Some press on II (2014):

"... a time capsule from an alternate past, as though a band of 70s Nashville malcontents had learned to harness the beauty of David Bowie in his prime. This isn’t classic rock, but it feels like something classic indeed." --Chicago Reader

"... a fine craftsman, and the songs on his latest album reflect an expert tuning of words, melodies and harmonies." --Chicago Sun-Times

"... another effort worth celebrating, particularly if you're a fan of lyrically savvy troubadours like Tom Waits and Jeff Tweedy." --USA Today

"... a record full of odes to wounded romanticism accessorized with lush pedal steel guitars, string arrangements and his rich baritone." --Cleveland Plain Dealer

"... stands out from the crowd of rootsy singer-songwriters by virtue of his outrageously tuneful songwriting and instinct for the perfect arrangement." --Little Village

" ... a refreshingly unique and original take on rootsy folk-rock." --Empty Bottle

" ... dreamy textured country rock ..." --CIMMFest

"Top 10 Chicago Albums of 2014." --Red Eye
