“Songs of the Fall is country, bluegrass, and rock music that moves the spirit and reveals a first hand openness. There are lyrics that stir the lifeblood of their song’s subjects, bringing a new generation’s observations, driving rhythms of guitar and bluegrass banjo that makes me want to jig it up and throw it down, and then vocals that are so undeniably effective and bold with their core rooted deep in country music’s soul” -Mark O’Connor.
