Wealthy Orphans / Press

“Beerhorst’s voice at times recalls Steve Wynn, or even Lou Reed while the song "Basquiat", about the New York artist, could have easily come from Reed’s pen, as could "Never Kissed a Girl Like You Before", although the latter's frenzied delivery does seem to nod in the direction of The Modern Lovers or even early Talking Heads. Having said that the music owes little to NY New Wave with much more light and shade in the dynamics.”

““Little Piece of the Pie,” the title track from The Wealthy Orphans new album, is driven by a rhythm that lurches along like a drunkard through life’s scrapyard where everything is well-worn and past its prime. While the song initially sounds like a down-on-your-luck lament, all of the stomping, banging and wheezing eventually give rise to a spunky celebration of resilience.”

"The DAAC's hardwood floors shook as the audience stomped their feet and clapped their hands to the band's folk rock sound...a great show left the audience humming their songs as they walked out the door."
