Sam Bonney So heartbreakingly raw. Child-like wonder and the world-weariness of a lifetime come together on this EP. Favorite track: Nature Song.

Ben Rogers Beautiful record! To think that this was recorded on the side of the highway is amazing, I saw this guy for the first time when he was opening for the great Langhorne Slim, and he blew me away as he continues to. Do you ears a favor and buy this!

Ian O'Kelley raw, honest, and emotional

i'm not sure what more you could ask for. a good record for singing along passionately while driving through those places on the interstate where the forest on either side seems to swallow up the road Favorite track: Rare Feeling.
