"Magic present...an understanding of the vision of the song — crafting with clear original intention."


"Worthy of soundtracking your downfall in a dive country bar six miles past nowhere. But, you know, it’s hopeful too."

Nicholas Friesen - The Uniter

“The biggest surprise of the night, however, might be the Kingston, Ont. Tom Savage Trio, which draws easy comparisons to nu-school alt-country — see: Hold Steady’s more tender ends or Son Volt — and old-school cow-punk like The Cramps.”

“They were excellent, they played the blues and upbeat, tight alt-country. Like Canada’s own version of the Drive By Truckers.”

“The Tom Savage Trio is the kind of band that will rock your socks off - if you let them. ”

“If you like your Americana amped up, i.e. The Bottle Rockets or Drive-By-Truckers then you are sure to like this disc, yet another stellar release from our neighbors to the North!”

“By Far the best song that Tom did was his last song which was a Bob Dylan cover, he gave it all in this song. While I was looking around you could see that people where thinking the same thing that I was thinking holy Sh*t, It was simply flat out amazing. By the way he was hitting and the speed and which he was hitting his strings I can’t believe the he didn’t break any of the strings.”

“The Tom Savage Trio has their own way of mixing original, raw, and powerful country rock sounds with a live classic rock jam band attitude.”

“Ontario country-rocker Tom Savage's newest release, The County Line, is a continuation of the defiant, individualistic road-weary music that he made with his last effort, Never Shed No Tears. ”

“...a bit of old-school country, a touch of punk, a smattering of Reverend Horton Heat rockabilly, a jazz jam and lot of rock ’n’ roll in the style of the Drive By Truckers, Wilco and Son Volt. ”
