Bob McWilliams

KPR Kansas Public Radio
Bob McWilliams, KPR (Kansas) says:
“Darn you, Johnsmith! I'm driving on a gorgeous day, and put your new CD in to listen. ‘Family Artifacts,’
reduced me to tears and made me pull off the road. As you have done in the past, you have written another song that brings to the surface so many emotions. And you do it again and again throughout ‘The Longing Road.’ If it is even possible, you do it more powerfully than ever before. Your gift of writing deceptively simple songs that spring from a deep place in the soul is a rare one. And with the likes of Tim O'Brien, Darrell Scott and Tom Prasada-Rao, the musical settings are exquisite.”

Anna Fris

Another touching, true and inspiring album
Listening to Johnsmith is always an experience that leaves me with a feeling of our shared humanity, an understanding that we all go through these passages in life, we all share the same basic needs and hopes for ourselves and those that come after us. We need to listen to the voices that have gone before us and that are with us today . Everything is going to be OK, always, because we are all in this together. Anytime I'm feeling discourages and cynical John's music brings me up and helps me to see the big picture.
