Some press on Blood Moon:

"Notable new release." --No Depression

"Worth the 4-year wait ... The music conveys an attractively loose sensibility, yet every note feels carefully placed." --Chicago Reader

"Adds plenty of new stylistic wrinkles to the homespun, Wilco-esque alt-country of his 2014 II and 2011 Archive + Spiral" --Big Takeover

"... hitting a classic space that comes alive in the present." --Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Reminiscent of Jeff Tweedy’s lyrical style, Leonard Cohen’s vocal technique, and Josh Ritter’s honest relaying of stories ..." --Chicago Maroon

"A cosmopolitan blend of American and British folk." --Little Village

"Troubadour meets Americana ..." --Deli Magazine
