"comforting and pleasant as a bright autumn day...a little bit like Elliott Smith if he’d founded a scruffy alt-country band and moved to Oklahoma"

- Rolling Stone

(https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/john-calvin-abney-when-this-blows-over-1073185/)

"With a vulnerability reminiscent of Elliott Smith and a friendliness evoking Neal Casal....stories of life that appear deeply personal and yet immediately relatable"
