One of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know” – “Modern-day Buddy Holly plus Dwight Yoakam divided by the Mavericks…Think-y, soulful lyrics paired with a beat you can dance to.”
“Imagine Lyle Lovett and Chris Isaak paying tribute to classic American rock n’ roll from Elvis, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison.” —The Boston Herald
“Ward Hayden and company bring traditional honky-tonk country and Americana into a modern country rock setting, melding Yoakam-esque vocals with the most uncompromising musicianship you’ll find outside the confines of Nashville.” —Pop Matters (Top 10 Country Albums of 2011)
“With all this strum and twang, it’s hard to believe Hayden – who recalls smooth talkers like Chris Isaak and Dwight Yoakam, with a dash of Buddy Holly’s jumpy, hiccupy style – hails from Scituate and not the South….Girls Guns and Glory demonstrates a mastery of moods and roots styles that transcends regional boundaries.” —The Boston Globe
