Their knack of combining Bluegrass, Americana, Twang and Folk create a notable and dinstinct sound that sets the band apart from the rest. ~ Emily Hinde, No Depression

These gentlemen combine all of the styles of good string music, they take influences from bluegrass, roots, and americana. Each song is like biting into a truffle–dark chocolatey decadence with a unique filling all its own. ~ Kate Bee, Ear To The Ground
