Nancy Dunham, AOL/The Boot
“The pair’s strong, pure voices are way up front on solos, but the album really flies when they go at it together in a blend of that special harmony only siblings can achieve.”
– Ed Symkus, Boston Herald
“They have a down-home, natural style that is given room to breathe in this straightforward album. Their positive message is in every note, and their souls whistle through the spaces in between. It’s a ride well worth taking.
– Greg Victor,
“… a telegenic brother-sister bluegrass and country duo with a passel of thoughtful, deeply felt original songs, engaging personalities and boundless energy. The harmonies are captivating, the voices evocative, the songs impressive and arresting, the playing impeccable.
David McGee,
