"...fresh, smart, yet deeply personal and emotional words capturing life's significant moments and its lessons taught...grand and poetic and loaded with imagery"

 ~RIFT Magazine 


"...quirky humor, clever slice-of-life observations, and raw emotion." 

 ~MN Public Radio 


"evokes something between a workbench and great deal of focused labor and, well, a fine beer"

 ~Camden News


“A rich, sophisticated, clever, and earnest work that is immensely satisfying to my pop-weary ears.”

 ~MN Sound 


“This recording speaks its own language through a dictionary of contemporary romance…missionaries reaching around for the first time to touch to the moon of whit.”

 ~Splendid e-Zine
