"A superb debut... stripped down sound... smoky voice pitched against fragile acoustic guitars... a selection of rich songs that set scenes and tell stories with simple poetic economy... subtle... as enduring as the prairies themselves... stunning."
- THE BIRMINGHAM POST (UK)

"An atmospheric Midwestern poet-troubadour, a charming presence and a splendid guitarist."
- THE BOSTON HERALD

"As strong a collection of songs as any debut is likely to be... weathered sweetness... rich and convincing... earnest and thoughtful... hints at experience which belies his 26 years... Miles from the Lightning is bound to be one of those rare debut albums that an artist's longtime fans will continue to revisit for years to come."
- DIRTY LINEN

"This debut album is simply magnificent... a singer-songwriter with an amazing gift for songs that fall somewhere in the hinterland of early Dylan, John Prine and Greg Brown, with touches of blues, country and folk."
- SOUTH HAMS NEWSPAPERS (UK)

"An intriguing songsmith... has impressed hard-to-please fellows including David Olney and Bill Morrissey... exemplary."
- THE TENNESSEAN (Nashville)

"A stunning first offering... a 27 year old singer songwriter with a dust coated voice that sounds like it's been around forever and a set of prime influences in Dylan, John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and, one might guess early Tom Waits... literate, poetic and intelligent stories... will certainly seep deep between the cracks in your soul and linger there for months... Foucault's pendulum is most definitely on the upswing."
- BIRMINGHAM 101 (UK)

"Jeffrey Foucault is too young and too good. It scares me, really."
- Chris Smither

Outstanding
Once in awhile you come across an artist that demands attention. This guy is one. He deserves all the praise for producing one of the finest debuts I have heard in a long time.

Rich vocals, thoughtful lyrics
I ordered this cd on recommendation of my good friend Mark Alan. I'm very glad I did. Jeffrey's music and lyrics are so soulful. We haven't taken it out of our player for over two weeks!

Lovely. Particularly moved by the last little piece.
It is a lovely CD. Quite moving. I was particularly struck by the last piece which I didn't happen to hear for at least two months.

Jeff's CD is both beautiful and comforting
I have had this cd for over a year and have never fallen out of love with it. Jeffrey is an excellent musician and lyricist. The cd is beautiful. It gives you a sense of being back home when you're away, or the feeling of being at summer camp, or up north at the cottage. This cd never stops bringing a smile to my face, and when I listen to it all I can do is just close my eyes and enjoy. Well done Jeffrey. I recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys beautiful acoustic melodies and wise, flowing lyrics.

Pure power and poetry
Since I bought this CD about a month ago, it has not left my CD player. It is magical, poetic and powerful. I look forward to many songs from this gifted artist.

Fave song Secretariat
Bought the CD at a show in Charlottesville--think I'm addicted to the song Secretariat--beautiful melody, lyrics rich in inventive imagery with a nice kick in the head at the end.

Great Album!
Foucault's haunting vocals, poetic lyrics, and delicate acoustic guitar really place "Miles from the Lighting" in the hall of musical must-have's. This has instantly become a personal favorite of mine, and I would recommend it to anyone. Superbly done!

Court Cline

An amazing & authentic voice. The CD is almost as good as seeing him live.
Miles for the Lightning is and incredible debut album by a truly gifted singer/songwriter. After hearing Jeff open for another performer at the Iron Horse in Northampton, I was immediately sold on him. He's part Chris Smither, part Townes Van Zandt & part Woody Guthrie. What else could you ask for? Order this amazing debut CD today, you won't be disappointed.
