Album Notes
Beckoning sounds of all-time great singer-songwriters such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and Leonard Cohen with modern influences such as Ryan Adams and Bon Iver, "Fly The Coop" is Mark Gothard's most complete work, broaching timeless yet organic themes and ideas such as dive bars, one-way relationships, beauty queens, and suburb entanglement. The roots of folk-blues-rock are at play here, delving back to days where a walk up a diveway sounded the crush of leaves underneath your feet, the smell of fresh cut grass, and the faint smell of smoke from a chimney.

Jennifer Briggs
...I have been dying to listen to a CD like “Fly the Coop” by Mark Gothard for quite some time now. It’s subliminal, it’s epic, it’ a grand concept that’s sure to get your attention – yet it’s very simple and magical...

Cyrus Rhodes
...“Fly the Coop” is a brilliant, striking and compelling musical production...

Thomas Klip
"...this album is testament to character, strong will power, strength, courage and having a strong resolve. Indeed many of these traits are possessed by many people all over America, and many of these traits are needed by many people around the world. Gothard reminds me mostly of Justin Townes Earle, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Elvis, The Hold Steady, Sturgill Simpson and Son Volt..."

Alex Velez
...This is not Jason Mraz or Maroon 5 either- not even close! It’s more like classic Bruce Springsteen, Whiskeytown, Tweedy, Jason Isbell, Justin Towne Earle...
