Male Vocalist of the Year – Dave Adkins
 
“Dave Adkins’ name needs to be placed right up next to all of the great vocalists in the hall of honor.”
Brian McNeal, Prescription Bluegrass Media
 
The River Man warps time to the olden days, in a
tough, Steeldrivers-like reading by Dave Adkins.”
COMPACT DREAMS
From the review of God Didn’t Choose Sides: Civil War True Stories About Real People
on
Rural Rhythm Records
 
“In an album of uniformly excellent performances, the most intense, heated one comes from the impressive Dave Adkins (whose first album with his band Republik Steel, That’s Just the Way I Roll, was a Deep Roots Album of the Week honoree).. The River Man, the apex of the Breedlove-Brinkman collaboration on this outing. Singing with his usual bluesy grittiness and striking sense of texture, Adkins wrings every ounce of drama out of the story of John P. Parker……”

“After seeing Republik Steele live a few
times I can honestly tell you that these boys have a ton of heart for
the music. They put 100% effort into what they do. I look forward to
seeing how far they go and what they do next. It will be a fun ride!”
Don Rigsby
 
“I have been around Bluegrass music in
one way or another for some time.  I have to say that Republik Steele is
not only a great band but they are also a great bunch of guys.  If you
are looking for a soulful, energetic and entertaining band look no
further than Republik Steele.”
Michelle Wallace (Morehead State Public Radio)
 
“When they strap on their instruments you are going to hear bluegrass with all the hair left on it. 
The music is going to reach down deep and touch your soul because it is
real.  Being from Elkhorn City, KY these boys have lived it….and you
can tell.  So, if you have the chance to hear Republik Steele strap
yourself in and buckle your chinstrap.  This is the “real deal”!!!!
Brink Brinkman (Songwriter Publisher)
 
“Instrumentally speaking, the band is
equally tight, with O’Quinn’s mandolin work, Cruby’s skills on the five
string, and Denny Ray Stilner’s thumping bass sounds all combining with
the guitar playing of Wolfe and Adkins to make for a sonic delight.”
MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE
 
Dave Adkins & Republik Steele made their debut last month at
#7 on Billboard’s Top 10 Bluegrass Album Chart
with THAT’S JUST THE WAY I ROLL (Rural Rhythm)
 
 
“This release isn’t HOT – it’s EXTREMELY
HOT!  Wow this is one of the finest new sounds I’ve heard in quite a
while” and PARCBENCH stating Adkins “voice finds just the right nuance
for each song, treating each as a unique musical portrait. His
trustworthy vocals frame each with warmth and authenticity.”
