—James Alan Shelton of Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys

“I’ve had a lot of reviews over the years, but this one goes in my keeper file. What really validated it for me was that you made no bones about not really caring for my previous projects. So, when you said you liked this one it rang true. I truly appreciate you taking the time to put forward your thoughts with such an obvious knowledge of the music. Well written and done with intelligence. I am impressed. Some reviewers don’t handle language as well as you do and don’t take the time to get inside what is going on.”
–Steve Spurgin, responding to my KDHX radio review of his album Folk Remedies

“I’ve read so much of your writing that I feel like I know you. I really enjoy your writing. You have developed a knack for saying exactly what needs to be said to put an artist’s music in context. Everything of yours I’ve read had helped me to understand and appreciate an artist more fully. Always pleased to see one of your pieced on the KDHX site. Just wanted to say thanks for all the great writing, which reflects good, sound thinking.”
–Keith Dudding, host of Down Yonder on KDHX Radio, St. Louis
