Album Notes
Thoughtful, experimental folk rock." - Ann Arbor Current

"...delivers a new definition for acoustic music - one that refuses to fall back on folk standards and instead reinvents them with an eclectic ear tuned toward world rhythms and instrumentation." - Clamor Magazine

"...brings artfully crafted songs and a low key demeanor to all of his shows. This is music that will lull you into awareness." - Hobart Taylor, Crazy Wisdom Tea Room

"...daunting, entrancing acoustic melodies..." - Toledo City Paper

"...iconoclastic rhythms and indelible melodies...if paintings could sing, play guitar and keep time, they would be Hal Hixson." - WGTE Public Broadcasting

"That extra push the ol' Ford needs to climb the mountain passes of Colorado, that knowing pat the old barn horse needs to get back home; the gentle nudge of this "slow burn," modern male folk is reminiscent of those energy reserves that inject the soul with a little more hope in hope-faded times. With nods to Richard Buckner, Tom Waits, and Will Oldham, Hal Hixson sings with a memorable yet sinking mood that finds the bottom of the world and slowly rises to the top again. Charming, somewhat intentionally dreary and especially visceral, this is bluesy folk that's not to be passed over." - CDBaby

"[Hal Hixson's]...musical style is defined by both traditional sounds of various international flavors and a strikingly contemporary, sort of folk/indie-ish mesmerizing delivery." - The Athens Insider
