ... what touch.””

Jon Chappell - Frets Magazine

"…The elocution, the execution, and the inherent musicality of this artist's work becomes immediately apparent... Hallawell is a player's player...with a seemingly effortless dexterity, he articulates notes as such, without the artifacts of effort ... In short, he makes the competition sound clums

Steve Klingaman - Minor 7th

"…Hallawell attacks his steel-strings with the precision of John Williams and punch of Jerry Reed...an extraordinary fingerpicker"

Andy Ellis - Guitar Player Magazine

““When Robin Kessinger performs, you can hear the ghosts of generations past joining in to help blend the notes from his guitar into the familiar strains of old-time tunes.” ”
